Between 25th and 27th of September, Year 7 students travelled to Wolverhampton with Mr Phillips, Miss Sexton, Miss Williams, Mrs Peach and Miss Masters to visit different Holy Buildings and learn about various religions.
Students visited a Mosque, a Hindu Temple and a Gurdwara, where they received talks from leaders and teachers and also sampled some Indian sweets!
Students used this valuable opportunity to explore the buildings and discover the varied forms of worship, the colourful Hindu Gods, Meditation, Langar, Holy Pudding, the 5 K’s of Sikhism and which way Mecca is!
All students were impeccably behaved and extremely respectful, making their teachers incredibly proud! Well done year 7!
