Pupils get insight into beliefs from around the world

Leamington Editorial 4th Oct, 2019   0

A FAITH festival saw pupils at Radford Semele Primary School learn all about the different beliefs of people around the world.

St Philip’s Centre, a charity which runs inter faith activities, brought volunteers from different communities to the school to teach pupils about different faiths including Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism.

The day allowed pupils and staff the chance to dress up in clothing associated with different faiths and cultures, sample food and listen to music among other activities.

Pupils also signed a giant card highlighting the importance of inter faith relations and the need for respect, acceptance and understanding in society.




Riaz Ravat, deputy director of St Philip’s Centre, said: “We were delighted to visit Radford Semele Primary School.

“Symbolically our Religion & Belief Roadshow shows pupils that people of different faiths and beliefs can work together to help build peace and respect.”
