Religious Studies and Citizenship

Welcome to Evelyn Grace Academy’s Religious Studies and Citizenship Department

Religion can be considered the most important influence on the lives of everyone in the world. Even if we think that we do not believe in any religion, and that it is nothing to do with us, nevertheless, it affects a great many aspects of our everyday lives, wherever we live. Religious education can offer explanation to some fundamental questions of life: are we born, why do we suffer, what happens to us when we die? Or exploring questions like; does God truly exist? If God exist, why do we suffer?

Citizenship education is about enabling people to make their own decisions and to take responsibility for their own lives and their communities.

But citizenship education is more than that.

Democracies need active, informed and responsible citizens; citizens who are willing and able to take responsibility for themselves and their communities and contribute to the political process.

Democracies depend upon citizens who, among other things, are:

  • Aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens
  • Informed about the social and political world
  • Concerned about the welfare of others
  • Articulate in their opinions and arguments
  • Capable of having an influence on the world

Our Head of Department is Ms Ukonu
