The Wat Buddhanusorn Sunday School was founded in 1983, just three month after the temple was established.
The main purpose of the school is to teach and promote Thai culture, language and art for Thai youth and those who are interested. The teaching stuff consists of local volunteers and instructors from Chulalongkorn University of Thailand. Wat Buddhanusorn Sunday School consists of three departments; Thai Language Department, Thai Classical Music Department, and Thai Classical Dance Department.
The Wat Buddhanusorn Sunday school seeks to instill in Thai children in the U.S. an understanding and pride of their Thai heritage. We have continued to provide education through its Sunday School program, still with considerable attendance twenty years after it was established. We have been actively giving performances, presentations, classes, and workshops since its founding in 1988.
