Level 3 Religious Education
Teacher in Charge: M. Ward
Religious Studies at Level 3 recognises that for many students this is their final year at secondary school. Christian adulthood requires critical judgement, the ability to see issues, judge actions and decisions. What we have learnt from the last millennium is that human beings are smart enough to deal with the major problems that have occurred as a result of the many technological advances; others occur simply because long term impacts of advances have not been considered in terms of what is ethical, moral, what is ecologically and socially sustainable for our planet and its occupants. More than ever, the development in human intelligence and technological advancement needs to be developed within a moral, ethical (religious) and emotional framework. The course recognises how important it is to consider one's own world-view and to recognise the word-view of others.
Students who have not attained at least 6 Level 2 RE credits may be directed to repeat the Level 2 course of study.
