Gandhi Jyanti is celebrated every year on 2nd October to commemorate the birth anniversary of Gandhiji – the father of nation. This year T.C.V. Chauntra celebrated 150th birth anniversary of him by organizing a function in the morning and community service (Swatch Bharat or Clean India ) thereafter.  
The function was attended by the staff and the students above class 6 at the school auditorium. It began with the singing of the Indian and the Tibetan national anthem followed by the lighting of a butter lamp in front of the portrait of Gandh ji by the school Principal. Miss Dekyi Wangmo La, a  Social Science teacher address the audience by giving a talk about the life history of Gandhiji, the sacrifices he made for his country and about his non violent ideology.

Cleanliness and community service were treasured by Gandhiji. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” is Gandhiji’s mantra and to pay tribute to him, a cleanliness drive was initiated by the school Social Science department. Classes from 5 to 10 and the staff of the school joined the cleanliness drive to clean inside and the outside of the school. The team of students and staff could transform the dirty locality into a pleasurable one.
