On Sunday 15 March, Nalanda Dharma School (N.D.S.) marked another important milestone with the opening of the much-anticipated ‘Nalanda Junior Dharma School’ based at Nalanda House, Sri Serdang. This is the fourth Dharma School operated by Nalanda, following the establishment of N.D.S. in 2005, the Junior School in Happy Garden, and the recently-opened teenagers school in Johor Bahru.
In Sri Serdang, the Junior Dharma School is specially catered for older children aged 10 to 12. On the first day of School, the Honorary Secretary of Nalanda Buddhist Society Bro. Pee Che Yong was invited to officiate the commencement session by ringing the School bell. Bro. Pee warmly welcomed the new students and remarked that he was happy to see the growth of N.D.S. over the past decade, and has now spread its wings to Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru. He advised the students to learn Dhamma well and be good, noble persons.
The Director of Nalanda Dharma School Sis. Sunanda gave a spirited sharing to the students with live demonstrations. The fun ice-breaking games were enjoyed by students and facilitators alike. We rejoice over the good effort of the School Facilitators in guiding the students on the path of learning and practising the Dhamma. Sadhu anumodana!
