Objectives

The Religious and Moral Education Council exists to improve knowledge, understanding, and practice in the field of religious and moral education.

We are committed to serving teachers through the values of faith, dignity, respect, and collaboration.

Activities

The council holds an annual conference each fall with world-class speakers and various activities within. This conference provides an invaluable opportunity for sharing among colleagues, and a perfect environment for encouragement, networking and growing in best practices.

  • The Dr Peter Craigie Award is presented to an individual or organization that has contributed to the professional growth of RMEC members.
  • Awards of Merit recognize exemplary teaching, leadership and/or service in the field of religious and moral education. Winners of this award demonstrate (four award categories) the values of Faith, Dignity, Respect and/or Collaboration.
