Vaisakhi is a very special time in the Sikh calendar.
It’s a day to celebrate the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh’s formation of the Khalsa – a group of people who chose the Sikhi way of life. Each year, April 14 marks the date that the Khalsa was first formed all the way back in 1699.
Khalsa Primary School will be marking this occasion with a whole week of learning (From 1st April to 5th April).
Vaisakhi is sometimes called Baisakhi, Vaishakhi, or Vasakhi. This is simply a regional difference and there is no wrong or right way to spell it. This event is celebrated with great pageantry across the world.
