Can War Be Just?
Year 10 RE Conference on War and Peace
Year 10 were off timetable all day on Tuesday 15th March 2022 as they were taking part in the second RE Conference looking at religious views on War and Peace. We started the day thinking about ‘What is the need for war?’ and ‘Why is there war between countries of the same faith?’. The students found that, after some research and discussion, their views changed as they developed a deeper understanding of a variety of perspectives and opinions. The staff leading the sessions were impressed at the mature and sensible way that the students approached this topic. This led to some high quality debate.
Students worked on their own group presentations to present to their peers. One presentation per form was chosen to present to the whole year group at the end of the day in the school Hall.
Thank you to all the staff who helped to deliver the Conference.
