“I have always had this view about the modern education system: we pay attention to brain development, but the development of warm-heartedness we take for granted.”
~ His Holiness The Dalai Lama
Nurturing your child’s capacity to grow into a kind and wise individual.
The term ‘Dharma’ refers to the teachings of the Buddha. It means ‘protection of the mind to walk a noble path’, which is the true role of a school.
It also relates to the concept of right thought, right speech and right action – a central guiding principle of our school.
Our educational philosophy recognizes the interdependent nature of all life. This is the inspiration for our guiding principle of ‘non-harm’ that informs all aspects of our curricula and school community.
We pay particular attention to developing a child’s capacity to grow into a compassionate, kind and wise individual who understands their connection with the environment and with those around them.
We foster a sense of universal responsibility in each child, which will guide them in how they can shape their world and co-exist with others.
