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.

The Gatka teacher and volunteers work hard to teach Gatka to our beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Students have the opportunity to practice with a variety of Shastars. #gurmatcenter #gatka The time lapse covers over five and a half hours of participants sitting in a cross-legged position. Throughout the competition, students recited Mool Mantar Jaap. #gurmatcenter #crossleggedcompetition The 26th annual Cross-Legged Competition was a great success! With over 100 participants from preschool to grade 12, students maintained a cross-legged position for as long as possible. Participants received individualized certificates, prizes for every hour and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd  place in each age group. #gurmatcenter #crossleggedcompetition #prizes Registrations for Spring Gurmat Camp 2019 are officially open!
