TCV Chauntra His holiness birthday

On 6th July 2017, we celebrated one of the most blissful days of the year as it is the born day of our beloved His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. We started this auspicious day with a gathering of staff and students above class VII for Sangsol (incense burning) prayer.
TCV Chauntra His holiness birthdayThe programme started at 8:00 and the actual function started at 9 am with a lighting of butter lamp by our school Principal, Mr. Passang Tsering la and offering of white scarf by the whole staff for His Holiness portrait.  The school Principal delivered the introductory speech. . 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.
