Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

On Tuesday 24th April 2018, both lower and upper sixth RS students travelled to Leicester for their ‘Living the Faith: Hinduism’ experience day. Facilitated by the St Philip’s Interfaith Centre, students began the day by observing the daily arti worship at the Shree Sanatan Mandir, followed by a guided tour of the building led by the president of the Mandir, Ms Vibhooti Acharya. On returning to the Interfaith Centre, students were led into two discussion groups - one with Jiva, a Hindu faith practitioner living locally, the other by Dr Laura Johnson - both gave interesting insights on topics ranging from the significance of karma to the importance of Hindu iconography.

The day was full of new sights, sounds and experiences that will prove invaluable to our students in their continued study of the Hindu faith.
