Curriculum Theological Underpinnings
“He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: ‘Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed….”
Jesus’ main teaching style was through parables which were dramatics stories that challenged, provoked and invited their audience to see the world and God’s plan in different ways. We want all our students to have the opportunity through drama to grow in empathy with others and see the world through different eyes.
