Kingfishers Trip to the Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Preston…
As part of their topic work on ‘Sikhism’, Kingfishers thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Preston on Tuesday, 6th February, where they were showed videos of the Golden Temple in India and discovered how to identify a Sikh person and about the 5 K’s.
The children were invited into the main prayer room where they discovered the holy scriptures of the Guru Granth Sahib. They learnt how Sikhs enter and worship on a daily basis and were given snacks and a drink. The adults were offered a selection of spicy Indian food inside the ‘Langar’, which is the Sikh kitchen and this is always open to anyone from any faith.
We are delighted to have been placed 29th in England for 2017 results, in results published by the Department for Education in December 2017. This is a fantastic achievement for the pupils and staff of Gisburn Primary School, as previously we were placed 83rd in the November 2015 list of top 200 State Primary Schools, in the Sunday Times.
