Gurmat Education

BASIC TEACHINGS

Gurmat teaching is imparted to the students of class 1st to class 12th standards in various schools of Punjab adopted by the Trust with the help of Gurmat Teachers.

Main activities under this program are:

  1. Gurmat books are printed for class 1st to class 10th and provided to the students.
  2. Three (3) periods per week are allotted to each class for Gurmat Teaching.
  3. Examinations are held every six months (oral for class 1st to 4th and written for class 5th to 12th).

Teacher Training Camps are organized every year to improve the teaching skills where faculty members from various Universities are invited to interact with the teachers on subjects like Gurmat, Sikh history, Students psychology, methodology of teaching etc.

GURMAT COMPETITIONS

The Trust organizes Gurmat competitions every year at the Zonal level to create enthusiasm and fellowship among students. Subjects covered are Gurbani Kanth, Kirtan, Lectures, kavishari, Poetry, Wartalap, Gatka, Quiz (highlighting drug abuse and environment protection).

FOREIGN & NATIONAL TRIPS

The students selected after Gurmat Competitions are sent to USA/Canada/Hong Kong at the request of Sikh Sangat residing in these countries. Students give program in Kirtan/ Kavishery, Kavita in Gurdwaras in these countries and propagate our program of gurmat teaching. These programs encourage the students to learn gurmat with great interest as it provides them the opportunity to go abroad and to other Indian states.
