SCHOOL VISITS

Discover Islam offers a structured bespoke Religious Education service that caters for the needs of all primary and secondary schools or even a College.

We have produced not only literature but full-length animation detailing the basic tenants of Islam, ‘The Five Pillar ‘ as well as ‘The Prophets’ in Islam. Each animation is shown as a presentation and demonstrations are given on how a Muslim prays.

The pupils are allowed to interact through Question and Answers sessions which normally comes at the end but this can be facilitated to each school need. The experience of Discover Islam visiting schools is a direct way of learning and can help the children learn about other faiths in a more interacted and fun way.

Frequently Asked Questions

1How are donations to Discover Islam spent?

At Discover Islam UK, we work hard to ensure that every penny is spent in the most effective way possible because we are accountable to our donors, to people in need all around the world, and most importantly, we are accountable to Allah (SWT). You can ask for our financial reports for details, but here is the breakdown:

85% goes directly to projects & services.

11% is invested in fundraising.

4% is spent on administrative work.

2Can I donate items like clothing, household items etc?

Clothes and other household items are among the many items we sell in our charity shop to raise funds, however, if they are in good condition. It is much easier to buy the items we need in order to run our distinctive projects & services with the money our supporters donate. It reduces the cost to Discover Islam.

3What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid increases the value of donations to charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) by allowing them to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. If you pay higher rate tax you can claim extra relief on your donations. If you claim age-related allowances or tax credits, Gift Aid donations can sometimes increase your entitlement.I know that doesn’t give you any ways to improve, but I really think it was a very well organised visit.

4How does Gift Aid work?

The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities or CASCs take your donation – which is money you’ve already paid tax on – and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its ‘gross’ equivalent – the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.

The basic rate tax is 20 percent, so this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to the charity. For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the charity or CASC will also get a separate government supplement of three pence on every pound you give. Find out more on the HMRC website.

Year 5 found your visit very interesting and really enjoyed finding out how to write their names in Arabic.

3Daniel Ryan - NET Academies Trust - Buckinghamshire

Personally, myself the other teachers and the pupils really enjoyed the morning and many children commented on the way back just how much they learned. Even the parents who came with us said that their eyes had been opened as they learned things about Islam that they didn’t know before.
I know that doesn’t give you any ways to improve, but I really think it was a very well organised visit.

MOSQUE TOURS

The experience of visiting a mosque can help children greatly to learn more about the Islamic faith. Schools plan visits as part of their Religious Education curriculum and academics visit for historical and research purposes. Over the years, we have managed to arrange hundreds of mosque tours.

School visits take approximately 60 – 90 mins depending on the number of pupils and the primary purpose of the visit however we provide bespoke service which suits the best to your needs. The visit normally starts with a tour of the facility, a brief introduction of the Islamic Faith followed by a ‘Question & Answer’ session (if required). Also, we show children Discover Islam cartoons about the Basics of Islam, The Prophets in Islam and more.

“Feedback has been great, all of the schools recommend us to others.”
