Religious and moral education

​The religious and moral education (RME) curriculum area includes the two distinct areas of religious and moral education (non-denominational) and religious education in Roman Catholic schools.

Religious and moral education (non-denominational) involves exploring Beliefs, Values and Issues and Practices and Traditions through the context of Christianity, World Religions selected for study and belief groups independent of religion. It supports children and young people in the development of their own beliefs and values. Religious education in Roman Catholic schools includes the study of Catholic Christianity (including the Mystery of God, In the Image of God, Revealed Truth of God, Son of God, Signs of God, Word of God, Hours of God, Reign of God) and other world religions (including beliefs, values and issues, practices and traditions).
