“The Mosque trip was very interesting, and the children had many questions which were all answered well by our guide. Our Headteacher came on the trip with us and she also has another school which she wants to bring on a trip to the Mosque in the future. I understood that it was the first trip our guide had done, well what a wealth of knowledge she had, she was very informative. Thank you.”
