Panjabi School

We feel it is important for our community to learn Panjabi because Panjabi is the mother tongue of the Panjabis as well as the language of the Sikh Religion. Through learning Panjabi, we gain an understanding of the Sikh cultural and spiritual heritage and develop a strong tie with the Panjab, the birthplace of Sikhism.

More importantly, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji is written in Gurmukhi and it is only through knowing and understanding Punjabi that a Sikh can fully participate in the worship of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji in the sangat.

1984 Punjabi School

The Panjabi Language School teaches Panjabi up to G.C.S.E level. It was opened in 1975 and since then over 2,500 children have been taught Panjabi in this school. Currently there are nearly 200 children attending the school, aged from 5 to 16 years.

The aim is to provide fun and enjoyable activities for children to learn to speak, read and write in Panjabi. The starting age is 5 years and most progress to take GCSE Panjabi with an excellent success rate.

Fun days and Prize days are held annually in August/September and help to encourage and inspire the children and their families.

If you are interested in enrolling at the Panjabi School please contact us at the Panjabi School.  School policies and procedures are available upon request from the School Office.  All children and parents are expected to follow the appropriate Code of Conduct.  Any behaviour which breaches this will trigger relevant safeguarding steps to be taken,  The Panjabi School and Creche follow a zero tolerance policy against abusive and/or bullying behaviour.

Class times

The Panjabi classes for children are held as two separate sessions every Sunday. The first session is from 10:00am to 11:30am and the second from 11:45am to 1:15 pm.
