Religion and Ethics helps students to know and understand the influence that values, belief systems or religious traditions have on their own and other people's behaviour. A search for meaning helps students from various cultural, social, linguistic and economic backgrounds to learn about and reflect on the richness of religious and ethical worldviews. Religion and Ethics encourages students to develop ethical attitudes and behaviours required for effective participation in the community and to think critically, creatively and constructively about their future role in it.
