CHILDREN from Huddersfield’s Sikh community celebrated their achievements at a special presentation event.
They have attended a nine-day Summer School with the theme of Olympic values.
Jas Sohanpal, education co-ordinator at the Sikh Temple, said: “The images and information gained from the field trips by the students will stay with them forever and they will be able to use the knowledge acquired in their mainstream schooling.
“While the children were learning about the Olympics, they were also improving their numeracy and literacy skills. At the Sikh Temple we feel the added advantage of summer school/supplementary school is that it encourages good behaviour.”
Kirklees Council contributed £1,500 to the project and contributions were also made by the management committee of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Prospect Street, Springwood, and parents who paid £15 per child for trips to Greenhead Park, the National Coal Mining Museum at Grange Moor and the National Photographic Museum in Bradford.
