On the last day of 2015, Nalanda Dhamma School facilitators, students and their parents gathered at Nalanda Centre for the annual “Appreciation & Honours Day”. This was one of the most important events in School calendar as it was a day for everyone to reflect and rejoice in their effort and commitment to learning throughout the year.
The evening began with a procession of facilitators and students, accompanied by the sound of bells and rhythmic beating of drums. In his speech, Nalanda founder Bro. Tan expressed his joy in seeing the development of the School over the years. Both the enrollment and quality of teaching have been growing from strength to strength. School Director Sis. Sunanda Ong reminded students not to take Dhamma for granted, as opportunities to learning it rarely appear.
Among the highlights of the event was the commendation ceremony where certificates, medals and prizes were presented to students in recognition of their achievements. This year, the ‘Dhammavijaya Challenge Trophy’ went to students of Naga House for their excellent performance.
