Global Handwashing Day is an annual global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of hand washing with soap as an easy, effective, and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives. It was founded by the Global Handwashing Partnership, and first observed on 15th October, in 2008, when over 120 million children around the world washed their hands with soap in more than 70 countries.

English Day

A report on English Day

As per the School Dairy, the English Department of the Senior Section, Tibetan Children’s Village School, Upper Dharamsala, observed English Day on September 14, 2017. The main goal of observing such a day is to highlight the importance of English language in our daily lives and to create an input-rich environment for language acquisition and learning. The observance is expected to create a renewed focus on the language use amongst teachers and students in the daily classroom interaction of all subjects. The main program of English Day was held in the school auditorium during the morning assembly. The day began with the recitation of school prayer – Ganglo ma (Manjushri) – in English language. The theme of this year English Day was DRAMA. After the Manjushri recitation, there was a dramatic extract by the couple of students from class XI followed by the enactment of the play Bishop’s Candlesticks by class IX and Julius Caesar by class X students.

In the fifth and sixth period there was a book fair by class VI students in the corridor of their classes.

The whole day was observed as English speaking day and students and teachers were required to speak in English. This is meant to create an English speaking ethos and classroom culture, which again form an important part of comprehensive and meaningful language inputs. Even though it was strictly observed for only one day, we hope that many teachers and students will carry forward this approach in their classroom discussions and interactions.

Secretary, English Department

The Tibetan Department of Senior Section this year organized inter class Tibetan elocution and the class XI Tibetan debate on 24th and 29th August respectively. All the students of each level were given equal opportunity and finally 21 students took part in the actual contest. The main purpose behind the establishment of these literary contests is to provide opportunities for the students to excel in literary and creative arts, to enrich the co-curricular activities in the school and to provide an all-round and holistic education to the children.

A poem called ‘Kyipae Phayul Drenchung’ (I missed my country) for the class VI students were provided to the students through their class teacher.  Speeches and dramatic extracts were selected by the respective class teachers and the preliminary selection for the poem, speech and the dramatic extract was done on 14th, 16th and 17th  August respectively.  After further training under the Tibetan teachers, the finalists contested on 24th evening. The winners were Pema Kunsang class VI P in the poem, Sangay Choezom Class VII D and Tenzin Choedhar Class 7 D in the speech, and Ngawang Sangmo Class VIII in the dramatic extract category.

The class XI debate took a turn this year. Since the debate has to be held within the class XI students, voluntary students were invited to sit in the debate. The 6 finalists were given 3 topics from which a pair had to debate on one topic. The topics were 1) That the middle way is the best approach for the Tibetan cause, 2) That money is more important than education, and 3) That the Humanities stream is more important than Commerce stream. The debate was held on the evening of 29th August.  Jampa Wangchuk of XI A, Ugyen Lhamo of XI B and Tsomo of XI B stood 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. The School Director, who was the chief guest of the program congratulated the winners and spoke at length on the 3 interesting topics of the debate.

The TCV Education Manual, 2007 says, ‘To enhance and enrich the co-curricular activities among the students and to provide opportunities for the students to test their skills, the literary contest was established.’

Dharamsala, September 2, 2017: When all the Tibetans were celebrating the Tibetan Democracy day in full vigor on 2nd September, TCV Upper Dharamsala was on the forefront. In the morning, all the students from class IX till XI went to the main temple (Tsuklakhang) to attend the official function of the CTA. In the evening, at 4 p.m., a small tea party was arranged in celebration of the day and in honor of our ‘Gaden Pho-drang’ award recipients in Dekyi Tsering hall. This year, out of the four Gaden Phodrang award recipients from the Commerce stream, three were from our school. However, only two could make it to the gathering.

The occasion was graced by the Education Director, and all the class XI students and teachers, concerned hostel matrons, and the school Managing Committee attended the same. The School Director introduced the two award recipients to the students and shared the motive behind the gathering. He said, ‘Not only are the girls an inspiration to the students, but also a hope that the XI students will follow the same suit.’

Grabbing the opportunity, the two award recipients were asked to share their feedbacks to the students. Miss. Tenzin Sangmo, the topper of Commerce stream with 87.8 % told the students about the importance of time management and self discipline.  She feels that the secret behind her success is her consistency and regularity in her works paired with close attention to her teachers’ instructions. Miss. Khashi Wangmo, second position holder with 82.6 % stressed on the importance of book reading, and sharing one’s knowledge to others which eventually benefits self. Following the two award recipients, Mr. Sonam Sichoe, the Education Director, congratulating the two award winners with appreciation, stressed on the various awards of the Department of Education and the opportunities that lie before them. He advised the students to plan for the 2019 exam with proper planning, self discipline, time management and hard work.

As a mark of appreciation, a small gift was given to the award recipients by the Chief Guest. The Principal thanked everyone involved in the celebration. The program concluded with delicious tea and snacks served to all the gathered followed by clicking of some memorable group photos.

The annual ‘Gaden Phodrang merit award’ for excellence in academics was started in 2002. Under this scheme, three Tibetan students who topped in their respective streams were awarded.  However, the number was increased to nine students, i.e. top three students from Science, Arts and Commerce streams.
