It’s ‘a good few years’ since West Berkshire Bahá’í Shawn Khorassani went to school himself.
But he didn’t let that get in the way when he was asked to be guest speaker at St Gabriel’s Independent Day School for Girls, Newbury.
Shawn put his best foot forward and gave a talk about the Bahá’í Faith to a class of 17 ‘Year 5’ pupils at St Gabriel’s.
He said: “It was the first time I had been to St Gabriel’s to talk about the Bahá’í Faith, and I really enjoyed it. I was asked to talk about the Bahá’í holy days. It was a fantastic class – the pupils showed real knowledge and lots of interest. The interactivity of the whole lesson was wonderful.
“Education is an important aspect of life for Bahá’ís, so it was especially good to be invited to St Gabriel’s School.”
