Week commencing the 13th November 2017 was 'Inter Faith Week' in Wanborough Primary School.
The focus on the week was to learn about the importance of diversity. Inter Faith Week is an opportunity to bring people with different beliefs closer together. It is a chance to learn about one another and build positive relationships.
Within society, people don't always get along, and sometimes people forget that it is other people's differences that make them unique and special. It is diversity that makes our world more interesting.
