Students and staff marked tomorrow’s Visakha Bucha Day at Panyaden today with a presentation by our P4 class who told us that this special day honours the birth, enlightenment and passing of the Buddha. Our guest, Phra Palad Sunthorn Tee-Pa-Go from Wat Thao Kham Wang talked about the significance of Visakha Bucha Day then led the school on a traditional wien tien ceremony.
Holding flowers, candles and incense we quietly walked clockwise three times around our Buddha Sala, before laying down our offerings at the foot of the school’s Buddha image.

Today Panyaden School welcomed all parents and friends who joined us for the Dhamma talk by our spiritual advisor, the Venerable Ajahn Jayasaro who spoke about the principles of Buddhist education. The session was a good opportunity for our new parents to ask Ajahn Jayasaro questions and better understand our school’s educational approach.
Panyaden welcomed all new parents and their children to our school yesterday with an orientation session led by our Founder, School Director and Head Teachers. Other staff, teachers as well as committee members of Friends of Panyaden (FoP) were also on hand to answer questions and acquaint the new parents with our school practices and policy. We look forward to the start of the next school year with our new schoolmates on Tuesday!
