Energetic & wholesome service day for Family Dhamma School

Energetic & wholesome service day for Family Dhamma School

Learning as a family is not only joyful, but effective.

On Saturday 27 May, a total of 80 students and facilitators of Family Dhamma School had their first school outing at Wisdom Park, to cultivate family well-being and experience the joy of service.  Anchored in the morning communal chanting together with regular volunteers at Wisdom Park, the families fanned out across the grounds for learning activities.

The group also assisted the Green Warriors to plant 4 trees, with blessings for the trees to grow well and provide shelter to many beings, including Dhamma learners, in the future.  The children then had a question and answer session with Ven. Jayanando, a Malaysian monk, who was visiting Wisdom Park, whilst parents were led in a reflection session on their learnings that morning.

It was a fulfilling and wholesome day for the families, as they spent quality time together and encouraging each other.  We rejoice in their spirit of service and learning, and look forward to welcoming the Family Dhamma School back to Wisdom Park.  Sadhu anumodana!
