SPONSOR VISITED AT TCV CHAUNTRA


TCV Chauntra Sponsors
There are many people who like to donate things to the poor and needy because they are blessed with every comfort and know that others are struggling, but there are some people who don’t like to donate anything in their life for homeless people because they only live for themselves. It is everyone’s duty to give to help poor children who are less fortunate, though if you are helping someone in their need, then you are doing the right thing by providing them with the essentials. In this world it is a fact that whatever seed you sow, that’s the sort of fruit you’ll get. With this we are very fortunate to have a philanthropic who has sacrificed her 26 years sponsoring TCV School especially our school TCV School Chauntra Mrs. Margret Ayton and Mrs. Pam Purcell. On 17thoct, 2016 she had shared her real life story and the main purpose of helping our school and TCV as a whole.

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.
