    Trip to the Shah Jahan Mosque on Monday 20th March 2017

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    This term, as part of our RE lessons on religions within the community, Year 6 will be visiting the Shah Jahan Mosque in Woking on Monday 20th March. We will leave school by coach at approximately 9:00am and return to school by 3.00pm. The children will have an introductory talk about the features of the mosque and then have an opportunity to look around and ask any questions.

    The children will require a packed lunch. If you are in receipt of free school meals, please tick the box on the slip below if you would like school to provide a packed lunch.  As with all our visits to places of religious interest, the school will be paying all costs.

    The dress code for this visit is school uniform. There is a strict dress code at the mosque and they ask that trousers or skirts that come below the knee are worn with tights. Please make sure that children bring coats with them as we will be spending a considerable amount of time outside. Children will be asked to remove their shoes when they visit. We would also like all girls to bring a head scarf to wear as a sign of respect; a normal scarf wrapped around their head will be sufficient. They will be expected to behave quietly and respectfully as they would do when visiting any religious building. 

    Please sign and return the permission slip below as soon as possible.  If you have any questions concerning this visit, please talk to your child’s class teacher.

    Yours faithfully,

    Mrs Cashmore, Ms Barton, Miss Dawson and Mrs Johnson
