We are privileged to offer Religious Education, where students gain six credits per unit, and in each unit, they are eligible to pass with achievement, achievement with merit and achievement with excellence. Number of our students have reflected higher achievement, receiving merit or excellence through course endorsements in Religious studies. This has reflected in gains towards NCEA certificate endorsement.
The Ministry does not provide developed resources relating to our subjects matters, due to difficulties associated with selecting contexts that would be useful to teachers. This I believe is because each school would be selecting different context specific to their religious faith.
This allows the Religious studies department at Al-Madinah school to develop teaching, learning and assessment resources for the students that are relevant to our special character of the school and the wider community.
