RMPS visit

On Tuesday 25th of February 37 pupils and 5 teachers from Kirkintilloch High School’s RMPS Higher and Intermediate 2 course visited the Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Samye Ling in Dumfries and Galloway.

The visit gave pupils an insight into the workings of a Buddhist Sangha (temple) where they discussed the religion, witnessed Buddhist chanting and drums and took part in some meditation before being shown around the temple complex. The visit was a very enjoyable social affair for all involved and, crucially, it will provide our pupils with some real life experiences to call upon in their final exams on the 26th of May and anecdotes for the future.
