Dear Krishna,

Thank you for sending through the invoice for the books so promptly.

I have to thank you again for your wonderful workshop which was so colourful, so immersive as well as being incredibly informative.

The photos speak volumes of the boys’ enjoyment of the day and the staff all spoke praisingly of the workshop saying they learnt so much from it.

The staff were not only impressed by the engaging way you delivered your knowledge of the subject but also touched by the spirituality present within you and Indriyesha.

I would be more than happy to book you again next year but unfortunately will not be able to confirm anything until the Autumn term. I will also speak to other colleagues about booking you for the older groups or perhaps booking you for a whole day next year.

Once again, thank you so much for your wonderful workshop and I look forward to seeing you next year.

Kind regards,

Tasneem Outten

Email from Theresa Rainsford, Deputy HT:

Thank you so much for our fantastic workshop yesterday. All the children had a wonderful day and learned so much – they haven’t stopped talking about it! We’ll definitely be recommending your workshops to others. We will have a look at our diaries and think about booking for next year – I’ll be in touch with some dates!

 

In the meantime, here are some comments from the children about what they enjoyed or learned:

 

  • We enjoyed the stick dance (part of Holi celebrations) and we learnt about the story of Sita and Rama.
  • We always thought that there was only one god in Hinduism but I understand that there are many (but some people do think that there was one major god).
  • I enjoyed taking part in the stick dancing because it was so unlike dancing in our culture.   When I wore the man’s clothing, it gave me some idea of what it would be like wearing the clothes in a hot country
  • I loved the dancing outside as it was very different and full of energy.
  • In the stories, there were good and bad characters and it made the stories very interesting.
  • I really like the stories about Krishna and his flute-playing.
  • I enjoyed the stories that she told us also all the activities were really fun.
  • Painting our hands and faces and putting on a bindi, was educational and fun.
  • I loved painting our faces and painting our hand I also enjoyed dancing outside.
  • I enjoyed learning about Krishna as an avatar.
  • I really enjoyed the workshop on Hinduism! I learnt lots of new and interesting information. Thank you Krishna for such an amazing experience!
  • All the stories were unique and so entertaining! Thank you Krishna for giving up your time for a wonderful day.
  • Thank you so much, you taught us a lot, I really enjoyed all the stories and it was a brilliant experience.
  • Thank you Krishna, I learnt so much!
  • I REALLY enjoyed the Hinduism day and I would give it a 10/10!
  • I was surprised that most Hindus are vegetarian.
  • I didn’t know before that Hinduism originated in India.
  • I loved dressing up it was really fun, I hope we do something similar again in high school.
  • I really enjoyed the Hindu day and I would definitely recommend it to other schools.
  • I really enjoyed meditating because it got all of the stress out of me.
  • I can’t believe it’s our last time doing the Hinduism workshop, thank you I enjoyed it very much!
  • I really enjoyed the Hinduism day and learnt a lot.
  • I loved it when we did the stick dancing and when you told us about the god and the demi gods.
  • I loved all the magical stories!
  • I didn’t know before that not all Hindus believe in exactly the same things.
  • I enjoyed learning that some Hindus believe in one god and some believe in lots.
  • I liked it when we talked about animals. Hindus drink milk from cows that they own and they are sacred.
  • I thought it was great that important people keep cool with a fan made from yak’s hair!
  • I was surprised that Hindus believe in more than one god.
