TCV Chauntra Gandhi JayanthiRecently a year back, the prime minister of India, honorable Narendra Modi gave a new look and a sensible way of celebrating and honoring the man of vision and humanity by working on some of his key messages, most importantly as he believed cleanliness as next to godliness. Here in our school, we had series of programs throughout the day organized by our social science teachers in co operation with others and marked the day not only by wishing but also took the chance of thanking India.We had our morning function at 8:45 a.m where the chairperson, English and social science committee Mr. Choetop Tashi was the announcer and right after the national anthem of both the countries, he called upon the chief guest of the day,

Later we had the introductory speech by Mrs. Karma Yangkey, social science teacher. She introduced the reason behind marking the day and shown a great effort in bringing back some of the memories of him along with his noble messages.Soon after that we had the privilege to move into a completely new milieu that is filled with appreciation, honor and loyalty as one after other we had poetry recitation and patriotic songs to tribute the man and the nation.

To conclude the morning function, lastly we had the speech by the chief guest.

One such program we had that day was cleaning the school campus as an act of making India clean and most importantly the act of gesture to thank our Indian brothers for their genuine support and sincere hospitality. Many of our senior students along with their subject teachers under the direction of the school management went up to clean the market areas and made a little difference in keeping India clean and to pay hearty thanks to the local for their continuous support.

Every single thing that we did had brought at least joy and pleasure in the hearts of every single student and staff that were part of the program and had sawn some seeds that bore promises, and they surely will blossom in the years to come.

Parents Teachers Meeting

TCV Chauntra Parents Teachers Meeting
Parents and teaches play the most important role in the life of a child whether to guide, give advice, moral support or understand them. Therefore, it is essential for these two personalities to meet and discuss on the pros and cons of the child.

TCV Chauntra Parents Teachers Meeting
Our school is no different from other schools regarding this case. Thus, on 7th August, 2015, we had conducted PTA meeting under the supervision of our school principal. During this, the parents were made to know the passing and promotion system of TCV, what rules to be followed by the students and parents and so on. Teachers got the opportunity to discuss their students with their parents and also had the chance to understand students better through their parents. The meeting was grand, meaningful, useful and effective for both the parents and teachers in guiding the students for better and further.

Trekking Class X

Trekking can be viewed from two different stand-points; as an intense physical exercise, or an amazing and unique learning experience.

This year once again the teachers and the students of class X chose Billing Top as their camping spot and spent an overnight. It was an adventurous and a memorable trip filled with fun and laughter mixed with hard work and challenges. Students were able to seek first hand experiences with joy and had great time exploring various untouched environments there.Bir is a small village 

surrounded by big mountains famous for paragliding in himachal Pradesh. It is known for Hang gliding and paragliding both, which serves as a landing ground for paraglide. Bir-Billing in the Dauladhar mountain range is known as one of the finest aero sports sites in the world.

Their launching destination ‘Billing’ is at (8500 ft) on the Dhauladhar ranges and highest aero sport site, 14-km distance from Bir. Bir billing is one of the nature wonders. This is perfectly designed as a launch pad, has become a legend on the international paragliding circuits and a destination for world champion paragliding pilots. The green meadow directly above the villages of Bir and Chauntra is one of the best gliding sites in the world. The massive Dhauladhar mountain range and the kangra valley below with its panoramic views offer opportunities for high altitude up and down and all over the world flying for more than 200-km. ( The Bir Billing has been a favourite trekking spot for our school children for the past 6 years).

We are glad and proud that they all had an experiential moment packed with wide scope of learning and for their safe return back to school with sound health.

Short Visit by Education Director

Honorable Mr. Sonam Sichoe, Education Director, T.C.V. paid a short visit to our school and spent two days out of his hectic schedule. During his stay, he visited various fields of education, care centers, school infrastructures and other facilities that are primarily meant to facilitate the upbringing of our children and the provision of both traditional and modern education.

 Later in the second day of his stay, a formal talk has been arranged. In this he touched on very trivial but important topics like the characteristic of a teacher, what we are building the students for, school as important source of education, political importance of TCV schools, and teachers as professional and so on. He further explained some of the key reasons he hold for making this short visit.

We all know that our schools are so rich in both co-curricular and curricular activities but we often carry a doubt whether having rich activities really help us to educate our children the way we as educators, parents and society wanted. We are able to achieve our goals to some extend as for the past few years we have been stressing on all round development of a child and adopted holistic approaches by developing varied curriculum that offers wide scope for our learners, but still we are not able to fulfill the desire of our community and immediately of the parents. 

Taking into consideration on the immediate need of the society and most importantly parents, he clearly mentioned that now it’s the time for us to focus more on academic results. Ultimately both society and parents will acknowledge our work only on the bases of our students’ academic result’ hence it becomes a challenge for all of us to produce hundred percent result in the coming years.  

Within the short period of his visit, he aggravated the people responsible to carry out the goals and missions set by the school and further enlightened in many other education fields. We the staffs and students of T.C.V. Chauntra are glad to have him around in our School and thank you.

Class VII English Book Fair

Book Fair normally serves as a holistic linguistic development and most significantly communicative skills leading to personal development. As per the school diary on 18th May class VII English Book Fair was held in the school Loter hall with pomp and much appreciation from the students and the staffs.

Every corner of the hall was packed with enthusiastic and welcoming students of class VII eagerly waiting to share their story with a story book in their hand. Throughout the program students were busy telling stories, hence to give them short breaks in between songs and video clipping on importance of reading were played.

Unlike last year this time we tried to put some innovations by organizing group story telling on volunteer bases and we had few effective story tellers from class VII. Feedback by one of the guest students from class IX and X during their round proved effective as it was completely a new experience to them and students are basically more connected to their age group and has higher level of acceptance.

The hard work and the sincerity of the respected students and teachers of class VII made it a successful program.
