Recently a year back, the prime minister of India, honorable Narendra Modi gave a new look and a sensible way of celebrating and honoring the man of vision and humanity by working on some of his key messages, most importantly as he believed cleanliness as next to godliness. Here in our school, we had series of programs throughout the day organized by our social science teachers in co operation with others and marked the day not only by wishing but also took the chance of thanking India.We had our morning function at 8:45 a.m where the chairperson, English and social science committee Mr. Choetop Tashi was the announcer and right after the national anthem of both the countries, he called upon the chief guest of the day,

Later we had the introductory speech by Mrs. Karma Yangkey, social science teacher. She introduced the reason behind marking the day and shown a great effort in bringing back some of the memories of him along with his noble messages.Soon after that we had the privilege to move into a completely new milieu that is filled with appreciation, honor and loyalty as one after other we had poetry recitation and patriotic songs to tribute the man and the nation.
To conclude the morning function, lastly we had the speech by the chief guest.
One such program we had that day was cleaning the school campus as an act of making India clean and most importantly the act of gesture to thank our Indian brothers for their genuine support and sincere hospitality. Many of our senior students along with their subject teachers under the direction of the school management went up to clean the market areas and made a little difference in keeping India clean and to pay hearty thanks to the local for their continuous support.

English Literary Week Celebration
Language learning is usually slow, gradual and a continuous process and external forces like school programs and classroom activities facilitate appropriate learning atmosphere and speedy language learning. 
Recently in the month of September, The school English Committee observed a week long English Week. The committee organized series of literary activities at different level of students. The prime objectives of observing English Week are to create English learning atmosphere, to create platforms to hunt different linguistic skills and to bring English under the spotlight.

Dearest TCV School Chauntra,
From the deepest point of my heart I would like to say Tashi delek to everyone of TCV School Chauntra. It was my pleasure to be a part of your family. Every moment we spent together was nostalgic. Now, the time to say good bye has finally arrived. As I’m very old now, my death will come any moment now. So I felt to write you before leaving you alone.
Oh!!! Some of you, new in this school might be wondering who I am. I’m the poor aged dog with three and half legs to whom you guys nick named three point five. I remember that I was also starred in a video clip by staffs for children’s day. Remember me? When I first joint this school, ten years back I was not like the way I’m right now. I used to be very tough and brave, which help me to earn love and fame from you people. And that day I promised myself, I would stay with you and protect you till my last breathe. We started our day together when you were busy on your own, I patrolled our school and I often helped Mr. Passang (The former gate keeper) to halt unknown people and dogs to enter our school. He was very fond of me. But at night, when you all were sleeping cozily I watched around our school campus frequently. I barked and howled to make you alert when I sensed danger. Everything was in order. Days zoomed and so does the years. But one fine day when I was crossing the road, all of sudden I met with an accident. My leg was crushed by the truck. The sudden unbearable pain in my leg triggered me to faint but before, I saw Mrs Tenzin Dolker rushing toward me and then everything went blank. Later when I got my consciousness back I found myself in a comforted place with fresh food and a bowl full of milk placed near me. But to my surprise I saw my leg amputated. I know it was all done to save me from dying of hemorrhage. That’s how I got three point five. My leg was half amputated. Madam la with co workers, nurtured me till I was in my best of health.
To every staff, I’m very grateful. To you all and it can’t be paid back in my entire life. I have never seen so much will and determination in people rather than you in my life. You give your two hundred percent to the students even if they misbehave. You people are truly worth appreciating and there is no word created to describe your perfectness. They owe you so much. I wish you’ll do the same till the end.
Students of TCV Chauntra, you guys have so much talents and skills. It’s all god gifted! But what you lacked is that you never focus on it and never do what teachers have asked to you.  Remember the simple saying “if you rest, you’ll rust”. Do not let down the staff of our school or else you might regret it later. When I was a disable I thought you will stop loving me, but I was wrong you gave me love more than before. Thank you all for those things.
Before dotting the final full stop I would like to thanks all and especially Mrs Tenzin Dolkar la. God bless TCV Chauntra.
He passed away couple of days after writing this letter.
