Y8 Visit a Sikh Temple!

This month, our Year 8 students visited the Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Sikh Temple in Sheffield, as part of our entitlement curriculum. The Religious Education department believes that experiences such as visits to places of worship, and talks from visiting speakers provide students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of different beliefs beyond what we learn about in the classroom. A few students wrote about the day:
 
When we arrived at the gurdwara (Sikh holy building), we took off our shoes and put head coverings on, we learned Sikhs do this as a sign of respect. Inside the prayer hall we saw a man reading the Guru Granth Sahib (the Sikh holy book). We learned how important the holy book is for Sikhs and therefore how they treat it, and we saw the resting place where it is stored at night. We learned about the services that happen at the gurdwara and the good deeds that Sikhs do within the local community. On Sunday’s they give out free food and anyone is welcome, this selfless service is a key practice within the religion.
 
We really enjoyed exploring a place that we wouldn’t normally experience in our own day to day lives and seeing other people’s way of life. We think it’s important to go on these trips to develop our understanding of different religions.

The RE department would like to extend our thanks to the gurdwara for allowing us to visit and answering students questions.  We would also like to say well done to the students who attended the visit, they did Thrybergh proud in the way they conducted themselves!
