CELEBRATION OF HIS HOLINESS THE 14TH DALAI LAMA’S BIRTHDAY
(6 JULY 2017)

On 6th July 2017, we celebrated one of the most blissful days of the year as it is the born day of our beloved His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. We started this auspicious day with a gathering of staff and students above class VII for Sangsol (incense burning) prayer.

The programme started at 8:00 and the actual function started at 9 am with a lighting of butter lamp by our school Principal, Mr. Passang Tsering la and offering of white scarf by the whole staff for His Holiness portrait.  The school Principal delivered the introductory speech. . He talked about the life history of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and his blessing to the whole world.

After that, the highlight of the event was the inauguration and the launch of the TCV School Chauntra’s LOTER NEWS which is to inform about the activities hot happenings in and around the school.  This month we brought the news in Tibetan and hopefully in the near future we would be able to alternate it with English. It’s a monthly news edition.

The ‘Readers of Dalai Lama’ is yet another programme which is going around in the school for whole year. This year, more than 100 students have participated in it and read different books of His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama. Some of the students did PowerPoint presentation on the books they have read and what they understood from it. 

The morning programmed ended with the vote of thanks speech by our school Headmaster Mr. Karma Tashi la. Overall it was a meaningful and time worth spent event.
The afternoon programmed started at 2:45 pm with a soccer tournament between Staff team and School Students’ team. The game ended with the victory of the School Student team with a score of 3 and 4 respectively.

On behalf of all the staff and students, I would like to wish His Holiness a happy, healthy and long life ahead.

FAMILY MEETING
Unlike other school here in Chauntra, all the staff members work collaboratively for the welfare of the children. Though the homes are basically in charge of the home mothers but the teaching and the non-teaching staff are also distributed to the homes to look after the children and help the home mothers.
So in every even months of the year, we conduct a family meeting at respective homes and hostels. Every staff is assigned to each and every hostel. This activity is especially for the students and teachers to build a strong relationship where students can share their problems and we can listen to them.
The agendas for these meetings are

  1. Education
  2. Health
  3. Discipline etc.

INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST DRUG ABUSE AND ILLICIT TRAFFICKING (26 JUNE 2017)
By resolution 42/112 of 7 December 1987, the General Assembly decided to observe 26 June as the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking as an expression of its determination to strengthen action and cooperation to achieve the goal of an international society free of drug abuse.
So building on the success of last year, the theme for 2017 is: “Listen First – Listening to children and youth is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe.” It is an initiative to increase support for prevention of drug use that is based on science and is thus an effective investment in the well being of children and youth, their families and their communities.
Therefore today during the morning assembly, the school’s Health Committee led by our Head Nurse, Mrs. Sonam Sangmo gave a talk with the power point presentation to bring awareness among our children about the harmful effects and the consequences of indulging in drug or substance abuse. The talk began with the introduction of this year’s theme and the related issues.
It was educative and informative for the children to think and avoid from involving and indulging in such disastrous activity.

A NIGHT LONG PRAYER SESSION OF GODDESS TARA-DOLMA TSEDON (24 JUNE 2017)
Every year the Cultural Committee of the school organizes some important prayers in the school and one among them is the night long prayer session of the Goddess Tara. Tara, who Tibetans call ‘Dolma’ is commonly thought to be a Bodhisttva or Buddha of compassion and action, a protector who comes to our aid to relieve us of physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.
Tara has 21 major forms, each of which has different color and spiritual attribute. Of these 21 forms, two are especially popular among Tibetan people – White Tara, who is associated with compassion and long life, and Green Tara, who is associated with enlightened activity and abundance.
So here in school we try to impart holistic education to our children. We are not only concerned about the children’s modern education but we also try to connect them spiritually. So this is one particular activity where the prayer starts from 7 p.m. in the evening and lasts till 6 a.m. the next morning in the school hall. The staff and children have 3-5 hours shift to complete the whole session.
The main aims and objectives of holding such prayer is

  • for long and healthy life of His Holiness the 14th  Dalai Lama
  • to save and protect ourselves from disease, fear, anxiety, suffering, disasters, troubles and negative karmas.
  • to overcome mental, physical and emotional blockages and also blockages in relationships.

