Year 8 is embarking on a World Religions Unit in Individuals and Societies. As a way to experience a range of religions, develop inquiry questions for the rest of the unit and learn from experts first hand, the students went on a walking tour discovering places of worship in the Sathorn and Silom area.
Students were lucky enough to be welcomed as guests in churches, mosques, cathedrals, as well as Buddhist, Tao, Hindu and Jain temples, with some sites like Wat Prok containing numerous religions in the one location.
It was an eye opening experience for all involved, which allowed us to broaden our understanding and, as a result, develop a more open minded approach to the world. This is just one of the many examples of highly authentic, innovative learning experiences our students at NIST have the opportunity to be involved in.
