Year 10s Visit Islamic Cultural Centre

As part of their course in GCSE Religious Studies, on Wednesday 26th January, a number of Year 10 students were involved in a educational visit to the Islamic Cultural Centre in Liverpool.

The students had the opportunity to experience a Muslim place of worship first hand, a very impressive building that we were told housed up to three thousand worshippers during Friday prayers.

The students were given a valuable insight into Muslim traditions, beliefs and practises by the imam (community leader) and even took part in some role-plays that illustrated a number of key Islamic beliefs, including some of the reasons why men and women worship separately.

After a superb session of question and answers the students were invited to witness midday prayers before travelling to the Amantola restaurant to sample some traditional eastern cuisine!
