 KIKU sounds like a Japanese word and indeed it is which is abbreviated by a group of TCV sponsors from Japan from their words, meaning “We love Tibet. We support Tibet.” About hundred Japanese formed an organization called KIKU. We have over hundred children who are sponsored by our Japanese sponsors from KIKU. Their sponsorship is very wisely organized and helps as many as is possible. Every year they arrange to have knitted mufflers, caps and socks to their sponsored children as well as to their close friends. A Japanese lady in the town hires local Tibetan ladies to knit caps, socks and mufflers. Our local Tibetan ladies are kept busy with knitting and are an additional source of income for their livelihood. These knitted items are bought to TCV and are distributed to their sponsored children and their friends. We received the first consignment this year before the onset of winter and children were very happy to have these from their sponsors which are knitted by Amalas from Mcleod Ganj. The idea of helping each other and engaging unemployed mothers to help the children with their knitting skill is very bright idea and innovative.

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. Since 2008, this day is celebrated annually on October 15.

With the Principal as the chief guest for the occasion, the students and teachers of Infant and Junior section, along with the section heads and the home amalas gathered in Dekyi Tsering hall at 8 a.m. Mr. Dhondup Gyalpo, the Junior Headmaster graced the occasion by speaking on importance of hand washing and the relation of our handwashing with our future since the theme for this year’s Global Hand Washing Day was ‘Our Hands, Our Future’.

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
