Ground-breaking Interfaith Tent at JCoSS

The Interfaith tent grew out of a chance comment from a student which raised concerns about tolerance and understanding within our community. We started to work with a Muslim educator to develop sessions for students about understanding Islam.  These sessions were so positive that we were able to secure funding for a wider programme which has developed to include students and facilitators from a wide range of faith schools and organisations. We have called it ‘Interfaith Fortnight’ and all our KS3 students will have an encounter with one or more people from a different faith during the fortnight.  We have welcomed guests from Ayesha Muslim Community school, St Michael’s School, St Andrew the Apostle’s School (Greek Orthodox), King Solomon School, Unity Muslim School, Eden Girls Muslim school, The Council for Christians and Jews, Rabbi Natan Levy, St Ethelburga’s Centre , The 3 Faiths Forum and more.  Activities have included graffiti art, storytelling, creative writing, arts and crafts, drama, and panels with faith leaders from across the community and from within our own school community.
