New building for Buddhist College of Singapore
THE Buddhist College of Singapore located at Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery in Bishan will have a new building by 2014.
The new premises at the monastery will include a new library, computer room and student hostel which can house up to 200 students. Currently, the school, which is Singapore's first tertiary college of Buddhist Studies, only has 80 students at a time.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the new building as well as for the monastery's new carpark was held today at its grounds.
The new carpark, to be completed by early 2014, will increase the monastery's parking space from 100 to 270 lots.
