EDUCATION TOUR TO AMRITSAR


Education tour or trip means more than simply leaving the school ground. It is one of the most significant events both for the school and the students. It is important and essential because of the following reasons.

  • It gives opportunity for the children to build closer bonds with their classmates.
  • It provides them to experience new environments and enjoy a day away from the classroom.
  • It gives students exposure to the places they might not otherwise visit.
  • It enforces them to connect the classroom lessons to the real world etc.

So this year the class teachers and the subject teachers of class 9 collaboratively initiated to take their students for the one day educational trip to the holy city of the Sikhs – Amritsar to visit the Golden Temple. Not only that they also visited the Pushpa Gujral-Science City, Jalandar. It was a large centre with lots of adventurous parks and planetarium, boating facility etc.

Overall, it was a lot of learning in one day! Both the teachers and the students enjoyed the excursion to the fullest.

The time scheduled to this activity was 9 to 10.30 a.m. for Tibetan and from 11 to 12.30 a.m. for English. Each class level had different topics to deal with. The students got a very opportunity to express their views and opinions on the topics they were allotted.

The writing was organized in the school hall and the main responsibilities were taken by the respective subject committee Chairpersons. The school authority and the other teachers equally extended and contributed their help and support in creating this program a successful one.

English Week

tcv chauntra english week

tcv chauntra english weekEnglish language learning is essential and important for many reasons. It is the language which majority of the people use to communicate with one another. It is the language which is used in most of the resources from where we get lot of knowledge and information such as the book, internet etc.
Thus to make children learn the language easily the teachers do perform lot of activities in their respective classrooms but to bring more awareness among the children every year we observe this one day in a year as ‘English Day’.
This year it was observed on 18 September 2017 but the preparation for this day was started more than a month before under the guidance of the English and Social Committee Chairperson, Mr. Tenzin Dhondup la.
The day started with the singing assembly. Children from class 3 to 10 have participated in this program. The morning assembly was specially held on the football ground and the children along with the English teachers sang two songs namely, ‘Kindness’ and ‘Mr. Manners Matters’ with actions. Everybody loved this.
Then we had the Inter Class 9 and 10 English Extempore Contest, followed by the Inter Class 7 and 8 Spelling Bee Contest. In the afternoon we had the Favorite Character Ramp Walk and finally the Nursery Rhymes presentation by the class 6 and below.
The programs went very well and smoothly. More than 500 children participated in the activities. The power packed performances of the children made it even more enjoyable and memorable. Thanks to each and everyone who lent their helping hands in making this a great event.

The legend states that he was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon which took place in August or September, 490 B.C. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly, exclaiming, “We have won!” before collapsing and dying.

4. Instills survival skills

tcv chauntra science dayScience, as a subject is universal and knows no boundaries. People at present live in the ‘Age of Science’. It is taught in the schools to turn our children into intelligent citizens who can appreciate and enjoy the beauty and wonder of nature. To make them efficient in all walks of life and should take delight in the wealth of culture of past generations and civilizations.

PARENTS-TEACHERS’ MEETING


The Parents and teachers’ meeting is also considered one of the pivotal programs of the school because our children they mostly spend their time here in the school away from their own home. The school takes the major responsibilities of educating and the development of the overall growth of the children. Yet the parents’ contribution is also significant. They also need to know and should involve in the children’s growth. They need to update where their children are in terms of mental, physical and academic status.

We hope to organize such meetings minimal of two times in a year in each term. So the meeting of the First term was held on 8 September 2017. We are happy to announce that this time there were quite a lot of parents who came to take part in it. As compared to last year the number was much increased. This shows that the parents nowadays are aware of their own responsibilities of the growth and the development of their children.

The meeting started with the speech by the school Principal, Mr. Passang Tsering la. He shared about the school facilities, activities, and mainly about the remodeled assessment scheme of Class 10, Board Examination 2017-18. The school Headmaster Mr. Karma Tashi la read out the SA-1 result.

After that the parents individually met with their children’s class and subject teachers and were able to enquire about their children everything in detail. The meeting went very well.

Staff Day


tcv chauntra staff day

tcv chauntra staff daySince 1962, 5th September all over India is celebrated as ‘Teacher’s Day’ in the loving memory of the former President of India Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was born on 5th September 1888. He was a famous teacher, academic philosopher and the second President of India. 

In TCV schools, we have a unique culture of celebrating it as ‘Staff Day’ because we believe that in the upbringing and overall growth of children it’s not only the teachers who work hard but the other staff members put equal effort and contribution in making our them better human beings and a self reliant people. On the reciprocal, it is the day where the students get the opportunities to showcase their feelings of gratitude towards their teachers and the staff members for their hard work.

The ‘Staff Day’ this year was as good as it used to be. The children lead by the school captains and the prefects made the day a memorable for all. The day started with the morning function, with a few song and dance items, followed by the delicious meals and football tournament between the staff member teams and the evening variety show.



Overall it was a fun-filled and action pact day. We want to thank our ex-students for all their lovely messages and good wishes. All our children in and outside Chauntra made us feel so special. Thanks to each and every one of them.
