Religious Education is taught in many different ways at church related schools. In the Anglican School tradition, we believe that the most important thing is that our children know the stories; God’s stories of saving work, love, and grace. The scriptures are our story book; really a book of small dramas that all point to the big drama of God’s salvation. What better way to hear and learn the dramas than to be a part of the dramas. Using the dramatic arts, we learn our own place in the great drama that gives life joy and meaning.
