Junior School

Religious Studies in the junior part of the school is designed to give each child an introduction to the main stories in the Old and New Testament. It is also structured to help the children interpret the meanings from the stories and find their relevance in today’s world.

These stories will form the basis for Section One and Two of the Common Entrance Syllabus.

Included in the syllabus is a section on Other World Religions. It is hoped that the children will gain an insight into the beliefs of several main religions. There are other themes included which widen the scope of the subject i.e. Saints, Stories, People of Faith.
