Archbishop meets with pupils of multi faiths
Tuesday 17th November 2009As part of Inter Faith Week, the Archbishop visited the London Inter Faith Centre, to meet with school pupils. The event brought together a range of mainly independent secondary schools in West London from different faiths.
The schools were:
• Guru Nanak Sikh Voluntary Aided Secondary School
• The Swaminarayan School
• Al-Sadiq School for Boys & Al-Zahra School for Girls
• Islamia Girls School
• Jewish Free School
• Hasmonean High School for Boys & Hasmonean High School for Girls
• Bishop Ramsey Church of England School
• St Gregory`s Kenton
• The Douay Martyrs RC Secondary School
• St Benedict's Senior School
• Brondesbury College for Boys Secondary School
The theme of the event was "Faithful Nurture" and the broad issues that were put to the schools were:
· How has your school encouraged us through the development and practice of our religious faith to interact with our fellow human beings?
· How do we understand the development and practice of our particular faith to help us to relate to those of other faiths?
A student representative from each school made four minute presentations on the overall theme, to which the Archbishop responded.
