Year 4 Enjoy a trip to the Buddhist Temple

Wat Buddhapadipa is a Thai Buddhist temple in Wimbledon. It was the first such temple to be built in the United Kingdom. It is home to monks and nuns, but welcomes visitors of any faith to view the grounds and temple and the year 4 girls were lucky to visit this beautiful oasis of calm this week.

The girls enjoyed walking around the gardens and seeing the temple itself – its white exterior walls are in contrast to the red and gold colours of the roof and decorations of the frames of the windows and doors. Inside the temple hall, the walls are covered with paintings showing the life of the Buddha—from his birth to his death, and the girls heard a little about the Buddhist religion from one of the monks.

It was a wonderful outing and the girls enjoyed a little quiet time in the serene grounds before returning to a busy day at school.
