Is Religion an outdated, irrelevant subject? Hardly. A basic understanding of religion
and religions is indispensable knowledge for anyone functioning within a contemporary,
multicultural society. All children need to acquire core knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and practices of the religions and worldviews which not only shape their history and culture but which guide their own development. The modern world needs young people who are sufficiently confident in their own beliefs and values that they can respect the religious and cultural differences of others, and contribute to a
cohesive and compassionate society.
