Sikhism

St Peter’s Christian vision inspires the whole school community to engage in the understanding, respect and tolerance for other World Faiths in the local, national and global community.

To have a secure understanding of Sikhism and the beliefs of the Sikh Faith, we thought it was important for all the children to look at different aspects of Sikhism in-depth and share their learning.

Please have a look below and read about what we learned, our reflections on this faith and see how similar our shared beliefs are.
