Happy Birthday!

Thanks to Maple Class in Year 6 for their very informative assembly today about Guru Nanak. They taught us about why Sikhs view this as one of their most sacred festival days and lots about Sikhism in general and the other Gurus that they have. These Gurus were responsible for shaping the beliefs of the Sikhs. Their birthdays, known as Gurpurab (or Gurpurb), are occasions for celebration and prayer among the Sikhs. It is always fascinating to find out about what other people believe and helps us in our thinking about respect and tolerance too!
