On the last day of 2016, Nalanda Dhamma School Facilitators, students and their parents, alumni, volunteers and guests gathered at Nalanda Centre for the annual School Appreciation and Honours Day. It was an important event to celebrate the learning and progress of students throughout the year, and also to give thanks to teachers and parents who supported their learning.
On Sunday 20 November, Nalanda Dhamma School in Johor Bahru celebrated the succesful completion of their second year with an “Appreciation & Honours Day”. This year, 34 teenagers grew together with us at our spiritually-nourishing NEO Centre.
As 2016 draws to a close, let us take this opportunity to reflect, express gratitude, and radiate loving-kindness to the whole world. We invite you to come with your family and friends to ‘calm down’ to the New Year at Nalanda Centre on Saturday, 31 December. We shall be having the traditional meditation, chanting and blessings from 11pm to 12am on New Year’s Eve to welcome 2017.
On New Year’s Eve, all members of Nalanda Dharma School came together for the School reunion of the year. This was the day where all members reflect and rejoice over the School’s achievements. It was also to celebrate the contributions and progress made by students throughout the year.
On the last day of 2012, members of Nalanda Dharma School came together for the perfect reunion, the School Honours Day! This year, it was a big family gathering with the addition of junior students from Nalanda Education & Outreach (NEO) Centre in Happy Garden. It is a day for all to reflect and also rejoice over the commitment to learning they have put in throughout the year.
Nalanda Dharma School facilitators and students are currently busy repairing, repainting and preparing Nalanda House to welcome the new school year in January 2013. Starting today and over the weekend, they are hard at work to ensure a conducive and welcoming environment for facilitators and students alike to learn the Dhamma.
31 December is an important day for Nalanda Dharma School. This is the time when the School celebrates the contributions and progress made by students throughout the year. For 2011, the School Honours day was very different from previous years’ because this time around, it was solely organized by the students; a task previously done by School facilitators.
