TPR (theology, philosophy and religion) is an exciting subject which contributes to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our girls.
The junior girls develop their knowledge of Christianity including learning about the Church as a place of worship, key Christian festivals, and studying a number of Bible stories. Our studies also take place outside the confines of the classroom with a variety of visits and celebrations held in our local church, Holy Trinity.
The senior girls develop their knowledge of Christianity by examining texts from the Old and the New Testament. They also learn about major world faiths including Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism. The syllabus evokes discussion and debate, allowing the girls to reflect and evaluate their personal beliefs and show tolerance and respect for people of all faiths. TPR provides a firm platform upon which the girls can formulate their own philosophies and values and inspires them to think about themselves and the world around them.
In Years 5 and 6, TPR aims to develop the girls' ability to form a structured argument using evidence and reasoning when exploring theological, philosophical, religious, ethical and moral issues.
