People of Faiths united

The diversity of our area enriches our lives and outlooks. Today in their assemblies the children of St Chrysostom’s School found out more about the faith diversity of the school and area.

Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Jewish people joining in prayerWe discovered that there are people from Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist faiths in the school. We learned how we can learn from one another and value one another.

At the end of each assembly members of each different faith group held a ribbon and prayed separately that we may love our variety, and enjoy discovering more about one another’s faith practice and outlook. The prayer ribbons have been tied to the St Chrysostom’s Church prayer tree, as a sign of cooperation and prayer among world faiths of our area.

Quotes from two children:

Anish – I have friends from all different faiths and so I learn about different religions and cultures.

Ahmed-  It feels like a happy school because I get to learn about different religions and how different people live.  It makes an exciting school.

    We are very proud of our multi-faith school. It is wonderful that we can have the opportunity to learn about all the faiths in our community and by doing so this ensures that we respect each other’s cultures and practices. Our children are a wealth of knowledge and take great interest in each other’s faiths.
