YEAR 11 students Omar Mussa and Jonathan Reeves (pictured) were part of a recent cultural and religious diversity roundtable discussion at Overnewton College. 

Jewish, Muslim and Christian students from across Melbourne met last Wednesday to engage with each other and dispel myths and inaccuracies about their religions. 

Also involved were state and federal police, MPs, rabbis, priests and imams. 

Overnewton’s senior chaplain, Reverend Kim Cruickshank, said: “The roundtable discussions are a great way to bring together students from diverse backgrounds, who otherwise may never meet, and bring them together in conversation.”
