Ramgarhia Education Centre is looking for volunteers (teachers and assistants) to help them in the next academic year. We are also looking for Admin support at the front desk. If you are interested in volunteering as a teacher or assistant in a classroom, and you have a good knowledge of Sikhi or have fluent knowledge of Punjabi in reading and writing , please speak to the Admin team. All our teachers are volunteers and are committed to providing a good sound education to our younger generations. There is no greater sewa then to provide education on Sikhi to our young people which will enhance their adult life.
Sunday School was set up over 30 years ago as a way to occupy children who came to the Gurdwara but did not understand anything about why they have come to the Gurdwara. Sunday School has grown over the years and supported by the Gurdwara, hired a proper school to hold lessons. The school has improved over the years with a good standard of religious education offered and the number of students have grown year on year.
Presently Sunday School has over 300 students, reception and year 1 and year 2 are heavily oversubscribed. We aim to do our utmost to accommodate the children rather than put them on the waiting list simply because we believe that no child should lose the opportunity to learn about their faith and mother tongue. Over the years students have successfully passed their GSCE in Punjabi and Sikh Studies, with this year seeing new additional class for students who are interested in studying for A level Punjabi and Sikh Studies.

Guidance on the wearing of Sikh articles of faith in the workplace and public spaces
Sometimes the wearing of Sikh articles of faith may appear to conflict with the needs of an organisation and the lack of understanding of Sikh articles of faith can inadvertently lead to tensions between the rights of individuals and the rights of the organisation.
