What is Christian Studies?
Christian Studies is a core academic subject taught from Prep to Year 12 so students can learn about God’s ongoing love and care for all people and for the planet on which we live. Through a Lutheran lens Christian Studies presents a Christian worldview to students and offers a pathway for making meaning in their lives, whilst acknowledging their individual journeys of faith.
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. ln 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.
