On the last day of 2016, Nalanda Dhamma School Facilitators, students and their parents, alumni, volunteers and guests gathered at Nalanda Centre for the annual School Appreciation and Honours Day. It was an important event to celebrate the learning and progress of students throughout the year, and also to give thanks to teachers and parents who supported their learning.
The evening began with a colourful procession of facilitators and students into the Dhamma Teaching Hall, accompanied by the toiling of bells and beating of drums. In her speech, Dhamma School Director Sis. Sunanda Ong rejoiced in seeing the effort and growth of students through many learning opportunities and activities the whole year.
Following that was the highlight of the evening – the Awards Ceremony – where certificates, medals and prizes were presented to students to recognize their efforts, personal growth and selfless service towards the School. This year, the Dhammavijaya Challenge Trophy was won by Naga House, making it the fifth consecutive year they have bested Garuda House!
We congratulate Nalanda Dhamma School for 12 years of continuous growth and success. May the School community continue to shine for many more years to come.
