IT'S WITH a warm heart in this festive season that we hear of plans to promote peace in the tiny but troubled Balkan country of Montenegro - thanks to a Nottinghamshire school.

The only state to stick with Serbia in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia plans to introduce religious education to promote better understanding between the children of its ethnic groups, after seeing RE at work in West Bridgford Comprehensive.

According to Notts county council, he was bowled over by the authority's RE model, by which several religions are studied and compared. Others in the delegation turned up the chance to sit in on an English lesson to watch RE in action instead.

County education chair Mick Storey is cock-a-hoop at this unexpected export. "It's the best possible endorsement," he says.
