Religious Studies

Religious Studies is the key to overcoming prejudice, through education and exposure. In the increasingly multi-cultural country in which we live it is important for young minds to understand the faiths followed.

  • Understand the major world faiths of Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Islam & Hinduism
