As everyone believes that health is the first priority to happy life, so our school takes care of each student’s health be it in giving them the best diet, providing them with fresh water, advising them to stay in clean environment or providing them with comfortable place to sleep. Subsequently, we have been lucky enough to get support from different communities and organizations. From this, we have the honor of welcoming one of those organizations that is Himalayan Medical Team lead by Mr. Ravi Singh. They have been relentlessly helping us for the past few years in examining the health of every child. This year they came on 23rd April and stayed for two days.

Shoton festival is a celebration that mark the end of monk’s ‘Yarne,’ their hundred day summer retreat so as to avoid killings and earning demerits during that hundred days. After finishing these days, the local Tibetan laymen use to serve them yogurt, perform Tibetan opera and go for picnics etc. Therefore this festival is also called YOGURT festival.
In exile, Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts took the initiative in reviving this ancient festival. They would invite Tibetan artist from the different settlement to show Opera at Dharamsala.
His holiness the Dalai Lama suggested them to hold this festival in various settlements so that it can have a wider reach, especially among the youngsters.
