Another Free School Given The Go-Ahead In Derby

Recommended Posts

PLANS for another city free school in Derby have been given the go-ahead by the Government.

The Akaal Primary School is one of 38 new free schools to be announced and is set to open in September 2015.

Originally, the school was going to be a Sikh academy set up by members of the Singh Sabha Gurdwara in Princes Street, Derby but it now being run by an independent group with the support of all gurdwaras in the city.

After taking advice from the New Schools Network, it was decided to alter the plan to make the proposed school more inclusive, catering especially for migrant children from Eastern European countries, as well as Sikhs, and anyone else who wished to attend.

Dr Daljit Singh Virk,chair of the Akaal Education Trust, said: The proposed school will aim to be outstanding academically and aim to develop pupils morally, socially, spiritually, physically and mentally."

Work will now begin to identify suitable premises or a site for the new school in conjunction with Derby City Council.

Derby has two other free schools - Al-Madinah School, which received a damning inspecton report within 12 months of opening and Derby Pride Academy, which recently was given an "outstanding" report by Ofsted.

    • 1. Can you share the source of this reading? So we can all get some more context and verify the validity of this reading material please?   2. Raaj isn't really preached in the teaching of the Gurus. If so, I'm sure the 10 Guru's would've clearly made this apparent in their teachings and would have accomplished this objective themselves.    Sri Guru Granth Sahib - Ang: 534 (Guru Arjan Dev Ji): Raaj Na Chahou Mukat Na Chahou Man Preet Charan Kamalare. (I do not seek power and I do not seek liberation. My mind is in love with your lotus feet)   Sri Dasam Granth Sahib - Ang: 57 (Bachitar Naatak):   Ham Ih Kaaj Jagat Mo Aae. Dharam Heth Gurdev Patthai. (I have set foot on this Earth for this one reason; to propogate righteousness)   Jahaan Tahaan Tum Dharam Bithaaro. DushT Dokheean Pakarr Pachharro. (The Lord has asked me to spread Dharam and vanquish tyrants and evil-minded individuals)   I could reference countless other tuk's from Gurbaani but i'm sure these two suffice.   Akali Baba Phoola Singh Ji was walking in the steps of the teachings of the Gurus; on a mission to eliminate the enemy; in this case being the British who tried ever so hard to eliminate our teachings by performing disgusting acts such as but not limited to: Creating the SGPC Spreading propaganda of the Khalsa Issuing 'shoot on-sight' orders to kill Singhs Spreading propaganda on our scriptures Sending in paid Sikhs to spread nonsence and create divisions Polluting the Khandeh Di Pahul maryada by introducing other cults to participate Removing the Nihang Singhs from the Akaal Bunga Sahib aka Akaal Takhat Sahib and therefore the whole Jathedaari system that has been in place since the time of the Gurus.  
    • The players are all built like tanks so there are physical benefits to it.
    • I know this topic has been addressed before (see here) but I was wondering if anyone has anymore knowledge to share about the 4 yugs. I was wondering how this would fit with modern day science. If anyone also has any videos or books on this subject, please share 🙃 Bhul Chuk Maaf 🙏

      I feel like some people on this post are being really hard on you. You're in a really difficult situation and I feel like that can happen to anyone. I feel like the advice just do Paat or Gurbani and everything will work out isn't completely accurate advice. Gurbani will only change a person when they themselves want to change, or when it's written into their Destiny by Mahraaj themselves.  No one should tolerate rude and disrespectful behaviour. It's just not acceptable. It might be possible for you to set particular boundaries with your husband, especially since you have children too. But I think the best thing to do would be to honestly consult with yourself and see whether his behaviour is really something you are willing to put up with for the rest of your life.
