What is Christian Studies?
Christian Studies is a Key Learning Area in the curriculum structure of a Lutheran school and is an essential part of the Christian education program which is the total life of the school. It acknowledges that all people are on a lifelong journey of faith expressed in many dimensions of life. It presents to students a Christian worldview and a pathway for making meaning in their lives.
Christian Studies provides a safe and supportive context in which students can reflect on their experiences of the world and on their own beliefs and spirituality as they attempt to make sense of their rapidly changing and complex global environment. In the Christian Studies classroom learners are engaged in intellectually challenging experiences that actively involve them in constructing their own meanings. They pose their own questions, gather, analyse and reflect on information as they explore their identity as individuals in the 21st century.
