This afternoon I attended the Official Opening of the Multi-Faith Centre at Allerton High School...

It has been an incredible year for Elaine Silson and her wonderful team at Allerton High School and today, sportsman, television commentator and ballroom dancer, Colin Jackson CBE opened the long awaited Multi-Faith Centre

However, the highlight as always was the young people who shared their ideas about faith, religious belief and the new Multi-Faith Centre. The children talked, read, prayed and danced to illustrate and communicate their faiths from Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and Sikhism. It was a wonderful celebration of the religious beliefs here in Leeds.

It may have taken a long time to arrive but the Multi-Faith Centre at Allerton High School with its very special compass laid into the floor was certainly worth waiting for.
