On Saturday 22 October, Nalanda Free School held its annual ‘Appreciation Day’ to honour all its volunteer teachers who have lovingly given their time and effort to educate the community.  The occasion also provided an opportunity for students to show their gratitude and appreciation to their teachers.  Some students came up with a dance performance which greatly amused everyone present.

The evening started with meditation.

Nalanda Free School was established in 2010 with an initial enrolment of 128 students.  It aims to provide free but quality academic tuition to needy students.  Today, the School has grown to an enrolment of 550 secondary and primary students in 38 classes, held in Sri Serdang, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru.

We would like to thank our awesome band of 40 committed teachers and volunteers who have always given your best to our students.  The community is forever grateful to you!
