Tibetan monks visit local school

Monks will spend week at Miami Country Day School

MIAMI SHORES, Fla - Eight Tibetan monks have come all the way from India to South Florida to spend the week at a local school.

The monks are bringing their knowledge to Miami County Day School in Miami Shores this week.

According to the school, the monks will perform dances and deliver cultural and spiritual presentations to the students.

They will also work on creating a mandala, which we are told is intricate artwork created from sand. The mandala will honor world peace.

Miami Country Day School is a private school with kids preschool through 12th grade.
