Nalanda Dharma School Interviews

Nalanda Dharma School celebrated its 7th Anniversary on 1 January 2012 at Nalanda Centre. In conjunction with this year’s celebration, we asked some of the School members to give their personal views on the School.

Bro. Ooi Choong Li, Facilitator
Nalanda Dharma School complements the needs for the development of a healthy teenager, acknowledging each as an individual and helping them see the possibilities of greatness. It is also the place of refuge as they tread along their path to spiritual awakening. Wishing all facilitators, students and parents true joy in the process of learning and growing together.

By sending children to Nalanda Dharma School, we let them have the precious chance to learn the Dharma. They also become more independent as they pick up leadership skills. We hope Nalanda Dharma School will continuously provide this avenue for the children to practice the Dharma and develop their character.

At the Dharma School, the focus is on student development and as such, it provides a sound foundation and good values for children. On a personal note, my two daughters have benefited greatly and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found Nalanda Dharma School at the right stage of their lives!

I started attending the School at the age of 15, then a shy and quiet kid. I’m now 21, and taking charge of group projects in my varsity. My experiences at Nalanda will be etched in my heart forever, and I will continuously strive to better myself. As Bro.Tan said, “If better is possible, good is never enough”!

The School has always been a second home to me ever since I stepped into this auspicious place at the tender age of 13. I’ve experienced the different approach to Buddhist education adopted by Nalanda towards educating the young, which is, “the education of the heart is the heart of education”!
