10 facts students in an anglican school should know

 

J$300              US$5:00

 10 Facts Students in an Anglican School Should Know                                                             The Anglican Church has played a significant role in the education of Jamaicans. Education for our Church is much more than providing the physical resources for the teaching and learning environment. We also focus on religion and morality. Religion, so that our youth will understand that, ultimately, we are accountable to God for the life we lead. Morality, so that we can help to instil the respect for law and order that is vital for the continued existence of a society in which we can all live in peace and harmony. This book seeks to demonstrate how we can achieve this goal through the values, customs and lifestyle we practice as Christians.
