Dhamma School was the first major activity started by BUBS after the Society's incorporation in July 2000, and it has remained one of the Society's core activities since. Open only to the children of BUBS members, the Dhamma School strives to develop an understanding of the Dhamma amongst its young students. Currently, we have an enrolment of more than 300 students aged 4 to 17. There are altogether 11 classes taught by 22 volunteer Dhamma teachers and 4 SIG (Special Interest Group) teachers.
Classes. Dhamma classes are held on Sundays from 9.00 am to 10.30 am. Different teams of refreshment volunteers provide light refreshment to the students after class.
Intake. There are two intakes a year, one in January and another in June.
Special Interest Group (SIG) Classes. Besides the regular Sunday Dhamma classes, extra-curricular classes are also arranged for our Dhamma School students. These are held after Dhamma School ends. SIG classes currently available are public speaking, first aid, drama, art and craft, and hymn singing.

The Dhamma School tries to provide a fun and conducive environment for the young to learn and practise the Dhamma. The school is run entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers who share the vision of inspiring the young through the sharing of the Dhamma.
