A visit to the Shri Ganesha Temple Complex is an ideal way to learn about Hinduism in the Religious Education curriculum and get a firsthand experience of the Hindu faith in practice. Whether it’s learning about the world’s oldest living faith from an interactive presentation, or seeing a traditional Hindu temple and experiencing an arti ceremony, students young and old – as well as teachers – find their trips to the Temple to be educational, inspiring and enjoyable.
That is why so many schools and educational groups choose to visit us year on year, and as a result, we welcome around 60 such groups throughout a normal academic calendar. School groups include junior, primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and sometimes even universities. RE teachers and trainee teachers are also welcome, as are student groups from around the world.
