RS at KHS is about things that matter - things like life, purpose, worth, death, relationships,suffering, meaning and the person of Jesus.
All our courses cater for all abilities. We actively seek to encourage our students to engage with the big ideas of life teaching them how to think for themselves as they prepare for adult life.
All students from a faith and non-faith background are treated equally and with respect. The Mourne area has a very broad range of denominational backgrounds and none. This provides a very rich Spiritual learning environment within the classroom. Students are encouraged to work out and enage with their own beliefs while at the same time engage with and respect the religious beliefs and backgrounds of those who differ from their own. This is a skill that is very much encouraged within RS at KHS.
The material we are required to cover can sometimes be of a sensitive nature. We fully support the role of parent in the education of young people. We encourage this valuable partnership that school and home can provide our young people as we lead them through some of the more sensitive material.
All staff in the RS department believe in and uphold the school's Christian ethos. Do please contact us at the school office or arrange to meet with the Head of Department to discuss any matter.
