Our School

Established in 1993, the Gurmat Center is a youth-focused, non-profit school created to foster a sense of belonging and instill strong values in the future of tomorrow: our children. The Gurmat Center aims to educate Sikh youth in their cultural language, the Gurmukhi script (Punjabi alphabet) and allow them to explore their Sikh identity in a safe and supportive environment.

Midterm exams for Punjabi classes have officially begun! This week’s midterm consists of a writing and the Dharmic test, followed by a reading test next week. For more practice, mock exams for levels 1, 2 & 3 are posted on the Gurmat Center website.

Lead by Manjit Singh Jee, students completed 12 paintings that reflected the theme “Sikh Pioneers in Canada”. Students, parents, grandparents, families, and friends came out to the Kariton Art Gallery opening reception to view the final product of the artists’ hard work. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful evening viewing the exhibit, hanging out, and eating food. The paintings will be posted on our website very shortly! Thank you for a great turnout! #gurmatcenter #watercolor #artgallery #exhibtion #Sikhpioneers This summer, the Gurmat Center Artworks class’ theme was ‘Sikh Pioneers in Canada’. After completing their paintings, students researched and learned the history behind their paintings. The artist then presented their research to Sangat in the Sunday Youth & Family Darbar. #gurmatcenter #artworks #watercolor #sikhpioneers #Canadianhistory Gurmat Center introduces our newest program, Gurbani Path Smagam! This monthly program is an opportunity for all students to come together with their families and Sangat to read Gurbani to enhance their Gurbani reading skills and to receive blessings from Vaheguru. #gurmatcenter #gurbani #pathsmagam Gurmat Center held it’s first teacher and volunteer meeting of the year.
