For a 20-credit subject, students study two or three big ideas.

At Stage 2 students engage in reflective analysis in response to stimuli such as guest speakers, documentaries and excursions, contextualised by one of the six big ideas. They explore a concept or issue from a religious and/or spiritual perspective and collaborate with others to apply their learning.

The following six big ideas frame learning in this subject by inviting inquiry into religious and spiritual perspectives in context.
