C) Academic or information content
Score: 5
Strength: Thank you for providing the children with lots of information about Hinduism in general in addition to your specific beliefs and practices. The children were reminded about learning from school, which was brought to life for them, and learnt lots of new information. The information was delivered in a way that it was clear you were talking about your beliefs without any suggestion that you were pushing them onto others in any way.
Suggestions:

Tours and cart rides
Score: 5
Strength: The children (and adults) LOVED the cart rides and feeding the cows. We were also lucky enough to see the cows being milked. The grounds tour was really interesting. We really liked the opportunity for the children to move freely around the George Harrison Memorial Garden where they were safely contained!
Suggestions:

Dressing-up workshops
Score: 5
Strength: What an amazing experience! The children were not pushed into doing anything they were not comfortable with but most fully engaged in this activity.
Suggestions: It would have been nice if the girl’s faces had been painted to co-ordinate with when they were wearing their saris for the full look but we of course understand that time constraints do not allow for this!

Seeing the shrine
Score: 5
Strength: How lucky we were to see the children from the school chanting and playing instruments in the shrine area – thank you.
Suggestions:

Lunch
Score: 5
Strength: Delicious – so many more of the children tried it and enjoyed it than we, or they, expected. I think it was really sensible to bring the chips out later than the rest of the food to encourage them to try something new first. Thank you to everybody who cooked and served us.
Suggestions:

Face painting
Score: 5
Strength: Thanks for letting even us adults have our faces painted!
Suggestions:

Hospitality and friendliness
Score: 5
Strength: You could have not been more friendly and welcoming. The people who led our experience MADE it for us. Thank you from all of us who came for welcoming us so amazingly into your temple and treating us so wonderfully.
Suggestions:

Value for money
Score: 5
Strength: The school funded this trip as we feel it is very important for the children to have such experiences. We feel that we got an excellent experience for what we paid.
Suggestions:

The overall visit
