Welcome to the Guru Nanak Punjabi School Page. The school is located at the SW Sikh Society of Calgary Gurdwara. Although classes for young adults were started as early as 1969, the school was formed in 1979 with Sardar Sulakhan Singh Chopra as the Principal. The school has been and continues to be run by dedicated volunteers to this day.

The mission of the school is to engage our young children in our culture and provide an atmosphere to learn the base of our language, culture and religion. The school offers two different classes for children, a drop-in Sunday class and a registered Friday evening class. We also offer Sikh Summer camps for students. If you are interested in Punjabi classes or Summer Camp for your children, please see the Class section for information and registration forms. In addition to the children’s classes, the School also offers an Adult Santhia class with a focus on reading and understanding Gurbani. Again, please see the Class section for more details.

The Guru Nanak Punjabi School also recognizes that volunteers are the backbone of our school and we are always looking for engaged, dedicated volunteers. We offer a number of diverse volunteer opportunities and for those who are interested in volunteering, please visit the Volunteer section for more information.

Finally, the school is run with the help of the Sikh Society of Calgary and your generous contributions. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact the Punjabi School Coordinator and
