World Mental Health Day

10 October is observed as World Mental Health Day every year. This year the theme is “Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World”.
To mark the day we invited guest speakers from JDWNRH: Mr. Ugyen, counsellor at JDWNRH and Ms. Jody a visiting counsellor from US. WHO states that half of mental illness begins by the age of 14 but most cases go undetected and untreated. Because of the fast changing world around adolescence and the early years of adulthood such as change of schools, jobs, competition to excel in studies and place of living to name a few. Ms. Jody therefore suggests that we keep track of five things: EAT, SLEEP, MOVE, CONNECT and MONITOR at all times. We must eat on time, have minimum 8 hours of sleep and exercise. We must communicate and connect with people around us and monitor for a sound mental health.
Watch what more she has to say. Let’s all pledge to EAT, SLEEP, MOVE, CONNECT and MONITOR for healthy mental health. We would like to thank Mr. Ganesh, our counsellor for making it possible.

Certificate of appreciation

A certificate of appreciation was awarded to the owner of GRC for the donation of zhue(ritual fillings) for cheshom worth of 4 lakhs. We would like to thank and acknowledge such a great pious buddhist for unstinting charity he gave for religious cause as well as for the cause of our school.
Tibetan Buddhists believe that a Buddha statue is only an empty shell unless it is properly filled and consecrated. Therefore, new Buddha statue should be filled with the required materials and then consecrated by a qualified guru. As a result, statue will be aesthetically pleasing and it will also bring us blessings when we see it. These are the great blessings of the enlightened body, enlightened speech and the enlightened mind.
We are still looking for more donations both in cash and kind for the consecration and completion of our new Choeshom in new academic building.

Awareness campaign conducted by RUB

Awareness campaign conducted by RUB official for our senior students about the availability of various options and scopes after class XII. Their wise decision may play pivotal role in choosing the good university after XII plus but getting enrolled will be leveraged by their XII board exam mark. They all have to compete with students of entire nation for the any in or ex-country limited scholarship available with RUB.
Time flies: the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting and now only three months are left for them to be with us. Some of them are with us for four years and others for two years. We know many of them in depth and we can vouch on them that they will not only become great leaders but selfless good human beings encrusted with great values.

Mock drill

Mock drill for earthquake was successfully conducted today, spearheaded by coordinators, lop. Sangay Penjor and madam Nanda. They briefed our students with all the necessary 'dos and don'ts' before, during and after earthquakes. Students were also made fully aware about the evacuation area during such unexpected disasters. Disaster like earthquakes are never predicted and it comes without warning, often causing unimaginable destruction to the life and properties. Thus, remaining prepared should be given maximum priority, with all necessary precautions and techniques to avoid the hassles of such disaster.
Bhutan being located in the subduction zone of two major plates(Eurosian plate from north and Indian Sub-Continent plate from south), earthquake are likely to happen at any time (since these two place are still moving towards each other).

Farewell bidding for trainees

We are fortunate to get highly dedicated, well behaved and polite trainee who are all great teachers in making or so called budding great teachers. Every students they taught for this one and a half month have become great admirer of their teaching strategies and doesn't want to miss them.
There is common saying "proof of pudding lies in eating" and, similarly the proof of their teaching lies in the understanding of the subject by our students. Our students are all in favour of their teaching strategies since everyone are crystal clear of what they have taught.
They also helped and contributed in all other extra curricular activities equally like other regular teachers. Thank you very much to all the wonderful trainees.

Academic meeting with parents

"Stitch in time saves nine". Meaning: it's better to spend a little time and effort to deal with a problem right now than to wait until later, when it may get worse and take longer to deal with. Unlike in the past years, this year our administration did a wonderful job by calling a meeting in advance comprising of low performing students themselves, their parent, class teacher and even subject teachers. The main motive of calling for such meeting was to help students to improve their performance by investigating and addressing problems or challenges that hinder their progress. They are all good students with great potentially but have some obstacles hindering their progress in academic performance. Such meeting will help to improve the overall performance of students since their issues will be addressed collaboratively by teacher and parent together.
Both students and parents have given their commitment to do best. School administration too has documented such commitments. Thus, henceforth, school will make necessary monitoring and observation over such students by giving additional care and support. We are all eager to see a drastic change in terms of improvements in their academic performance.

Usually to fulfill as good human being, one most possess intrinsic or in-built qualities of kind, gentle, friendly, unselfishness, honest, cooperative, helpful, hard working, dedicated, dutiful, sincere, well behaved, and decent and many other good and invaluable traits. They all possess such highly invaluable and indispensable qualities or traits and thus, they got nominated before mid-term itself.

