Religious Education at The Orchard Centre is designed to provoke challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong and what it means to be human.

It offers opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development. It enhances students’ awareness and understanding of religions and beliefs, teachings, practices and forms of expression, as well as of the influence of religion on individuals, families, communities and cultures.

RE has an important role in preparing young people

for adult life, employment and lifelong learning.

It enables students to develop respect for

and sensitivity to others, in particular those

whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own.

It promotes discernment and enables students to combat prejudice.
