Pupil Takes Part in Act of Remembrance

Year 9 pupil Halimah Natha was chosen by Bolton’s Faith Leaders Forum to speak at the vigil held on Saturday 23rd March to remember the tragic events in New Zealand the week before. Hundreds of people of all faiths and none gathered to show sympathy and support to those affected by the Christchurch mosque shootings, and in particular to honour the 50 people who were killed.

Halimah was introduced by Canon Chris Bracegirdle, chairman of the forum. As part of the vigil, the names of the victims were read out as candles were lit for each of them, and there was a minute’s silence.

Halimah’s proud family reported that she did very well speaking at the vigil and also had chance to meet the Mayor of Bolton.
