Answer

(Fatwa: 514/311/D=1432)

The worship of gods and goddess is shirk. It is haram for a Muslim to participate in it. It is not lawful to help in the Puja (worship) or make donation. Hence Muslims should be concerned and try to save the children from such acts so that Muslim children are saved from polytheistic practices in the school. Or they should establish such schools that are free from such acts.
