Special guests join Horton Grange Primary pupils for Interfaith Fortnight

Horton Grange Primary Punjabi Roots

A Bradford school is raising awareness about peace and tolerance with the help of the Punjabi Roots Academy.

The creative arts training provider, who featured on BBC3’s Bollywood Carmen TV show, performed and led workshops with Horton Grange Primary School pupils on Monday.

Workshops were held as part of the ‘Interfaith Fortnight’ initiative aimed to promote understanding between people of different cultures and beliefs.

Over the period of two weeks, a variety of workshops, performances and lessons that address diversity and tolerance will take place.

Schoolteacher and RE coordinator at the school, Niela Ahmed, said: “Over the next fortnight, we’ll be raising awareness about anti-racism, bringing the community together and learning about other cultures and faiths.

“Every year group has a focus religion, so we’ll be learning throughout the school.”

Horton Grange Primary School was the first school in Bradford to be bestowed the ‘City of Sanctuary’ award which recognises efforts made on raising awareness of equalities, tolerance and anti-racism.