SUMMER FETE (23 JUNE 2017)
The school organizes two Fetes in a year – one in spring and one in summer. The summer fete is yet again one of the most awaited events held in the month of June when school reopens for a fresh start right after the summer break. So this year too we had our school’s summer fete on Friday, 23 June 2017. The event is carried forward as same as the spring fete with the full cooperation from both the staff and the students.
Children enjoy and experience new dishes and involve in playing exciting games. The school organized the fete on the large football ground full with different stalls for the children to explore. The income that we receive from this particular event is spent on the school’s Cultural programs and related events.
Such event educates our children to be more self reliant, cooperative and motivate them to become a contributing member of the society. Children learn a lot of things under the guidance of the elders and by observing them.

OBITUARY
On Friday, 16 June 2017, Mr. Ugen Choephel, one of our senior Tibetan teachers passed away at the age of 61 after a brief illness. The news saddened the whole school and came as a complete shock to everyone of us. As soon as we heard about his sudden unfortunate demise, a prayer was held in the school hall and the staff members rushed to his staff quarter to console and help the deceased family. The school’s Staff Welfare Committee took the main responsibilities under the guidance of the school authorities and distributed the work among the staff members. Every one whole heartedly stood by the family in this unfortunate mishap.
It was finally today that his body was cremated at the auspicious and sacred place of Buddhist called ‘Tso Pema’, Rewalsar in Mandi District as per the Buddhist rituals.
He will always be remembered by each and every one of us here at TCV School Chauntra. Our heartfelt condolence goes to the family!

SUMMER BREAK (4 to 13 JUNE 2017)
The school closed for summer break from 4 to 13 June 2017. Actually as per the school diary it was scheduled from 1 to 10 June 2017 but at the last minute we had to reschedule it because of the His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s summer teaching for the youth.
So the Class 9 and 10 students had to go to Dharamsala to attend His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s three days teachings at the main temple Tsuglakhang from 5 to 7 June 2017. The students who stayed back in the school were taken to picnic by their respective Home mothers as per their own choice of the picnic spots. This is mainly done so that children who have come from far-away places and who are not able to go to their home to see their parents do not feel home sick. The children for sure thoroughly enjoyed their picnic.
Thanks to the school and to the home mothers for organizing and arranging such wonderful activity to the children!

KAGYUR READING (30 & 31 MAY 2017)
As per Buddhist calendar, every fourth month is observed as ‘Saka Dawa’ which began from 26 May 2017. It is one of the most sacred Buddhist festivals in which we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha Shakyamuni. The merits of any good deeds that you perform during this month are considered to be multiplied as one hundred thousand times and vice versa.
So every year during this month we do ‘Kangyur’ reading for two days which means we do reading of the Tibetan Buddhist sacred texts to remove and protect ourselves from all evil and bad spirits and most importantly purify one’s own mind and deeds. ‘Kangyur’ or ‘Translated Words’ consists of work in about 108 volumes supposed to have spoken by the Buddha himself.
The Staff read the scriptures in the school chapel where as the students above class 7 read them in their own respective classes. The main organizer of this event is the school Cultural Committee who shoulders the responsibilities of the refreshment and all.

FINAL INTER HOUSE CULTURAL SONG AND DANCE COMPETITION (27 MAY 2017)

Inter House Cultural Song and Dance Competition is indeed one of the biggest and the most awaited event in all the TCV schools. So here the final day has arrived to show case the talents and the preparation by each Houses.
The Chief Guest for the event was the Honourable President of TCV Schools, Mr. Thupten Dorjee accompanied by the TCV Education Director, the Village Director and the school Principals from the neighbouring schools.
This year the three esteemed judges were from TIPA – Tibetan Institute for Performing Arts. It had surely been a very difficult task for the judges to make the decisions as each and every item presented were outstanding. It was mandatory for every House to prepare four items each – two dances, one duet and a group song.
This year more than 500 students participated in this activity. The House masters’ and the students’ hard work was apparently visible during the real contest but as it is a competition one had to win and one to lose.

Thus this year the overall result was as follow
The first position was bagged by Triral House
The second position was bagged by Songtsen House
The third position was bagged by Trisong House
The fourth position was bagged by Nyatri House.
Congratulations to everyone. Your hard work really paid off!

