Over the Christmas weekend from 24 to 26 December, Nalanda Dhamma School (NDS) facilitators went to Kuala Selangor for their three-day annual get-together.  This year, the 25 facilitators from Serdang, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru branches were joined by 10 Nalanda youths at the retreat.

Chanting, meditation, and reflection are part of the daily practice for Nalandians.

The programme was filled with fun, learning activities.  Facilitators had a reflective time reviewing the School’s progress in 2016, as well as chart its course for 2017.  The facilitators and youths also relished outings to the beach, where they bonded through activities and got to know each other better.

It was a welcomed break from their daily routine and everyone enjoyed the 3-day retreat immensely.  The young Nalandians were fully recharged and ready to continue their selfless service in providing holistic education throughout the new year!  We wish them the best in performing the ‘miracle of education’ in the coming months.

We wish our earnest facilitators the very best in performing the ‘miracle of education’!
