On Friday 15 January, seven teacher trainees from the Institut Pendidikan Guru (IPG) Kampus Ilmu Khas Buddhist Society visited Nalanda Centre on a familiarisation tour.  The trainees were accompanied by IPG Buddhist Society’s teacher-adviser Bro. Johnny Tan, and lecturer Bro. K. J. Teo.  They were hosted by Nalanda youths who received their guests warmly and made them feel most welcome.

The trainees were taken on a tour of Nalanda Centre and the Youth Centre.  The lecturers and trainees also took part in a Pūjā and chanting session, with Dhamma School Director Sis. Sunanda giving a sharing on the ‘Miracle of Education’. The visit was very fruitful as it has strengthen the bond between the two societies.  We thank our guests from IPG Buddhist Society for their visit and look forward to seeing them again in soon!
