You may have seen our post earlier this month regarding the exciting Inter Faith Week Question Time Project and our request for local community members to form part of a panel. We were absolutely delighted to have an incredibly overwhelming response with twelve representatives across a range of religions agreeing to join us for the project which took place across the last two days.
Both events on the 11th and 12th of November saw students from Year 10 and 11 ask a range of mature, respectful, thoughtful and interesting questions which clearly impressed our panel. The event was certainly very thought provoking and provided a different learning experience for our young people. Importantly it also allowed our students to use their questioning skills to develop and extend their learning from the classroom as well as highlighting the key aims of Inter Faith Week – increasing awareness, strengthening relations and increasing understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along to support this event. Projects of this type really couldn’t happen without the amazing support of our local community.
Please look out for the full article which will feature in the Grange Gazette later this term alongside some further photographs from the event.
