Two visiting theatre groups have been challenging Loreto students in RE lessons. First off, the London based Ten Ten theatre group performed interesting plays focusing on relationships, followed by engaging workshop activities with students. Then Riding Lights Roughshod theatre company put on some excellent performances on challenging contemporary issues such as people-trafficking and business ethics.
Head of RE Ms Robinson said both theatre companies were very skilled at enhancing the students' learning. "These groups have significantly enhanced the learning of our students in R.E. These were stimulating thought-provoking discussions presented in an exciting and original way, raising interest and awareness of faith-commitment in 21st century Britain," she added.
As part of their course Upper sixth students had been studying the sanctity of life ethic and other justice issues, particularly people-trafficking. Lower sixth students have been reflecting on relationships in the context of ethical decision-making.
