Dhamma Classes for Children

Program for 2019

The Buddhist Discussion Centre Australia conducts introductory classes in Buddhism for children which are offered in association with the World Fellowship of Buddhists Standing Committee on Women.

The purpose of our classes is to offer children an introduction to attitudes and behaviours recommended in Buddhist Teachings to help them live a happy life.

In 2019, the Centre will conduct nine classes for children accompanied by at least one of their parents.

Children and their families will have the opportunity to learn about the story of the Buddha, be introduced to Buddhist Teachings such as mindfulness and generosity, participate in guided meditations, learn Buddhist songs and do activities such as colouring in and crafts.

The inclusion of an accompanying parent with each child is to support the learning of the children beyond the classroom environment. The classes will be led by Members of our Centre who are school teachers and hold a current Working with Children Check.

Three blocks of classes will be held on Saturdays from 11am – 12 midday throughout the year on the following dates (TBC):

Term 1: 16th March, 23rd March, 30th March

Term 2: 18th May, 25th May, 1st June

Term 3: 24th August, 31st August, 7th September

Classes are offered free of charge. Children can join in any time, it is not necessary to attend every class to benefit.
