Celebrating RE – St Augustine's CE Primary School visit

Two groups of 30 children from St Augustine''s CE Primary School came to visit the Islamic Centre of England in Thursday 17th of March at different times. Both groups attended the exhibition on Celebrating RE (religious education) at Centre that run for two weeks. Children accompanied by their teachers were introduced to some basic feature of a Mosque and Islamic religious practices.

The children had already some background knowledge of Islam and the visit gave them an opportunity to familiarize themselves with some of the things they had learned in the classroom.

The desk of a Persian/Iranian calligrapher at the exhibition was, at one point, surrounded by the children eager to see how skilfully he was writing in beautiful Persian calligraphy.
Some of the children had their names written in calligraphy.
