“We aim to Educate and Inspire”
“Our workshops are fun, invigorating and exciting”
“We bring the topics of India and Hinduism alive”
“We are extremely proud to be able to help with delivering a Multi-Cultural experience in schools”
Our India & Hinduism-themed workshops are designed to be presented to class sizes or groups of up to 30 pupils. This allows us to ensure that each and every child is directly involved in the experience. Every single member of your class is given the opportunity to use an artifact, wear an appropriate piece of costume, take part in dancing, and create Rangoli artwork.
All sessions are presented in a way that completely involves the audience and encourages them to be active participants wherever possible which provides an active learning experience that will captivate and inspire them.
The workshops have been designed to be very interactive and provide learning through many different activities such as storytelling, dancing, dressing up, presentations, and art, and are flexible enough to allow for all ages and abilities to benefit from them.
The workshops cover a range of areas within the schools’ national curriculum and include:
- Religious Education
- Physical Education
- Community Cohesion
- Every Child Matters
‘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.’
Ofsted Report (Religious education: realising the potential)
“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
“What a fantastic day! All pupils said what a great time they’d had. We were amazed at how completely involved even our severe Autistic pupils were. The approach in presentation & resources was spot on & all activities were great. Thank you so much. You’re brill!”
Kate Isaacs. The Priory Special School, Spalding. - Secondary School - "Moderate Learning Difficulties"
“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.”
