Roger Walton, President of the Methodist Church was invited to school as part of the Believe in Shipley community event. “Believe in Shipley” is a ten-day festival, organized by churches and congregations across Shipley and Saltaire, to celebrate the impact of the Christian faith on the local area.
Roger, a former Salt Grammar School student himself, spent the day with staff and students. The first event of the day was for Roger to join our Year 8 assembly, where Roger talked to students about his work with refugees in Jordan. Shortly after Roger was taken on a tour of our school by Year 13 Religious Studies students. Roger delivered a lesson to our GCSE and A-Level RS students on the theme of Justice and Holiness. He also met for Q&A sessions with Year 7 Religious Studies classes.
The day was a huge success, our RS students were inspired by Roger and we are very thankful for his visit.
