SJT Students Attend Religious Studies Day
Four Year 12 students from Sir John Talbot’s School recently took part in a one-day Religious Studies conference at the University of Chester. The aim of the day was to increase subject knowledge and provoke engaging debates about a wide range of theological talking points.
During the day, the participants touched on many different aspects of religious belief. As well as investigating arguments for the existence of God and developing a better understanding of Christian beliefs regarding life after death, the students also discussed Hindu beliefs of self and the views that celebrated philosophers and psychoanalysts held on religion.
While discussions could have raged on all night, the students were also given an insight into university life and given an overview of the benefits of reading Theology and Religious Studies at university. Finally, they were offered exam tips as well as more general guidance about focussing on life aspirations.
Hannah Webb, RE Teacher at Sir John Talbot’s, commented, “As always, our students represented us excellently at the University of Chester. As well as experiencing student life in some taster Theology and Religious Studies lectures, they had a campus tour, spoke to current university students and gained extra information about UCAS and student finance along the way. The day was a great learning experience and their aspirations were definitely raised!”
