What is Gobind Sarvar?
About Gobind Sarvar
Gobind Sarvar School is a Non-Profit organization run entirely by volunteer members (parents, youth, and staff) who work in partnership to carry out all services of the institute. The school's ethos is based on the teachings of Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The Sikh ethos is embedded in all learning curricular. Gobind Sarvar proudly serves as a regional hub for Sikh Education in California, drawing its student population from various municipalities in the Central Valley, as well as other parts of the state. Students attend the institute in addition to attending regular K-12 public schools. Thus, students take their extracurricular classes at the institute in the evenings and weekends.
The first Gobind Sarvar School was established on the tri-centenary of the Khalsa Sirjna Divas in 1999 adjacent to Darbar Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Bulandpuri Sahib, Punjab. Subsequently, with Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's amazing love and blessings Gobind Sarvar Schools are currently operating worldwide in Canada (British Columbia, Calgary, Ontario), Walsall (UK), France (Paris), and USA (Fresno, Michigan, and New York).
At Gobind Sarvar, we aim to provide a GurSikhi orientated school, within which all the students work hard to realise their full blessing of Gurmat (Guru Ji's teachings & values), Gurbani (Guru Ji's sacred utterances) and Gurbani Kirtan (the Sikh musical art form of singing Gods praises), and provide a caring and loving environment to lay the foundations on which the practice of Sikhi is fostered and nurtured.
To provide a quality Gurmat education that is broad, balanced and relevant to the needs of pupils within a modern society.
To enable all students to develop their latent spiritual potential by connecting with Gurbani, through the highest standards of teaching and learning.
To develop students' self-esteem, confidence, independence and engender consideration for others through the concept of Sewa; and through practical Sewa based activities strengthen bonds between school, home and wider community.
To encourage every member of our student community to invest in developing all aspects of Sikhi by providing opportunities in learning of Sikhi language (Gurmukhi), Sikhi arts (Gurbani Kirtan), and Sikhi values (Gurmat) to strengthen every students' spiritual and physical development.
