Bahá’ís all over the world are preparing to commemorate 200 years since the birth of the faith’s Prophet Founder, Bahá’u’lláh, in 1817.
The celebration will take place in October 2017. Schools across the UK will have the opportunity to invite visitors from the local Bahá’í community to present assemblies and classroom sessions about Bahá’u’lláh, his life and teachings. We also hope that teachers and pupils will feel inspired to research the background to this exciting event, and carry out extension activities.
If you are already in contact with local Bahá’ís, they will be delighted to come into your school. Or you can fill in your school’s details on the School Visitors page and we will put you in touch.
Resources available so far include:
- an assembly on the core concept of ‘unity’ for KS1 and KS2
- a lesson based around the life of Bahá’u’lláh for KS2 and KS3
We will update this page as new materials come online, so please check regularly.
