Punjabi School

We feel it is important for our community to learn Punjabi because Punjabi is the mother tongue of the Punjabis as well as the language of the Sikh Religion. Through learning Punjabi, we gain an undertstanding of the Sikh cultural and spiritual heritage and develop a strong tie with the Punjab, the birthplace of Sikhism.

More importantly, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji is written in Gurmukhi and it is only through knowing and understanding Punjabi that a Sikh can fully participate in the worship of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji in the sangat.

The aim is to provide fun and enjoyable activities for children to learn to speak, read and write in Punjabi. The starting age is 5 years and most progress to take GCSE Punjabi with an excellent success rate.

If you are interested in enrolling at the Punjabi School please contact us at the Punjabi School or pick up a form from the Gurdwara Library.

Class times

The Punjabi classes for children are held on every week. The first class is on Friday 4:45pm to 6:45pm and the second one is on Saturday 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
