School Gurdwara facility
The Sikh religion believes in one creator and acknowledges that HIS spirit or Divine Light prevails in all human beings. Accepting humanity as siblings of the same Divine Father, Sikhism strives to reach out to people of all faiths and cultures, and works towards world peace and achieving unity in diversity.
The real objective for establishing this educational institution is not only to teach the prescribed curriculum, but to develop the all-round personality of our youth so they become proud of their heritage and live the honourable Sikh way of life. Education and knowledge is treated like the third eye, through which an individual can see within and outside of one’s self. Our education aims to broaden the ‘wisdom horizon’ and a person’s development of spiritual tendencies. It aims to make a person wise, both academically and spiritually. This institution is to instil a sense of knowing the cardinal principles of Sikhism so that our youth can contribute meaningfully to the growth of society. No student will be forced to follow other than what they believe in.
About the facility
In order to meet the Sikh ethos of the school and to meet the needs of the local Sikh community, the facility will be located at the site, similar to the prayer halls and chapel facilities provided in various religion based schools across Australia. This facility will assist the student community to learn the Sikh way of life and its practices at the school premises. This facility will be available as a meeting place for the local community and parents. As per Sikh religious traditions this facility will provide free food (langer) to the students and the community.
The school will provide electronic facilities to the students and the community to learn about the Sikh history and religion by providing modern interactive facilities that are very different to other Gurdwaras. These facilities will be a world first and we prefer to call it “electronic Gurdwara Sahib”
