1) 45 minute talk at a grammar school in Kent (13th Oct)

A Grammar school based in Kent is organising a RE sixth form conference day for approximately 200 17-18 year old students on October 13th  2011 in Ashford, Kent.The theme for the day is ‘The Smile Campaign’ to encourage students to do something positive for the community and to make others smile. The format for the day will involve inspirational speakers in the morning talking about helping the community and bringing happiness to others. In the afternoon students will reflect upon the mornings sessions and each participate in a practical activity to promote happiness.

The organisers would like students to develop an understanding of the focus within Sikhism of helping the community and sewa and to be inspired by the golden rule. It would be preferable if personal stories of Sikhs helping the wider community could be included.

The organisers are looking for one Sikh speaker and there will also be a Christian speaker there on the day. The conference begins at 9am and this section of it concludes at 12pm when they will go off and help others in the community in order to promote happiness. The speaker will need to talk for 45 minutes and they will also be concluding with a question and answer session.
