CURRICULUM ENHANCEMENT FOR SCHOOLS

The East of England Region has been for some time a multicultural, multi-faith society and its diversity continues to be enhanced by the arrival of Refugees and Asylum Seekers from all around the world.

Our community has people who are Baha'is, Buddhists, Christians, Humanists, Hindus, Jains, Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Sikhs, Taoists and Zoroastrians.  These groups are not homogenous; and may include a range of different religious and cultural traditions

VISITORS

EEFA has a register of people from the faith communities who are experienced speakers.  Each visitor is a practising member of his/her faith and is comfortable speaking about their faith and describing what it is like to live it out in modern multicultural / multi-faith England.  We can arrange for one or more of these visitors to visit your school to lead an assembly or to speak about their faith.  We can arrange for visitors from different faiths to take assemblies together.

We can also arrange for a team of visitors to run a day-long themed workshop.  We send teams into schools to lead workshops on Rites of Passage, Marriage, Work, Money, Death, and Sex.  One of our workshops, 'Breaking Barriers'; challenges stereotypes and preconceptions and can include speakers on Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, refugees and asylum seekers and the travelling community.  We are always happy to work with schools in planning special days on faith /culture / lifestyle topics.

VISITS TO PLACES OF WORSHIP

We can arrange guided visits to places of worship in Ipswich Norwich, Cambridge and Colchester or further afield.

Please Note:

Places of worship prefer not to take parties of more than 30 students at a time.  We can arrange consecutive visits to take place for larger parties.

Ipswich Bond Street Mosque prefers visits to be timed to start at 1:00pm in order that visitors might experience a Muslim Community at prayer.
