The Annual General Meeting of the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education took place last Wednesday at Medina Theatre. Before all the business side of things there was a celebration of RE by Island schools. Summerfields Primary School performed some Caribean songs and music, Ryde High School showed a powerpoint and displayed pupils work and some year five pupils from Nodehill performed a play about Muhammad's life. Year 5 have been learning about Islam this term and they have not only been able to retell the story of Muhammad but they have looked at why he is important to Muslims today and the importance of the various events to Muslims.
R.E. work from each year group was also on display and received many positive comments. Year 7 work on Christianity and Year 8 work on 'Respect' was considered very high standard.
I would like to thank all pupils who took part, whether in the play or their display work. I was very proud of you all.
