In Study of Religion you will move beyond your comfort zone, out in the world beyond Catholicism to explore other types of Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam & Hinduism.


This subject comprises 4 units:

  • Religion & Ritual
  • Sacred Texts & Religious Writings
  • Ethics
  • Religion, Rights & the Nation-State

The Year 10 Religious Education units all draw from the theme of the hero's journey. For the boys, their time at Waterford Place is a unique part of their life at Terrace journey - away from the main campus - after which they return as seniors.
