The World Hepatitis Day is observed on 28 July every year to bring the world together under one single theme to bring awareness of the global burden of the deadly viral hepatitis and to influence real change.

At the 69th World Health Assembly held in Geneva, 194 governments adopted WHO’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C in the next 13 years. The community responded by launching NOhep, the first ever global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.

So this year TCV School Chauntra under the direction of the Department of Health (CTA) Central Tibetan Administration and our school’s Health Committee carried out the following activities to make this day a meaningful & educative and informative to everyone. As the children below class 8 were having their exams, the 9 and 10 students could only participate in them. The activities were Art and Essay competition and a short distance marathon. The junior students were also made aware of the day and its significance by putting up posters around the school corridors. They were access to the information from these display charts and the slogans.

Choekhor Duechen

‘Choekhor Duechen’ in Tibetan is the festival of ‘Turning the Wheel of Dharma’ is one of the four major Buddhist holidays. It occurs on the fourth day of the sixth Tibetan lunar month. This was when Buddha after attaining his enlightenment, he turned the Wheel of Dharma and preached his sermon for the first time, at Sarnath, Varanasi (India) by teaching the ‘Four Noble Truths’.

So here in our school we commemorated the event with a grand (SOL-TSOG) offering to Buddha acknowledging his kindness to have turned the Wheel of Dharma to protect all sentient beings from delusions and sufferings. This grand religious ritual was organized by our school Cultural Committee and children above class 7 and the staff members participated in it.

“Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures.”

-By His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

TCV Chauntra  Animal Club
As quoted above, His Holiness always says that we need to care and have concern for others’ well being as we care for ourselves. Parallel to this here in TCV Chauntra we have a very special committee called ‘Dog Care Club’ who looks after the stray dogs in the school. It is one of the oldest clubs in our school lead by Mrs. Tenzin Dolker, our senior Science teacher. It has been more than a decade since she has been looking after the dogs in our school premises. She takes the main charge and the responsibility and she is backed by some of our students who volunteer to help her in this mission. The task they perform is extremely commendable and is not everyone’s cup of tea. They risk their own safety to create a healthy and disease free environment for others.

Here are some of the things they do beside their daily chores

to vaccinate the dogs against rabies, parvo-virus.

to treat dogs from both ecto-parasitic and endo-parasitic infection

to sterilize all dogs in and around our school campus

So on 13 July 2017 with the collaboration of our school and the Tibet Charity, Dharamsala, a veterinarian accompanied by two of his assistants vaccinated and sterilized all the stray dogs in and around our school premises so that the school remain safe and healthy from animal diseases.

We express our gratitude to the whole team for creating such a safe and sound environment for all of us residing here. We truly appreciate your selfless act and generosity towards these innocent creatures. Hats off!

He talked about the life history of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and his blessing to the whole world.
After that, the highlight of the event was the inauguration and the launch of the TCV School Chauntra’s LOTER NEWS which is to inform about the activities hot happenings in and around the school.  This month we brought the news in Tibetan and hopefully in the near future we would be able to alternate it with English. It’s a monthly news edition.
The ‘Readers of Dalai Lama’ is yet another programme which is going around in the school for whole year. This year, more than 100 students have participated in it and read different books of His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama. Some of the students did PowerPoint presentation on the books they have read and what they understood from it.  
The morning programmed ended with the vote of thanks speech by our school Headmaster Mr. Karma Tashi la. Overall it was a meaningful and time worth spent event.
The afternoon programmed started at 2:45 pm with a soccer tournament between Staff team and School Students’ team. The game ended with the victory of the School Student team with a score of 3 and 4 respectively.
On behalf of all the staff and students, I would like to wish His Holiness a happy, healthy and long life ahead.
