All religions are important and none should be discriminated against – that was the message of an RE exhibition being staged at Great Yarmouth Minster until Monday.
Twelve Norfolk schools in the East Coast Religious Education (ECRE) cluster group have been inspired by a 'People of Faith' theme, coming up with displays that focus variously on individual figures, the qualities needed, and vegetarian food synonymous with Sikhism.
For St Nicholas Priory Primary School teacher Romy Simons it was an opportunity to share what they had learned with other schools and the wider community, making faith more relevant to the children.
The event, opened by the Bishop of Thetford, the Rt Rev Alan Winton, sees displays about Edith Cavell and Buddha among other people of faith.
Mrs Simons said that it followed a similar event last year on a theme of light and since then two more schools had come on board. She said each school had thought hard about the theme and come up with a different interpretation, some using poetry, posters, crafted objects, food, and photographs to explain the importance of people of faith.

She added: 'It is about making it relevant and trying to get it out into the community where members of the public can enjoy it too. Also it's getting the message across that it is important and viable and every religion is important and should not be discriminated against.'
Schools that took part were Caister Junior School, St Nicholas Priory Primary School, Hopton Primary School, Ormiston Herman Academy, Peterhouse Primary Academy, Hillside Primary School, Homefield CE VC Primary School, Woodlands Primary Academy, Bawdeswell Primary, Corton Primary and Alderman Swindell Primary.
