Sycamore Class visit to the Gurdwara
The children in Sycmamore Class visit the Gurdwara to understand more about different religions that make up our community. We had a fantastic time and got to taste some of the different foods. The children learnt that places of worship can be very different and that the Gurdwara is a very special place to Sikhs.
Community Photo Competition
The children were asked to submit a photo that captured their feeling of our community. The competition was run by FoF and was judged by a local professional photographer Michelle Howell. Michelle was very honoured to be asked and said that it was an extremely hard task to do. Michelle also commented that "it became obvious to me that to the children, community means friendship and beautiful surroundings in our village. Michelle was asked to choose 6 photos.
