Santa Village Field Trip

In greeting America’s largest and most important holiday – Christmas, two teachers from the Buddha’s Light Private School and parents of the 4-5 years old students took them to the Christmas village for a field trip from 09:00 to 11:30 a.m. on December 12th, 2014.   The Christmas Village had many beautiful decorated cabins, post office, bank, horse-riding event, concert halls, pet shops, ATM, hospital, etc. Children could send a letter to Santa; measure their height and get their weight at the hospital; play musical instruments in the music hall; ride horses and experience how it feels on the horseback saddle; and practice using the ATM to make withdrawals.

On the streets of Christmas Village, we could see Santa Claus, snowman, polar bears, elk, and princess … and we were able to pose for pictures with them. Happy times always seemed to go by quickly.  In a blink of an eye, it was almost lunchtime, so we had to chalk up this field trip as another happy outing.

We're so glad that our son's at your school. We love that that teachers are loving, dedicated, responsible, and very experienced. They have taught him so much: not just academically, but also in terms of socially and behaviorally. Even though it's a Buddhist institution, we never felt that the religion is imposed on the children and families there, which for us who are not Bubbhists, is a good thing. Also, we love that both English and Chinese are EQUALLY taught and emphasized. Within one year of coming here, he went from not understanding a word of Chinese to be able to understand and participate everyday conversations in Chinese. The children regularly go on field trips around town, and also have events and parties within the school, which make it that much more exciting. Our son loves the teachers and the school, and we believe that we couldn't have picked a better place for him to grow up in. Thanks you BLPS!
