Year 7 pupils discover more about Buddhism at Llandudno centre
25th February 2016

A group of Colwyn Bay school pupils visited a nearby Buddhist Centre as part of their Religious Studies curriculum.

The Year 7 class at Rydal Penrhos visited the Kalpa Bhadra Buddhist Centre in Craig-y-Don on Tuesday, February 9, where they learnt more about the religion and the principles surrounding Karma.

Upon their arrival, the pupils were greeted by Kelsang Dragden, a Buddhist nun, before being told of the story of Buddha and got an insight into what Buddhists do on a daily basis to attain as much good Karma as they can.



They were then given tips on meditation and how this can relieve stress, before participating in exercises involving breathing techniques.

Gabriella Murphy, Religious Studies teacher and head of lower school, said: “This is the third year that I’ve run this particular trip and the pupils were exemplary in their behaviour and attitude as usual.

“They were a credit to the school and once again the nuns were very impressed with the attentiveness and overall conduct.”

Pupil Joshua Peevor, aged 11, added: “It was a very interesting trip because it was so different to the Methodist community at Rydal Penrhos, and I really enjoyed it.”