MATH DAY (22 JUNE 2017)
Math Day is observed every year in the school to encourage and arouse interest in students to learn Math more. This year also the Math Committee organised different activities to make this day more enthusiastic and memorable for the learners. One among them is a complete new activity this year and it was the ‘Math Extempore’ for the senior classes. Every child had to have the knowledge about the Math terms and related issues. During the real contest, the serial numbers of the children were picked randomly and they were made to speak about the topic they got. This aroused excitement and made each and everyone responsible in the learning scenario. Most importantly it provided platform for everyone to speak and showcase their knowledge about Math.
The Junior section Math teachers organized ‘Math Quiz’ for those little children. They were very excited and shown keen interest in learning the subject.
In short the event went successfully well in terms of organisation and participation.
Well done, Folks!

VISIT OF THE EDUCATION DIRECTOR, MR. SONAM SICHOE (18-20 MAY 2017)

We are very fortunate to have the honourable Education Director of TCV School, Mr. Sonam Sichoe for three days’ short visit to our school. During his stay he had a very busy schedule throughout the days. He had different meetings and sessions with different sections and departments.

Day 1 : Meeting with the children of Class 7 and above. (Evening)

Day 2 : Meeting with the Math teachers (2nd period)

                   Meeting with the Primary teachers (3rd /4th periods)
Meeting with the Teaching Department (6 p.m.)

             Meeting with the Student Council (4th period)

He reminded everyone of us about our duties and responsibilities and inspired us to work harder keeping in mind the aims and objectives of TCV Schools. He also explained his purpose of his visit to the school. In short it was a successful and a constructive visit.

READERS OF DALAI LAMA
This is yet another on-going program in the school which is particularly to encourage children to read more books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to foster good moral behaviour and attitude.
The aims and the objectives of this program are:

  1. To let the children know and understand the main principles of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
  2. To let the children engage in meaningful discussion about those principles.
  3. To let the children implement those principles in their daily lives.
  4. To cultivate the reading habit in children.

This is actually a new reading club consisting of few teachers and children to begin with. The main responsibility of this program is shouldered by our two school Librarians. We have made mini groups of around 20 – 21 children with two teachers each. We are supposed to be book buddies. Whenever we meet and have mini sessions, we are going to talk and share about the books. Whatever we have understood and learnt from these books we are going to pass them on to others. Hopefully we would be able to bring changes in our day to day behaviour, attitude and thinking.

This will also help all of us to explore more about his books and get introduced to many other new books as well. The main function to facilitate this program will be done during the birth anniversary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama this year which falls on 6 July 2017. By that time we hope to cover as many books as possible and enlarge the groups further.

CLASS 10 TREKKING (29-30 APRIL 2017)

"Trekking is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. It usually takes place on trails in areas of relatively unspoiled wilderness."

Every year our school organizes a trekking program especially for the students of class 10 and the activity was carried out successfully on 29 and 30 April 2017. The children were accompanied by their class and the subject teachers. This year once again they chose Billing for their camping spot and they stayed overnight there.
Billing is a popular site for the paragliding for the both the Indians and the visitors from all over the world. It is located at 14 km north of Bir at an elevation of 2400 metres. Bir is a small village located on the west of Jogindernagar Valley in Himachal Pradesh in the north of India. It contributes endless beauty to the land of Himachal. The most prominent spot under this valley is the Billing.
Basically a trekking can be an intense physical exercise and a unique raw learning experience of handling difficult situations and circumstances. As presumed it was an adventurous and a memorable trip filled with fun and laughter mixed with hard work and challenges for the students as well as for the teachers. Students were able to seek first hand experiences with joy and had great time exploring various unexplored environment and wilderness.

