Year 5 and Year 6 trip to Gita Bhavan Temple

As part of our RE curriculum and our rolling programme of visits to different buildings of worship, y5 and y6 visited the Gita Bhavan Hindu Mandir in Manchester.

We were welcomed by Mrs Pritti Mistry who is a primary school teacher and worshipper at the Mandir.

Resplendent in her sari, Mrs Mistry talked about the naturistic values of Hinduism and answered many questions from the pupils about worship, festivals and in particular the amazing murti (statues of the deities/gods) within the temple.

Our pupils were very respectfu, interested and well behaved throughout. Mrs Mistry said they were a credit to their parents and Hollinhey.

Each child was offered Prasaad (fruit) on leaving and we returned to Hollinhey having experienced something quite special.

Thank you to the parents who accompanied us.
