Student Groups

Student Division

The Student Division (SD) was established on 5th February 1984. It comprises students from the universities, polytechnics, junior colleges, institutes of technical education and arts schools. Besides striving towards academic accomplishment, members of the SD also actively foster themselves in both spiritual and intellectual growth.

SD members aspire to become successors of Soka and persons of humanism who can contribute to the society at large. The division’s activities include Buddhist studies as well as educational projects aimed at cultivating good reading habits, wide interests and general knowledge of all fields of learning.

Future Division

The Future Division (FD) was established on August 21st, 1993.  It comprises student members from all levels in secondary school. FD members are fostered as the successors for the future. Activities are aimed at developing their strength of character and leadership capabilities for the important role they will play in the 21st century.

The division has held its own musical such as “The King and I”, which saw the display of various talents. Though young at age, these members are nevertheless serious in their Buddhist faith and practice as they remain earnest in their studies.

We live in troubled and uncertain times. I hope, therefore, that you, our future division members, will one day step forward and be the light of a hopeful new dawn for global society.

Primary Division

The Primary Division (PD) was established in August 1993. It comprises primary school students aged from 7 to 12 years who are also known as “Lion Cubs”.  Since 2003, this division has been under the care of a group of dedicated Women Division leaders and members lovingly called the Sunshine Aunties.

PD children attend monthly activities that are held at the comfort of members’ homes island wide. Through these gatherings, the children’s creativity is set free, talents are displayed and strong bonds of lasting friendships are forged.