TIBET OUR COUNTRY PROJECT (26 APRIL 2017)

Tibet Our Country Project is one of the prime activities in TCV Schools where children get to know a lot about our country, Tibet. This program is specially designed in such a way that children get to feel the true essence of the rich and the unique culture of our great nation. The key objective of organizing such program in the school is to educate and impart the knowledge in our children about our country and keep them connected with their roots.
So here in our school TCV School Chauntra, the conclusion day function was held on 26 April 2017 on the very auspicious day of Lhakar, ‘the White Wednesday’ after almost a month long research, study and preparation.
The day started with the incense burning prayer (SANGSOL in Tibetan) at 7 a.m. in the morning. It was soon followed by the presentation on this particular ritual by the students of class 3. After the prayer the staff members and children participated in the traditional circular dance called ‘Gorshey’. It was indeed a very special morning to all of us.
The focus area of this year’s program is ‘SECULAR ETHICS’. Every class had to do research, learn and prepare presentations either directly or indirectly related with it particularly. The program covers a wide range and varieties of topic presentations that it was not possible to complete in one day. As every topic is important, the school administration decided to provide opportunities to every class to display and showcase their activities during the morning assembly. Every class participated as according to their own class level and as per their age group. There are dramas, songs, power point presentations and whole lot as such the program is still on the go.
Hopefully we shall be able to give a complete conclusion to this special program within this week. Happy learning everyone and be proud of your country and your nation!!!

HIMALAYAN HEALTH CARE PROGRAM (17-19 April 2017)

“Health is wealth.” As saying goes we consider our children’s health our first priority. So for the last couple of years we are honored and privileged to receive constant help from the Himalayan Medical Team lead by Mr. Ravi Singh in maintaining proper health of our children. This year too they were here in the school premises for three days. During these three days they did thorough check up of all the children and dealt with all kinds of problem such as dental, eye etc. The staff members could also enjoy the benefit.
Their contribution to the school is of course no doubt ‘KINDNESS IN ACTION’ in practical. We appreciate and acknowledge their assistance, support and contribution to the school. Thus we extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every doctor who was here in the school and special thanks goes to Mr. Ravi Singh for his selfless and compassionate act towards the school.
Their visit ended with the variety show, the song and dance performances by the children. The children who stayed back during the winter vacation in the school gave the most number of performances. We would like to thank once again to each and every member of this team. We hope to have you in the near future too.

CHANGES IN SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION (15 April 2017)
TCV School Chauntra yet again experienced another huge change in the school administration section. Today at 12 noon, all the staff and the children gathered in school hall to attend a special function or a ceremony for the valediction of the outgoing Headmaster Mr. Dawa Gyatso who had served this school since the year 2004. He has dedicated almost thirteen years service to this school. During these years he had worked for the welfare of the children and the staff. He was a good, understanding and approachable leader. He was specially very close and caring towards the children.

We would like to wish him all the best of luck for his future endeavor and hope his leadership will grow and flourish for the betterment of the children and the school.
On this very occasion we were also introduced to our new Headmaster and Assistant Headmaster of the school. Thus we are honored to have our former Assistant Headmaster, Mr. Karma Tashi for our new Headmaster and Mr. Choetop Tashi, the Social Science teacher of senior section as our new Assistant Headmaster.
Mr. Karma Tashi is one of the most senior staff members of this school. He has served this school for more than 27 years. He joined this school as a teacher in 1990 and worked as Assistant Headmaster since 1997. He is obviously the most experienced and most well deserved candidate for this post.
Mr. Choetop Tashi, the new Assistant Headmaster has served this school since 2005 as a social teacher. He has off and on been the Chairperson of different committees in our school. Therefore he has experience and good leadership qualities.

DEAREST STAFF MEMBERS

losrp

              Lobsang Rapgyal 10 ‘S’


My parents passed away,
They left me in this huge world,
Thought my relatives cares me
But failed to teach me the meaning of life.

You all have done very great things,
For me and students like me,
This I’ll never ever forget in my entire life,
Your motivation has built my faith stronger towards you.

With love you care me,
Taught everything that is under your patient,
Provided me with intelligent to distinguish,
What to do and what not to do?

You had always stand and fulfilled my wish,
Now that poor boy (me) is proud and contented,
Without you parents as he possess TCV Chauntra,
Staff as his parents
Without you all the staff, what I am today would not be possible.

As it is the rules and regulation of a school or our fate,
So, after one month I am again going to depart from my parents,
Pain is very hard to bear or put up with,
Impermanent world never let me
Do as my wish.

I will never forget my family (Chauntra)
Always live by your advice,
I will do that which will bring great pleasure to every being.

In this world of emptiness,
Everything appears to us in illusion.
Due to the cause of law and effect,
May god shower my family (TCV chauntra) with bright future a head.
