Learners at Hinckley went on a special visit to a Hindu temple as part of their work on Hinduism.

The learners visited the Shri Swaminarayan Hindu temple in Leicester where they listened to a guide explaining the Hindu faith and facts about the temple.

Claire Nulty, Teaching Assistant said: “The visit allowed our pupils to reflect on the importance of the temple in the Hindu community and why places of worship, in general, play a vital role in bringing communities together. It highlighted the significance of understanding and reflecting the beliefs and traditions of others.

“The children were curious and inquisitive and the guide patiently answered their questions, further enhancing their understanding of Hinduism and temple practices.”

Since then, fantastic displays on Hinduism and Christianity have been created at Hinckley to further share more religious insights.
