On Wednesday22nd March Year 5 went to an Hindu Temple to take part in the Arti Ceremony, as part of their Religious Studies to develop their understanding and tolerance of other faiths which forms part of our British and school values. We started our religious educational visit with a presentation by Mrs Bhwana, Guide at the Hindu Temple, introducing the main facts about the Hindu Faith. Following a very enlightening session, children witnessed the Arti ceremony where worshippers thanked GOD. After the ceremony, the Priest distributed the light and worshippers cupped their hands to receive it and spread it on their heads.
