DOZENS of children have been at a summer school.
More than 40 children aged seven to 11 took part in the school at the Sikh Temple on Prospect Street, Springwood.
And the temple’s Punjabi language school is again celebrating excellent exam results, with all four A-level pupils and all 10 GCSE pupils passing.
The temple’s education co-ordinator, Jaswant Singh Sohanpal, said: “A programme of this nature helps children to increase their educational abilities and generally improve their attitude to schooling.
“Since the inception of the school in 1997 85.7% of the students who have been studying the Punjabi language and Sikh religion at the temple have obtained grades between A* to C in GCSE and A-level.”
The temple’s president, Kundan Singh Aujla, thanked the school’s funders.
He said: “We wouldn’t be able to run this school without the generosity of the Sikh community. Its members have donated thousands of pounds to ensure that we teach our children the values of the Sikh faith and to live in harmony in this country.”
The school’s 150 students learn about the Punjabi language, the Sikh religion and traditional Indian musical instruments, such as the tabla and dhole.
