Year 8 were very excited to welcome Alysun Jones to their Religion, Ethics and Philosophy (REP) lessons this week. Alysun is a lay Buddhist, and she kindly gave up her time to share some of her personal experiences of living according to Buddhist principles.
Students were extremely interested in hearing about how Alysun prepared for taking the Precepts by stitching her own robe and practising meditation. She then led us through some simple mindfulness exercises, having lit a candle and some incense.
I know we all understand Buddhism a little better after this enriching visit, thanks to Alysun!
