Thought of the week.png

As you may already know, this week we are celebrating World Religion Day as a school. The aim of World Religion Day, held on the third Sunday in January every year, is to promote inter-faith understanding and harmony. Through a variety of events held around the globe, followers of every religion are encouraged to acknowledge the similarities that different faiths have. As we are situated in a town with such cultural diversity, World Religion Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the different faith represented within our school and our own lives.

 

 

 

Challenge of the week.pngIn a school environment, the likelihood of us crossing paths with someone of a different faith is quite high. Why not take time this week to stop and find out something you perhaps didn’t know about that faith? Could you do anything more within your life to encourage someone else’s faith? Whilst many of us don’t necessarily follow a specific religion, I’m sure we can all appreciate that many religious values are centred around love, peace and kindness, which we can all draw upon regardless of what we BELIEVE ourselves. How can you put these values into action this week?

This week’s staff quote comes from the brilliant Amy Kirkman

“Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.”
