Dhamma School students are evaluated on their performance throughout the year.

On Sunday 1 November, 50 students aged between 13 and 17 years old sat for the annual Nalanda Dhamma School examination.  They were tested on their basic knowledge of Buddhist scriptures, including ‘Dhammapada’ verses in Pāli Language, and devotional chanting, following 10 intensive study sessions which started in September.

The mission of Nalanda Dhamma School is to ensure that its students acquire Buddhist knowledge; skills; values and culture, and are well-grounded in the Dhamma.  Besides sitting for the examination, the students are also evaluated on their participation, behaviour, and attitude during the course of the year.
