Interfaith Week 2019

TCS interfaith week 2019
As part of Interfaith Week we had the wonderful experience of learning about Buddhism and its rituals. In a workshop undertaken by Transition Year and Second Year students, we learned about the food, customs and dress of Buddhism. Students were invited to participate by having their faces decorated and in trying on traditional clothes and jewellery. A conch and a gong were used to good effect in trying to create as much noise as possible, in contrast to the very relaxing meditation methods demonstrated at the beginning of the workshop. Students found the workshop to be a very mind broadening experience as they opened their minds to the differing belief systems of others.
