Hinduism, Islam and Judaism were just some of the religions celebrated by an Abbots Langley school last week.

Youngsters at Divine Saviour School in Abbots Langley learnt about various religions and cultures as part of their world-faith week.

On Tuesday year six pupils visited the Bhaktivedanta Manor Temple in Hilfield Lane, in Aldenham, where they discovered more about Hindu stories, greetings and customs and gods.

Headteacher Philip Gibbs said: “As a Catholic school it is important that the children gain a good understanding of other faiths and cultures in order to take their place in modern society.

“Last month year four visited the Sikh Gurdwara in Watford, while other classes had guest speakers from other world faiths.

“The children really enjoyed learning about all aspects of the Hindu faith, in a fun and interesting way."

The Broomfield Rise school introduced the multi-faith week last year as part of the curriculum.

Year six pupil Harry Khan said: “It was a fun day learning about the Hindu lifestyle! The best bit was the ride in the cart pulled by bulls."

Student Ciara McBeth added: "We also dressed up and used face paints; it was really interesting learning about Hindu traditional costume and make up."
