Schools and Visits – Week Commencing 18th January 2016

A very busy week at the Open Centre with almost 300 visitors this week!!!

Highfields Secondary School visited over three days with nearly 200 students in year 7, learning about Sikhism and Islam.

Sophie Collis – Teacher Commented

“Excellent, informative talks pitched at the correct level. The students get a real sense of both religions which is evident in their learning back in the classroom.”

Crich Junior School are into their second week of their faith event by hiring our Mobile Exhibition.

Borrow Wood Junior School enjoyed a Sikhism assembly on Monday whilst Chancel Primary School had theirs on Tuesday.

Ladycross Infant School visited the Hindu Temple with 57 children from year 2. Their teacher commented on how ‘interactive’ the session was.

On Thursday we had students from Buxton Leek College visit the Hindu Temple, Mosque and Sikh Gurdwara and finished their visit with a tour of the interesting shops on Normanton Road.

16 children also travelled with their teachers from Cromford Primary School to learn about Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism.

We hope next week is going to be just as exciting as this week.
