The children of Alne Primary School took part in their second Interfaith Week. An assembly was held on the Monday to introduce the event and each class was assigned one of the major world religions to study. Throughout the week the children learnt about religious symbols, festivals, places of worship and practices. As part of Interfaith Week Years 1 to 6 visited the Shree Laxmi Naryan Mandir in Bradford, where they were lucky enough to be shown around the whole temple and welcomed to stay and watch prayer time. Afterwards there was a trip to the Bombay Stores, the UK’s largest Asian Department Store. On Friday a whole school sharing assembly took place, with the children displaying artwork, Bhangra dancing, research, photographs of a church visit and much more. Many of the children were inspired to carry on working at home and this was also shared with the school. To celebrate the end each child made a symbol of peace to be hung on the whole school Peace Tree. Throughout the week the children displayed immense respect and understanding for different cultures and really worked hard to make Alne Primary School’s Interfaith Week a huge success.
