Tolerance sets a precedent in school
In 2006 the project ‘Tolerance sets a precedent in school’ was initiated as a supporting measure for ‘Musica Sacra International’. The core of the project is to educate children and young people about the five major world religions, as well as to convey a sensitivity and respect for other cultures.
In today’s world, breaking down prejudice and facing the alleged unknown is more and more important. Children and young people in particular need a good basis of knowledge in times of globalisation, in order to understand and find a place for their own culture and religion.
The educational project ‘Tolerance sets a precedent in school’ aims to make a contribution towards helping children to find their way in the world and to enable them to become responsible citizens of this world.
What do you believe in? - Reading series for pre-schoolers and children from grades 1 & 2
Books will be read and looked at together with the children, similarities and differences within religions and cultures will be discovered and their own experiences and what has been read will be talked about. This will then be worked through creatively in form of drawings and craft activities. There will be readings on the religions Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism, which will each be looked at in relation to Christianity. The reading series will take place between March and May 2020 in cooperation with the public library in Marktoberdorf.
Conception and direction of the readings: Katrin Pflüger, Dipl. Religion teacher
Singing game for primary school children: Abraham’s Children
Singing together and listening to each other shapes both children and adults and is particularly for younger children great fun. The singing game “Abraham’s Children” will be rehearsed together with the after school centres and primary schools St. Martin and Thalhofen in Marktoberdorf. The singing game is about nine children, who belong to the three religions Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
Different groups of children will sing and make music together, play and create the stage design. Around 60 children will thereby explore and concern themselves with the topic intensively over a period of six months.
Religion, Music and Art teachers will support the project.
Conductor, choir: Eva Rüth, Johannes Schneider
Conductor, band: Stefan Beranek
Theatre and stage design: Stefan Grassmann
The Jewish Museum Berlin on tour
As part of „tolerance starts at school“ Musica Sacra International offers an exhibition of the Jewish Museum Berlin at schools in the Allgäu. The on tour bus is an educational initiative of the Jewish Museum Berlin. It aims at pupils of the grades 8-13. For one school day the pupils will concern themselves with the Jewish religion, culture and history. The pupils will independently and interactively research the contents. A dialogue will be established with the educationally skilled/trained on.tour lecturers, in which the pupils’ lives and attitudes play a role as well. The team of the Jewish Museum will be visiting for one week in October 2020.
Registration is necessary.
