To develop religious values among the next generation of Sikhs in the diaspora, special three-hour sessions are held for children on Saturdays at the Gurdwara where they are taught Punjabi, Kirtan and Gurdara protocol. There are already 55 children attending these classes. Most families are sending their children for kirtan classes.

Santhiya is the correct pronunciation of Gurbani, taught in the manner of how The 10th Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji wanted all to read and pronounce the Holy Shabads.
