1 May 2013 was a special day for all Nalandians as we celebrated the Society’s 10th Anniversary! This milestone was significant as we recognised the growth and success of Nalanda as a Buddhist education provider over the past decade. Nalandians also aptly reflected with immense gratitude and appreciation for all the support, contributions and voluntary services by many devotees near and far, who have helped to forge Nalanda, in order for it to become the excellent facility that it is today. Thank you very much, and sadhu anumodana! Read more
On Sunday, 7 April, Nalanda leaders had a plenary session to discuss Nalanda Macro 2014-2015. Nalanda Macro is an important document published annually which outlines the programmes and objectives of all divisions and departments for the ensuing period. This plenary session was facilitated by Honorary Secretary Sis. Buddhini, and attended by the President, Deputy President, Treasurer, Members of the Board, Divisional Directors, and Heads of Departments.
1 May is designated ‘Nalanda Day’; it marks the 9th anniversary of Nalanda’s founding. On this day, Nalandians congregated for morning devotion at the Shrine Hall, before gathering in the Srivijaya Hall, where important Society events are usually held.
Among the many significant ‘news’ for the day were the launchings of Nalanda’s revised website, our new uniform, our first vehicle – a reconditioned, used-van generously donated by Mr. Chan Fong, and “Nalanda-Macro” – an important document outlining Nalanda’s Transformation Programme and our organizational goals for the next one year.
