Suitable for children aged 4 to 12, the class meets every two weeks and will include engaging and effective activities such as mindfulness games, Buddhist story-telling, meditation and activities on emotional well-being.

 About the classes

  • The class will be divided into two: Age 4-9 (pre-school and lower primary) and Age 10-12 (upper primary)
  • All lessons will be in English and Mandarin, so your children will get to practice and be exposed to some Mandarin
