School Visits

"We learnt about the Bahá’í Faith through an assembly and a lesson delivered to our students. We found it informative, insightful, and very interesting to learn more about a religious faith that is not currently studied in Religious Education. The speakers were very passionate about their beliefs and this helped to convey its value and impact of faith to the lives of religious believers. We will definitely be inviting the speakers back next year and would thoroughly recommend this opportunity to other schools."

- Claire Dyer, Head of RE, Staindrop School

If your school would like a visit from a local Bahá'í please contact us to hear what we could offer.

We are often fortunate to have oversees students studying at Durham University who can also share varied and diverse experiences of their cultures. There is no charge for visits to schools and due to Covid-19, we could also possibly undertake this on-line.

Bahá'ís are asked where possible to not work on Bahá'í Holy Days and these can often be good days to plan visits to schools. The dates for Bahá'í Holy Days for 2021 are as follows:

20th March

20th April

28th April

1st May

23rd May

28th May

9th July

6th November

7th November

We can talk about any area of our Faith or relate the Bahá'í teachings to current social issues, and these can be through school assemblies, classroom discussions or (subject to local resources) a regular study group.

Please email us for more information with as much notice as possible.
