Exploring Islam

Students in Year 8 have been enjoying exploring the religion of Islam. As a part of their studies they explored the five pillars in a practical way by looking at a range of religious artefacts and interest boards.


The students worked well in small groups and shared with each other their new learning about how Muslim’s practise their faith.


Student comments:

“I learnt about Zakat and the importance of giving to charity”

“There are 5 pillars of Islam, these are the foundation of a Muslim life”

“I enjoyed the exhibition, the boards were interesting and I liked finding out things with my friends”
