Dedicated prayer rooms may be part of new approach by province's schools
by Liz Monteiro
Walk through the wooden door into the secluded, carpeted room with holy books and prayer mats, and it's hard to believe you're in a school.
But this is the beginning of a new phase for public and Catholic schools where prayer rooms could become commonplace.
Under a provincewide policy, school boards must be more inclusive and accommodate different faiths during the school day.
This could mean a private place for Muslim students who pray five times a day and for students who are fasting, a modified gym class and a separate room for them so they don't have to watch their peers eat lunch.
