R&P is a school situated in Raphoe, DRY seeks to support and encourage Christian learning through involvement in assemblies, lessons and extra curricular activities.
The DYO takes two R.E classes in Royal and Prior School, Raphoe ever week. Topics range from discrimination and human rights to Church history and the role of Christianity today.
To educate young people in Donegal about the life of Jesus and teach them in relevant and inspiring ways, so that they discover more about Christianity in a positive environment.
Two half hour classes on Tuesday and Wednesday where the focus will be on discussion, chat and informal learning. This is not an assessed class, so a variety of discussions around various topics will be explored.
How it meets the diocesan strategy:
Deeper: Many people decide at a young age if they want to follow Christianity. School can a place of great learning and it is hoped that through interactive and informative lessons, pupils will see how real and relevant Christianity can be for them. It is hoped that this will help those who have faith, encourage those who are seeking, and respectfully challenge those who do not believe.
Closer: In working in the school, it is hoped that relations between the diocese and the young people in Co Donegal will strengthen. Events will be publicised and new opportunities for growth and development will hopefully emerge.
Wider: In working in the school, the DYO intends to explore opportunities to broaden horizons through possible summer trips.
