Thank you once again for another superb visit to the Mandir. It was great learning for the children and a truly enriching experience. The pupils all gained so much from it and thank you to all the wonderful staff who helped make the day the great success that it was.

I greatly look forward to future visits.

Thank you very much for your time and sharing your knowledge with our pupils. They all enjoyed your presentation and were able to share many of the facts when we returned to school.

Some of my pupils have drawn a beautiful picture of the temple and we will send a copy to you as a thank you.

It is a remarkable place of worship and also a monument to dedication, belief, hard work and craftsmanship.

It was a wonderful experience to visit the Mandir.

Thank you for hosting Briscoe Primary and Nursery school at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Temple on Wednesday. We look forward to visiting again with more year groups in future.

The children loved it and were very excited to experience the Arti and seeing Murtis of gods they have learnt about in school. All our members of staff found the experience to be an uplifting and joyful one.

Thank you and your community for being wonderful hosts.

As always, the visit was a delight and we hope to be visiting you annually with our 186 Year 8 boys for many years to come. You are always friendly and welcoming, and amenable to us having a plan and working around it, so long as we work around the Arti ceremony and the closing of the shrine room.

As always our children benefited greatly from their visit to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. You are all so welcoming and tolerant of the children. It is especially lovely to see some of our children who have very limited experiences expressing their delight in their surroundings.

Many thanks again. I’m sure we will see you again next year.

As always, our visit was very enjoyable and the students learned and experienced much about Hinduism. We appreciated very much the kindness, care and attention given to us by the volunteers and staff in the Temple.

Thanks, and look forward to our visit again next year.
