On Sunday 19 February, Nalanda Dhamma School organised an outing for facilitators and students to Taman Putra Perdana in Putrajaya.  104 teenagers and children from Sri Serdang and Kuala Lumpur branches spent a healthy and fun day out with their Dhamma friends, while learning the important values of good friendship and loving-kindness.

Stretching the limits.

The students were grouped into ten teams and competed in multiple relay-races which tested their courage, teamwork, and adaptability. School Director, Sis. Sunanda Ong, reminded students to become good friends by being helpful, loyal, and sympathetic towards one another.  The trip ended with group reflection and discussions, where students recollected key learning points for the day.

Having fun with games and great friends!
