Dhamma Education Content Update:
 
During the holidays, in Consultation with the Venerable Monks and the Tutorial Staff, I had summoned the coordinators to several discussions on the Education Content of the Dhamma School and about what steps we should take to improve and ensure the quality of religious instructions we impart to our children so they will embrace the most noble spiritual and religious values which form the core/substance of Buddha Dhamma.
 
With this in view, we conducted a day’s seminar for all the Dhamma School Teachers where our priorities were identified and Teaching of Buddhism in the context of the Canadian Socio-religious Environment were discussed thoroughly.
 
 I am pleased to announce that there was consensus that this year the Dhamma School will strive to do everything it could to promote the all important virtue of “Saddha” along with the four “Brahma Viharanas” Establishing in the minds of the young a spirit of unshakable Faith & Devotion (Saddha) will be given priority through every phase of instructions during the current academic year. Our Teachers and coordinators hope to bring you many innovative programs to help achieve our targets.
