This new website – Bahá’í RE for Schools – aims to provide good quality and engaging materials to help teachers of RE explore the Bahá’í Faith with pupils across the primary and secondary age ranges. The site provides basic information as well as freely downloadable presentations, lesson plans and schemes, ideas for activities, and links to other online resources.
What do we offer to schools?
Bahá’ís believe passionately in the importance of good religious education in schools and colleges. The aim of this website is to provide good quality and engaging materials for teachers to use in schools in RE or related lessons, as well as in assemblies.
On this website you will find a wealth of materials to enhance your teaching. All materials may be downloaded and freely copied, with acknowledgements as appropriate. There are also links to inexpensive books and other printed materials, which may be purchased.
Members of local Bahá’í communities are often happy to be invited to come into a school to assist you in any way that you, as a teacher, consider beneficial, for example by talking to pupils, leading an assembly or taking a lesson. If you do not already know any local Bahá’ís, please use the contact form on the School Visitors page so that we can put you in touch.
