An 11-16 Academy
Sikh Visitor to Year 7 by Alex Pierce-Saunderson
On the 14th of February 2013, Bhupindar Singh Sually came to talk to the Year Sevens about being a Sikh. He was an interesting man and had lots to talk about. Sometimes he even changed the subject when he was talking, answering a completely different question.
He said that it is better to be a good human being than a good Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or Sikh. Being a good human is important. Although he talked about what you have to do to be a good human, he also asked what the worst thing you could do to someone as a human. What? Many of the children in the classes suggested that it would be killing someone, but it wasn’t the right answer. Bhupindar said that the worst thing to do to another human being was to hurt their feelings and hurt them on the inside.
He put a turban on my head and I was surprised to find that it was very light and comfortable. The turban was a little bit complicated to put on, it took ages. He must have to get up quite early in the morning to put it on and still get to work on time.
It was great meeting him and I am really glad that I did. He taught me lots about Sikhs and how we should all live as human beings. I hope we meet someone next year from a different religion, because if we learn as much as we did when he came, everyone will be really good at P.R.E.
