Our curriculum is designed to bring alive our vision statement which is:
At Khalsa Primary we are helping our children grow in mind, body and spirit. We aim for excellence in academic, emotional and spiritual areas of understanding. Our children learn how to work with passion, ethics, honesty and self-discipline. They share their skills in service to the community, with love and without discrimination. They learn gratitude and self-discovery through learning how to connect with God. The whole school community aspires to work together as a genuine team, basing our daily practice in the five Sikh values of love, compassion, contentment, humility and truth.
Through our curriculum at Khalsa our children will learn to become fully rounded people, by:
