advantages of a muslim in a catholic school

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by sarah_apple, Jun 12, 2011.

  1. hi i am writing my personal statement and obxiously the competition for places are only to stiff. i have the support of the school but its a catholic school. I just wanted to write a couple of sentences maybe just two or three sentences on how as a non catholic I can benefit my lead school. please anybody help.

  2. Surely you must have some ideas yourself? Diversity ... more able to spark healthy debate ... providing the children with access to other cultures.
    I wouldn't overdo it though ... you may run the risk of a) making it seem that the school is really narrow-minded as it is at the moment and/or b) your being muslim is the ONLY reason to take you on. I'd focus on the teaching and learning side of things, and just have this as an aside (and say it would be beneficial for both you and the school, ergo the pupils).
  3. I think the main one is providing the children with an insight to a different culture, although I think you should be more focussed on your personal qualities.
