Visiting Speakers Share Insights Into Faith
The Upper Sixth welcomed four visiting speakers on Thursday 20 January for an Interfaith Forum. The event was organised by Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Rod Isaacs and provided the students with a chance to hear from representatives from the Humanist, Sikh, Muslim and Christian faiths.
Ghulam Vohra, Chairperson of the Coventry Muslim Forum, Marcia Watson, representing the Offchurch Group of Churches, Jane Sault from the Humanist Association and Jatinder S Birdi, representing the Gurdwara Sahib of Leamington and Warwick, also Chair of Warwick District Faiths Forum and Trustee of the Princethorpe Foundation, spoke to the students in turn, sharing an understanding of their faith, answering questions and providing insights into their beliefs and their thoughts on the importance of faith in society today. The Upper Sixth had the opportunity to appreciate the different faiths, to consider how many similarities there are between them and how through mutual understanding and co-operation we can all work with and respect each other in our communities.
Our thanks go to our visitors for providing such an engaging and thought-provoking session.
