Re:link is a 4-page supplement, which appears in The Sacred Heart Messenger magazine every month. Re:link is linked with the Religious Education curriculum and is produced and edited by a secondary school religion teacher. Re:link is not designed to replace textbooks, but it can be used as an additional resource for students, teachers and parents. What makes Re:link different from other publications is that it offers up-to-date information and examples in the way that textbooks cannot. Re:link produces information in a way that students can relate to, whether it be celebrity profiles, interviews with students their own age or through competitions.
You can find Re:link in the centre pages of The Sacred Heart Messenger magazine, which can be bought in many newsagents around the country, in your parish, or from a local promoter in your area. You can also subscribe online at messenger.ie or fill in the subscription form on the back page of this leaflet!
My name is Faith. Coming from a background of teaching Religious Education at St. Conleth’s Community College in Newbridge and my previous studies in Theology at the Mater Dei Institute, I have found that students retain information given in concrete examples. I believe that this applies even further, when it is an example that they can relate to; such as a personality their own age or a celebrity whom they are knowledgeable of. This supplement aims to give relate-able topics on current themes, which will be an additional resource for students of secondary level Religious Education. This is not intended to replace the student’s textbooks, but instead to enrich their learning through curriculum related articles, celebrity profiles and other present day topics.
