Year 8 Pupils at Les Beaucamp High School in Guernsey were asked to explain to their parents “how becoming a pupil has changed your life [and] how much you love your family and hope they can accept your choice”.
Teacher Amber Stables told pupils: “Focus: How would it make you feel having to tell your parents this? How would/could they react?
Ms Stables added a disclaimer that the homework is a piece of creative writing and fictional.
She said: “YOU ARE NOT ACTUALLY CONVERTING TO ISLAM.
“It is purely to test your knowledge of what we have learnt this year and how well you can argue objectively!!!!”
The pupils were asked to explain how they might feel about converting to Islam
Pupils at Les Beaucamp High School on the idyllic island of Guernsey were set the homework
Just a month later pupils in Minnesota were told to sing a song about Ramadan at a Christmas concert.
A county in Virginia was also forced to close all its schools amid growing fury after students were told to write the shahada, an Islamic declaration of faith, in Arabic calligraphy.
