Story: Holly Law, St Catherine’s School Council Secretary

On Wednesday St Catherine’s School held a Pupil Living Library to celebrate Interfaith Week. The idea for our Living Library was that pupils act as ‘living books’ and visitors could come and talk to the books to find out about their lives and experiences.

Our ‘books’ were pupils from our school and Fir Vale who were from different faiths. They talked about their faith and what it means to them.

All the children had produced leaflets which explained important things about their faith. The event was a great success and lots of people came to speak to our ‘books’. They were able to ask questions about different faiths and it was a great opportunity to ask something you have always wanted to know about the Muslim, Christian and Sikh faiths.

We think it was an important event as it encourages people in our community to have a better understanding of different faiths.One of our ‘books’ Isbah Aslam in Year 4 said,

“I really enjoyed being part of the Living Library. I got asked lots of questions and I got to ask lots of questions too.”
