Roadshow teaches pupils about faiths
Youngsters at a school have been learning about different faiths this week thanks to a visit by a charity.
Pupils from Mount Grace High School in Hinckley tried out different food, clothing and entertainment, and had conversations with faith volunteers from St Philip's Centre about the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh faiths, as part of a roadshow.
The day also had a royal theme as children were given the chance to put their name to a pledge board acknowledging the Queen's 60 years of service as being a benchmark for stronger interfaith relations.
Pupil Kirsty Allan said: "The day was amazing. Learning about the food, clothes, and culture was fantastic."
