In Year 8, students begin by exploring the impact that religion has had on our society and the values people can learn from religion. The first topic they study is what life was like in Bible times, followed by a Christmas project in which they design a Christmas card with religious significance. After Christmas Year 8 students study The Bible and its origins, and finish off the year thinking about who Jesus was.
Year 9 begin the year with a group work project which explores different beliefs about creation. The topic of faith is then explored, thinking first about what faith is, followed by the different ways it is expressed around the world. The year is concluded through an exploration of the life of Moses which leads into a study of the religion of Judaism.
In Year 10, we begin with a study of the life of Ruth, followed by a study of the religion of Islam. Students then have an opportunity to explore the concepts of forgiveness, love and judgement and the impact they have on moral and ethical decision making.
