Our school is an amalgamation of 3 Catholic Voluntary Schools with Mercy, Presentation and CBS traditions. The syllabi provide students with a framework for understanding the variety of religious traditions in Ireland and elsewhere. It offers opportunities to develop an informed and critical understanding of the Christian tradition and seeks to develop in students the skills needed to engage in meaningful dialogue with those of other, or of no, religious traditions. Religion is studied by students of all religions and none. It is a non-exam subject at Junior and Senior Level in the school.
Junior Cycle Religious Education focuses on developing knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and values to enable young people to come to an understanding of religion and its relevance to life, relationships, society and the wider world. The course is built around three interconnecting strands: Exploring Beliefs, Exploring Questions and Living our Values.
