Year 10 Christian Studies

Rationale

In Year 10 students continue to consider their worldview in light of a Christian worldview. Christianity is not a sub section of a person’s life but it is an overarching way of thinking and believing that covers every area of life.

Students will examine the intersection between the Christian faith and many thinking realms such as philosophy, ethics, wellbeing, psycholoogy, social justice and history. In doing this students will be asked to consider a range of views and ideas to encourage them to deliberately think through and reflect on life’s big questions.
