The Sikhism day was one of three faith days held by the Church of England school every year.

During the day, all the year groups joined up to work together.

Pupils took part in different practices associated with a Sikh group or community.

The activities varied from creating a Chauri - a special fan used to wave over their holy book the Guru Granth Sahib, to learning some Gatka moves, which is a form of combat training developed by Sikhs.
