Religion plays an important role on our society and can influence what people think, feel and believe. Through studying Religious Education, students get a broad look at how religion and spirituality form the basis of our culture.
Religious Education (RE) is a compulsory part of the Northern Ireland curriculum, although parents have the right to withdraw their child from part or all of RE or collective worship. Ulidia provides RE in accordance with the core syllabus drawn up by the four main churches and specified by the Department of Education. The Department specified a revised core syllabus in June 2007, which has been phased in from September 2007.
The RE Department at Ulidia Integrated College aims to promote the ethos of the College by educating Catholics, Protestants and those of other religions or none in an atmosphere of understanding and tolerance to the highest academic standards.
