It has been an action-packed and productive end to Term 1 for Religious Education classes across the school. Students have been working hard and completing a range of assessment tasks to demonstrate what they have learned so far this year. We have seen some very creative vlogs and writing produced by Year 8 students depicting the life of different Jewish groups in the time of Jesus, informative posters on female heroes of the Hebrew scriptures from Year 9 students and, as part of their Unit 2 studies, Year 12 students have taken a close look at the application of ethical approaches to a scenario.
In the lead up to Holy Week, Religious Education classes have taken some time to pray ‘The Way of the Cross’, either by walking to each of the fourteen beautiful stations set up around the school, or in their own classrooms. Students have entered into this experience with reverence and respect, and have shown a willingness to be active participants in leading their class in one or more stations.
The Religious Education Learning Area team wish all students and their families a safe, holy and joyful Easter.
