Children’s Day: 14th November, 2016
Children’s day program is one of the annual events that our children look forward with much excitement. We celebrate Children’s day with the sole purpose of entertaining our children to bring about little laughter and fun in the midst of their serious academic pursuits. Children’s Day is celebrated throughout India to pay our deepest gratitude to the first prime minister of India – Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who we owe tons of love and gratitude for being the main architect behind having separate schools for Tibetan refugee children. His farsighted vision of Tibetan children back in early sixties pays off today making our community vibrant and lively.
This kind of programs interconnects various departments under one slogan: Entertain, Entertain and entertain our children on children’s day. Each department met and spent several days preparing for the entertainment show for our children. The evening was a big treat for our children rolling them with lot of fun and laughter. Various shows from cultural dances, songs to glimpses of Bollywood items rocked the stage and made our children fully engrossed for about an hour and half.
This year Junior and Infant section did an excellent job of making a complete change of our stage and hall with beautiful decorations and life-size quotes from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Nehru. As the children were ushered in the hall for the morning function everyone was awestruck with the beautiful decoration making the whole atmosphere very festive and meaningful.
After the felicitation address by Mr. Dhondup Gyalpo and our President Mr. Thupten Dorjee, the stage was set for the oath taking ceremony for 2017 students council under new head boy and head girl. Every one applauded with appreciation for the excellent job done by the outgoing students’ council and wished success to the newly appointed captains and prefects. Director Mr. Ngodup Wangdue concluded the morning function with his word of appreciation for the involvement of all our staff making the day memorable for our children.
The morning function was followed with several entertaining games for our students in Infant and Junior. We are grateful to Punjab Regiment 26 Battalion band for making their presence felt with their beautiful display of Army band. Special lunch was arranged in the respective homes and hostels. This year children’s day was very entertaining and a lot of fun for our children.
