Service to Schools


As part of its involvement with the wider community, Buddha House offers a special service to Schools and Youth Groups.

We cater for the range of students from primary years to high school level, especially those preparing their SACE requirements, and we can also be of assistance to tertiary students and other interest groups.

For those who wish to know about Buddhism for educational or informational purposes, a program to meet these requirements can be arranged.

Rather than simply presenting a lecture on Buddhism, an experienced, registered teacher offers, in consultation with the subject teacher, an interactive lesson which fits the assessment requirements of the student syllabus. This can range from revision to the presentation of completely new material and, if necessary, follow-up material is available after the lesson.

Students can also receive assistance with their individual assignments by computer.


We encourage groups to visit us at Buddha House, so that they can experience a little of an old culture relatively new to the West.

Some teachers like to include Buddha House on their list of yearly excursions. Most schools who use our help are Christian schools, but we welcome those from all faiths and other…groups.

We don’t have a set fee for this but, if it is possible for the school or club, a donation would be of use to assist our other activities in the community. If this is not possible, your visit will still be welcome.
