Information for School Visits

School kids websiteKagyu Samye Dzong London has been welcoming school visits for many years. Every year about dozens of  school groups come to visit us.

The age of groups varies, and includes both primary and secondary school classes.  We are happy to welcome any age groups.

The school group tour will usually be lead by a member of the sangha resident here at the centre. We receive school visits on Wednesday and Thursday mornings between 10:30am and 12:00pm and they usually last up to an hour.

What you can expect during a school visit:
  • a warm welcome to the centre
  • an introduction to Buddhism and the essence of the Buddhist teachings
  • a brief simple guided meditation
  • Question and Answer time with the students

We ask schools to make a donation of their choice when visiting the Centre.
