"The emphasis of this school is to teach the noble qualities of loving kindness and universal responsibility. We are not trying to change these children, but to awaken and nurture their own deepest qualities – their innate sense of loving kindness and compassion and their own natural tendency towards positive behaviour."

Geshe Konchok Tsering School Founder

Welcome to the first primary school in Australia to offer an education based on Buddhist principles.

One of only three schools of its kind in the world, the Daylesford Dharma School opened in 2009 under the spiritual mentorship of H.H. The Dalai Lama and is now a thriving school community.

Our curriculum emphasises academic achievement informed by time-honoured Buddhist practices including mindfulness, conflict resolution, care of the environment and compassion for all beings.

This open-minded approach has proved to be highly effective, resulting in levels of academic achievement that exceed Australian standards.


“I consider education to be an instrument. Whether that instrument is used rightly or wrongly depends on our basic human motivation…”

~ His Holiness The Dalai Lama
