Religious Education


Latest News

On Thursday 8 th November five trustees from the ‘Faith to Face Programme’ visited Integrated College Dungannon. The visitation included interviewing ICD students, speaking with RE teachers in the Dungannon area, and seeking ways to develop this programme throughout Northern Ireland. ‘Face to Faith’ is an innovative schools programme for 12-17 year olds, active in 19 countries and growing. The rationale of this programme is not only to enrich the teaching within RE classes, but also enrich the experiences of pupils as they learn about issues in relation to building relationships with schools globally. The programme’s aim is to bring together students from a wide variety of faith and belief perspectives, including secular and new belief systems, alongside those of traditional religious beliefs, through facilitated video conferences. Furthermore, it provides an online community where students can discuss global issues with each other from a variety of faith and belief perspectives. Essentially, Face to Faith is an excellent tool, changing the way students learn about religion by exposing them to the cultures and faiths they study.
