Year 10 RS visit to Leicester Central Mosque Year 10 RS visit to Leicester Central Mosque

Year 10 GCSE RS students recently had the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of the St Philip's Interfaith Centre in Leicester. They were given an extremely informative guided tour of the Leicester Central Mosque by the very knowledgeable Parvez, before taking part in a thorough and wide-ranging Q&A session with faith representatives Sumaiya and Riaz. Issues under discussion ranged from the wearing of hijab to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, and included just about everything inbetween! The students were attentive listeners and careful observers: the visit will undoubtedly enhance their understanding of the faith and of the GCSE course.
