INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST DRUG ABUSE AND ILLICIT TRAFFICKING


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.

Dolma Tsedon ( A night long prayer session )


TCV Chauntra Dolma Tsedon
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


TCV Chauntra Summer Fete
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.

MATH DAY


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 organized 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 organization and participation.
Well done, Folks!

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


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!
