Jillian Howe

Being a student in Wales, RE means to me… broadening my knowledge of religious and social issues in the world around us.  Not only is RE fascinating subject but it helps to explain the diversity in life.

Morgan Stubbs

Being a student in Wales, RE means to me… learning about diverse faiths and cultures of the world and interesting social issues.  It allows me to express my views while hearing others and provoking compelling debate.

Emma Howe

Being a student in Wales, RE means to me the different views and cultures of people around the world.  I love learning about religions that I may not come across in my everyday life and gives me a wider and more diverse view of the world

RE in Wales is both an integral part of our generation’s historical and cultural heritage and out contemporary understanding of humanity as a whole.  RE for me is an outlet for individual expression, opinion and spiritual appreciation.

Imogen Bargate

I like studying RE in Wales because it’s the only subject in school that the teacher asks for my own personal viewpoints and opinions and respects them.

Ellen Cheung

I like studying RE because it teaches us to think beyond our dreams.

Megan Bentley

I like studying RE because Wales is a small country which is influenced a lot by religion, even Llandudno has a religious meaning to it and most of the place names in Wales.

Kalen Lindell

I like studying RE because Wales is changing with lots of people from different cultures and religions here-so it’s important to make them feel welcome and understand what they believe.

Fay Burton

I like studying RE in Wales because it’s a lesson that my voice can be heard and not many people listen to children my age.

Rhys Henderson

I like studying Re in Wales because I can talk about issues which have no definitive answers, and my answers are a part of this.

Rhys N. Williams

I like studying RE In Wales because the history and culture of Wales would not exist without Religion.
