Visit from U3A Exploring World Faiths: Dr. Peter Rookes & Mrs Jean Rookes  & Team | 10th November 2015

We were visited by a delegation of ten members from different faith backgrounds, who came to ‘explore world faiths.’ Our visitors spent some time in every class, talking to our children, took part in a short assembly where there was a fruitful discussion about different faiths and the children were given opportunities to express their faith through poems, nasheeds, stories and own accounts.

The visitors also observed the afternoon prayer, with an explanation of what was being recited at hand. The day concluded with a chat with the Headteacher.

The visitors commented:

“Your children are so well behaved and very courteous”

“We have been so well looked after and the school council have been absolutely amazing in answering our questions, your children are very confident”

Our children learned about different faiths and what we have in common in exploring human values and how we can all work together.

pupils are required to represent themselves as role models of their faith, showing courtesy,

understanding and being welcoming to each other and visitors."
