Form III Religious Studies Trip

March 11th, 2016

Every year all of Form III have the opportunity to visit a mosque and a synagogue before completing a project on prejudice and discrimination. This year after spending time in lessons looking at examples of Islamophobic attitudes and the rise of Anti-Semitism, we were fortunate enough to visit Dar Ul Isra Mosque in Cathays Cardiff and the Cardiff United Synagogue in Cyncoed. The mosque provided a very hands on experience where the boys were able to have a go at writing their names in Arabic and listening to the Quran being read in Arabic then English on mp3 players. At the synagogue, the Rabbi gave the boys a clear understanding of what it meant to be Jewish and what life was like for a C21st Jew living in Wales. It was an incredibly valuable experience and trips to places of worship remain an important part of the RS curriculum.
