The motive is to provide knowledge of Sikh history and Gurbani. The focus is on connecting students with Sikh History, Gurbani, and the value system based on Guru Granth Sahib Ji. These classes are organized based on a child’s age. To connect youth to Sikhi in a present-day teaching environment. Engage in the Glorious Sikh heritage and history to instill the Sikhi Spirt of Chardi Kala.
Also, involving stories that relate the tales of sacrifice, courage, compassion, and humility, instill in children what their ancestors stood for and display how great their sacrifice was. By Gurbani to reinforce these Sakhees, our hope is to bring kids closer to their Guru by remembering the path forged by those before us.
