Art in Heaven: The NATRE (National Association of Teachers of Religious Education) are running a competition to help students explore their spiritual ideas, questions and beliefs. Each year the competition sets 5 themes that students need to respond to through art, and once again this year they are themes that will get them talking, thinking, debating and questioning for themselves. This year’s themes are:
- Open Minded!
- Life is Sacred
- Justice for Everyone
- Who is God?
