Booking Form


We come to your school and give a room a makeover into the place of worship where we then work with your students.


Each experience is tailored to the desirable outcomes that the school/group wants. Generally, we attempt to create the atmosphere and similar surroundings of the actual place of worship, surrounding the pupils with physical, musical and emotional aspects of the faith. The experience can last between 1 to 2 hours to a limited number of participents.


To begin with, we provide shoe racks, with the expectation that all in attendance remove their footwear to emulate the processes followed in the place of worship. Music is played in the room where appropriate and statues and related objects are placed in the room to surround the pupils with visual aspects of Hinduism. The first experience is allowing the senses to take in the environment, gain the sights, smells and sounds of the Hindu Temple.

Descriptions of the surroundings are then given by a member of the RS Resources Centre team, or where possible, a member of the Hindu community. After this has happened, the film of the Hindu Temple is shown to pupils, leading into group discussion and further explanatory work.

A hands on approach is used to explore the faith, using 'feely bags' to allow pupiles to explore objects of faith with their hands and eyes, describing what they see and feel from every day objects in use. Linked with information cards, this provides pupils with a valuable insight in to the reality of the faith and the use of symbolism. A session on creative expression through writing and/or drawing will then allowe pupils to express what they have learnt, often done with the accompaniment of music to further inspire the pupils. Food can be offered from the faith where appropriate.
