Special Event - Year 4 at the Buddhist Vihara

9 February 2017

On Thursday 9th February 2017, Year 4 visited the Birmingham Buddhist Vihara, where we met the Buddhist Monk and learnt about the life of the first Buddha and what Buddhists believe in.

We looked at important symbols and replicated the wheel by standing in a circle and holding hands, representing that we are all connected.

Children developed a deeper understanding of the importance of meditation and had a go themselves.

Thank you to Birmingham Buddhist Vihara for making us feel so welcome. Well done to the children who behaved so maturely during the visit.
