Meet our RE Department
Our Vision as an RE department
The primary purpose of Religious Education is to come to know and understand God’s revelation, which is fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ; and to give insight to the importance of faith in the wider world and its impact on moral thinking and collaboration with others.
