We took a food donation box to the Gurdwara as a 'thank you' gesture. We were told that all ingredients would go in to making the next meal there.

Year 5 Sikh Gurdwara visit

Year 5 Sikh Gurdwara visit

Well done Year 5 for excellent behaviour and enthusiasm for learning, while exploring the Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Smethwick. Not only did you ask and answer some thoughtful questions, but you also developed your understanding of what it means to be part of the Sikh community. We had a tour of the building and got the chance to try Langar- the free, vegetarian meal given to anyone who comes to the Gurdwara. What a lovely welcome we had.

Parents, thank you for your kind food donations. Our tour guide was very appreciative and spoke highly of your children, their lovely manners and their thirst for learning.

Your teachers are very proud of you all.
