Dear Parents,

Due to the current COVID 19 situation in WA, the SLSBS Committee, with the advice of Maha Sanaga, has made a decision to postpone the commencement of Dhamma School at the temple premises, till Sunday, 28th February 2021. However, Dhamma School will commence for the first time in 2021, on coming Sunday (7th February 2021) as planned. The lessons will be conducted via Zoom meeting, starting from 3.45 pm, on Sunday 7th February 2021. The Zoom meeting link will be circulated via Dhamma School email for the registered students.

Meantime, we kindly request all the new students to submit registration forms (though the link provided in below email) in order to get the Zoom link via Dhamma School email communications.

We hope you all understand the reasons behind this decision and your patience is very much appreciated at these difficult times.

Theruwan Saranai
