“The children were extremely engaged in all aspects of the workshop, even children who sometimes find it difficult to focus. Children were buzzing after the dancing and were eager to talk about their experiences to their friends. It has really been such a beneficial experience for the children in developing their knowledge which has been led by an inspiring practitioner. Many thanks”.

“A fantastic, hands on session which brought elements of Indian cultures and traditions to life for the children. A real memory making workshop!”
Lisa Wright, Year 3/4 Teacher. Gonerby Hill Foot C of E Primary School, Grantham
“An absolutely fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable experience. The children were blown away by the experiential dancing, colourful resources and delightful story telling, which was such a perfect start to our Hinduism topic! I would whole heartedly recommend “The Indian Experience” to any school. The learning that emerged from it was superb. Thank you once again Mr & Mrs Patel. Kindest regards Jon Brown.”
Mr Jon Brown, Deputy Head. Rauceby Primary School
“We make sure every year that we book Sunita to come into school. She provides an enjoyable, stimulating and educational day that the kids love and where they are able to confront their own stereotypes. Thank you Sunita, your Indian Experience is invaluable to us in educating the children about other cultures as they have very little experience”.
Toby Linnett St Mary’s C of E Primary School, Melton Mowbray

'Religious Education (RE) makes a significant contribution to pupils’ academic and personal development. It also plays a key role in promoting social cohesion and the virtues of respect and empathy, which are important in our diverse society. However, the potential of RE was not being realised fully in the majority of the schools surveyed for this report.'
