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 behavior and attitude.
The aims and the objectives of this program are:
To let the children know and understand the main principles of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
To let the children engage in meaningful discussion about those principles.
To let the children implement those principles in their daily lives.
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 behavior, 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.
