BHS Educational Workshops can accomo-date up to a 380 pupils per day from early years up to GCSE level. If you have a larger amount of pupils, we can split the work-shops over a two or three day period, either on adjacent or seperated dates. We will reduce the workshop fees according to the amount of days we're at your school.
Dedicated assemblies or additional assemblies are also possible with planning. If you require any more information see our Workshop Fees and contact us. Our staff will be delighted to hear from you.
We provide costumes for early years arranging the lessons to suit their attention span and abilities. The workshops contain the following items:
A primary workshop is very extensive. A complete array of costumes for children of all shapes and sizes is provided; including masks, turbans, crowns, wigs, beards, moustaches, tails and imitation weapons. As you can imagine, the children and staff thoroughly enjoy getting dressed up.
A typical workshop goes something like this...
This happy parent got dressed up and joined in the fun learning with her children at a Gloucester school. We are more than happy to encourage parents to get involved with the workshops and the children absolutely love it!
Our workshops are not only for the pupils but are also great fun for mums and dads too. Teaching staff usually like to get dressed up and have their face painted as well, this makes our workshops a big hit with everyone!
Secondary school children are often amazed at our work-shops. They are old enough to grasp basic Eastern concepts such as reincarnation (samsara), nonviolence (ahimsa), the three qualities of material nature (tri-guna), the three different types of action (tri-karma) along with their repercussions along with cultural and ethical topics like vegetariansim, chastity and cow protection.
The workshop stucture is more or less the same as primary schools but with a more informative element and extra time for taking notes and questions and answers.
The Hindu mock wedding is very popular in all establishments. Pupils and students experience all the excitment, drama, colour and fun of a Hindu wedding! The bride and groom are chosen by the teachers whilst the rest of the class role play as best man, bridemaids, parents, other family members and friends. We even have Mr Bighead arrive to protest against the wedding taking place. Someone is also chosen to play an astrologer who helps the couple prepare for any negative aspects of the relationship that may pop up as time goes by. It is a colourful and exciting experience for both staff and students. Click on the photo above to access video footage from a typical primary school mock wedding.
