The RE Department lies at the heart of the school’s foundation for the purpose of the spiritual and moral education of our young people according to the Catholic faith.
This means that the department not only strives for academic excellence but also provides many other aspects of spiritual and moral development. This involves provision of liturgical activities, assemblies, weekly and ‘special’ masses, retreats and a variety of related activities. The department is well-supported in these matters by our local priests.
