Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple Trip

Totara and Pohutukawa


Dear Parents/Caregivers


Tōtara and Pōhutukawa have planned a trip to Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple. Students have an opportunity to learn about positive values, embrace cultural diversity in our community and encourage connectivity between others. This will support our Learning Languages Programme for Term 2 and build cultural awareness.


Date: Friday, 13 May

Venue: Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple, Flat Bush

Depart: 8:45 am

Return: 12:20 pm


Your child will need to bring:


  • Full school uniform
  • School jumper or rain jacket to keep dry and warm
  • Sunhat and sunscreen
  • A refillable water bottle
  • Morning tea
  • Medication such as asthma inhalers or epi pens


The total cost of this trip will be $8.00 per student which is to cover the expense of the buses. By making payment via the Kindo app, you are giving permission for your child to participate on this trip.


We will need assistance with supervision for this group. Any support you can give would be most appreciated. If you are able to help please also indicate on Kindo.


Please advise any dietary (light refreshments will be provided), health, emotional concerns or issues that teachers need to be informed about to ensure your child’s safety.



Yours faithfully
