Year 7 Visit Sikh Gurdwara

7 Yellow and 7 Blue visited a Sikh Gurdwara (Temple) at the end of January.

They experienced first-hand the wonderful welcoming spirit and left with a greater understanding and appreciation of the Sikh faith. A faith, we were taught, that teaches us to support and respect everyone as ‘children of God’. Well done to all girls who came and represented the school so well.

 It’s not often you go on an RS trip and spend most of the time eating, but that seemed to be the case for 7 Yellow and Blue girls who visited a Sikh Gurdwara (Temple) at the end of January.

Having seen traditional Sikh worship, taken a tour of this remarkable building and listened to our volunteer guide, girls got to enjoy the sweet mixture – Kara Parshad and the delights of the langar.

The langar is a free kitchen, where all who work and contribute do so voluntarily, and all food is free. It emphasises equality – that anyone is welcome to come and eat, whatever age, gender, race or religion.
