We are hoping to deliver a comprehensive, collaborative and inspiring programme for children to enjoy values, morals and culture through mental development thus enhancing the quality, peace and progress in their blossoming lives. The School Programme is conducted according to a carefully prepared syllabus.
Venerable Akurala Samitha is fully co-ordinating this programme with his experience as Buddhist Representative of the Advisory Council to the UK RE National Curriculum. Dr Arosha Bandara also co-ordinates with the teaching sessions. Venerable monks and parents shall create a wonderful environment to interact with children and pay close attention individually to teaching them Ethics, Meditation, Moral stories and train them to be presenters and representatives for media and other public events. This is being designed in parallel to the SMSC (Social-Moral-Spiritual-Cultural) education programmes of the Modern UK National educational curriculum. Therefore, we would encourage all parents to contribute once a month, these ten days a year for the benefit of this worthy cause for their children.
All ages of children are welcomed. We will grade them according to the syllabus. This is widely open for all children from any religious, ethnic or linguistic background as we only emphasize the Moral Establishment, Peace, Respect and mental progress of the children through virtuous friendship (good association/ good environment).
