Meal taking and food contemplation is compulsory for all secondary school students. After their lessons, the students will be led by their teachers to the dining hall to have a light meal. During the food contemplation, students will observe 10 minutes of silent and mindful eating. Students will only be allowed to leave the dining hall at 10.30am.
Mindful eating is an important aspect of Buddhist practice and we want our students to experience the joy of slowing down and appreciating the food they eat. Parents and guardians are welcomed to have your light meal too at the public seating area during this time.
If you have already arranged programmes for your child after 10.00am at the beginning of the year, please write a note to the class teacher to inform him/her.
