Sunday Dhamma School



We would like to welcome you to the new Sunday Dhamma School at the Dharmapala Institute! We are pleased to introduce you and your children to a grace-filled year of growing in the Dhamma. The new classes will begin with the blessing of the Venerable monks and parents in January 2019. 
We would like to collect your opinion and thoughts to establish the best outcome from the Dharmapala Institute Dhamma School. If you wish to enroll your child/children to the Dhamma School, please fill out the attached pre-enrollment form and email us back at . Please kindly fill out a separate form for each child.

The overall objectives of the Sunday Dhamma School are:

  • Making the temple a comfortable and familiar place for the children.
  • Make the children interested in learning and listening about the Buddha’s teachings.
  • Sharing moral and behavioral values through Jataka stories.
  • Making the children familiar with a few Vandana Gathas.
  • Completing the basic reading, writing and grammar in Sinhala Language.
You as parents and caregivers are the most important people in teaching dhamma to your child. We are here to support you to continue on that journey and will be delighted to start this new service to our community.
With Metta,
The Organizing Committee
