A RUN­CORN high school has hosted a se­ries of lessons for pri­mary pupils for an in­ter­faith week.

Or­mis­ton Bol­ing­broke Academy (OBA) wel­comed the Mur­dishaw West young­sters for lessons held in the his­tory and RE de­part­ment.

Ses­sions cov­ered a range of world re­li­gions.

Pupils aged four to 11 years old are en­thu­si­as­ti­cally throw­ing them­selves into the lessons, per­form­ing the sto­ries of key Jewish fig­ures to learn­ing about the 10 gu­rus who founded Sikhism.

An OBA spokes­woman said the project’s aim is to deepen the pupils re­spect and un­der­stand­ing of tra­di­tions found in the UK and world, and to show the pupils ‘how in­ter­con­nected the reli­gious tra­di­tions are with their own lives’.

Sean McGlory, OBA head of RE and his­tory, said: “OBA teach­ers are en­joy­ing de­liv­er­ing it to pupils and the pupils have loved their lessons.

“All in all, it is shap­ing up to be a re­ally suc­cess­ful in­ter­faith week.”
