Children in Years 3, 4 and 5 explored the 5 Pillars of Islam as part of our theme of religious diversity during our ‘Diversity Week’.  Leading the discussion was Dr Muhammad Raza who explained the 5 pillars: faith, prayer, charity, fasting and pilgrimage.  Children were interested to learn that Muslims pray 5 times every day and, equally, to discover the reasons for fasting during the month of Ramadan.  Pictures of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca really brought the devotion that many Muslims bring to their faith to life for the children too.  We were very grateful to Dr Raza for sharing his experiences and knowledge with us.
