A key aim of education is to recognise, value and promote a positive attitude to differences, foster tolerance and develop cultural competence.
This book is designed to help by giving background information to the faiths and celebrations in our multicultural society. It looks at the beliefs and core practices of the main faiths and describes the festivals associated with them. It explains the origins of the festivals and how they are celebrated within the faith communities, and includes suggestions on how to explore them in a way that is meaningful to young children.
