Gurdwara Trip

As part of our RE curriculum, we have been learning about Sikhism. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend some time in the Gurdwara in Kingston. We were welcomed on our arrival and were introduced to the customs when entering the room where the Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh holy book) is kept. A member of the Sikh community gave us a brief talk and answered questions from the children.

We were allowed to view the holy book while a Sikh gentleman was reading from it. The children were well behaved and respectful, showing appreciation of Sikh values.
