Y13 girls into the Community
Two girls in Year 13 visited Fleckney Primary School in October to talk about their faith, Islam. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as did the Y1 and Y6 children they spoke to.
The girls tell the story of their experience in their own words below. What they haven't said is how poised and professional they were. They were a credit to the School, and most importantly, themselves. Thank you girls.
It was a privilege for us to be warmly welcomed by the staff and pupils of Fleckney Primary School. We took great pride in teaching the Year 1 and 6 pupils about different aspects of Islam and giving them an insight into the daily life of a Muslim, reinforcing their current religious studies. We covered a variety of topics, ranging from the 5 basic principles of Islam to its effect on our lifestyle. The students were incredibly inquisitive and confidently participated in the interactive session. It was a great pleasure to answer their numerous questions and we hope to have enriched their knowledge of Islam. We are grateful to the staff at Fleckney Primary School for giving us the opportunity to strengthen our communication and interpersonal skills, which are vital in development as confident young women. This experience has proven highly beneficial to us, as we are keen to inform young students on such a fast growing and largely followed religion in our society. We look forward to more opportunities like this in the future.
