Guilden Sutton Primary School

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.
