Collective Worship

Collective worship takes place in the Temple and in the classrooms. It includes opportunities to wear and apply tilak, chant japa, engage in kirtan, reflect, meditate, pray, and listen to stories and verses from scriptures.

Collective worship will help to:

  • Consolidate pupils' faith by providing positive spiritual experiences
  • Enrich the distinctive character of the school
  • Generate a culturally and spiritually nurturing atmosphere
  • Nurture pupils' self-esteem and their religious traditions
  • Help pupils become well-versed, self-reliant and skilled in worship
  • Develop pupils' critical and reflective thinking skills
  • Nurture the children's natural attraction for God

 


* Parents have the legal right to withdraw their child from collective worship and Religious Education; however, before making this decision, parents are requested to discuss their concerns with the Headteacher. Parents need to give in advance annual written notification to the school.
