In July 2010, the Gujarati school was first started due to the requests and support of parents at the residence of Bharatbhai Dabasia. The children were not only taught how to speak and read Gujarati but also get an understanding for our culture, festivals and religion through fun activities, plays, stories and the singing of shloks and poems.
As interest in the community grew, the Gujarati school was moved to the Shree Swaminarayan Temple (Mandir) Perth Complex. At one point, older students had also begun to join in to be able to read our scriptures in Gujarati.
Great improvements have been seen in students of all ages as we ended another great year. The combined help of parents and volunteers was greatly appreciated and necessary in the successful running of the school. It’s this support from the community that makes all the difference.
