Parents and grandparents of some 150 children turned up for the final day of the Sojhi Programme NaatKala 2015 at the Sikh Centre Singapore today (4 Oct 2015).
Sojhi is a structured Sikhi programme conducted every Sunday for children between 4-13 years.
“This is the only programme in Singapore that provides such lessons to children on a regular basis here,” an official from the centre tells Asia Samachar.
Totally run by parents and volunteers, the programme imparts Sikhi knowledge, lessons from history and competency in Sikh prayers and kirtan.
Its curriculum was adopted from the US-based Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) but over time has been contextualised for children in Singapore.
At the final class today, parents and children had put up short skits demonstrating the values and lessons the children had learnt over the last year.
“A key priority of The Sikh Centre is the continued focus on providing our children the programmes to impart lessons from Sri Guru Ganth Sahib and to embody Sikh values,” the official adds.