Dzongkha debate for senior category

Dzongkha debate for senior category held during zero period in our MP hall. We have minimum of one Dzongkha and one English debate both for senior and junior students every year. Debate is the activity that brings the art of reading, thinking and speaking together in one place or platform. Usually debates are on the basis of three important parameters: quick thinking, sound argument, and confident speaking. Taking part in debate helps students to think critically (one of the ten core of life skill) besides making them eloquent orator in public speaking.
Great debaters of today often become great leaders of tomorrow since one the basic requirements of every leader is art of public speaking. "A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed". - Nelson Mandela (late).

High tea for academic excellence students

High tea for our academic excellence students who scored 80% and above was organized today. They are so called "creams of our school" and "winners with the crown of academic success. I like the quote of Shiv Khera, which says "Winners don't do different thing but they do it differently. They work even when it hurts". It applies to students too. They study the same subjects in same class, under same teachers with same teaching strategies but the ones who are topper, are the ones who study differently by going extra miles. They will study or work even they are not very comfortable or sacrificing their comfort and often beyond the scheduled time.
Toppers or winners don’t have any magic wands to score high nor do they have the best brain to remember everything they learn. All they have is will power and determination to work smart and work extra. Even Thomas Edison says "Success is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration." This means to be successful you have to work at it. So if you think about being successful more than trying to be successful you will probably not reach your goal or it will take longer to reach it. You also need to work more and think less.
Risk of winning is not being able to hold the same position in every term exam and even in annual or board exam. Thus, to be a constant topper, they have to maximize their effort in studying more than ever before, and obviously more than everyone.
I, on behalf of our entire Motithang family would like to congratulate them for scoring 80% and above in the mid-term exam. Keep working hard and keep shining more than ever.

Physics projects

Physics projects display and assessment carried out today in class 10's block. The mastermind behind such efficacious and innovative way of teaching (i.e. "learning by doing") for our young mind is madam Nanda (one of our great physics teacher). Assessment was carried out judiciously by our trainee teachers.
Conceptually, the learning modules were based on universally accepted principles that were enunciated by Chinese philosopher and reformer Confucius (551 BC to 479 BC), who stated “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” Students are not at all lackadaisical in doing such projects, rather eager and excited with unlimited passion and sense of competition. Each one is trying to leapfrog other with their creativity and talent in making model as a part of their physics project.

Exchange program

Group of Japanese students are welcomed by our students to our school, with our traditional way of offering Khadar for prestigious guest. They will remain here in our school for few days mainly to learn about our education system, culture and even daily social practices.
It is really hard to distinguish between Japanese and Bhutanese especially when they are in our costumes and attire since they look much like us even by their physical and facial appearance.
Japanese are not only clever and hard working but also very polite and friendly people. We are all happy to have them here in our school. Every year we are fortunate to have minimum of two groups of Japanese students visiting our school escorted by their teachers. We learn a lot about their culture just by having them with us for few days. We are also expecting similar kind of exchange program from our school to Japan very soon under our selfless, far-sighted and dynamic leaders.

Education on social media

As a first ever event of second term, today "Social media program" for classes 9 and 11 was conducted in our MP hall by Riku Dhan Subbha, Media Officer and Sherub Tenzin, IT officer coordinated by Mr. Jambay Dorji. They have enlightened our students on pros and cons of Social media, Internet blogging and monetizing internet content. Social media is a form of electronic communication (such as websites for social networking and micro blogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (such as videos). Social media is a subject of vast content and is increasing by leaps and bounds often beyond our knowledge. It is diverse in terms of content and reach. Social media is not bad, how you use it matters the most.

Vacation well spend

Vacation well spends: Learning, earning and physical exercises happening together. They made wise decision with their own intuition to keep themselves happy, healthy and resourceful when many ignoramuses nixed even advices and suggestions of their superiors. Now a days’ work experience can be a great asset to any youth including graduates. Every organization is looking for experience in technical skill as well as behavioral skill, and many remain unemployed since they lack such skills or experiences.

One doesn't get real life experience or skill simply by being spectator but by taking part in it (that is learning by doing). We are happy to see them meaningfully and productively engaged in such a mind-blowing activities, which will instill them with invaluable knowledge (besides filling their pocket and making them physically and mentally wise and strong).

Choeshey

We had religious and cultural talk by highly learned venerable Khenpo Tandin Sithup for our senior students and staff. Khenpo started his amazingly soothing religious discourse by coherently elucidating the teachings of Buddha (Gautama Buddha), pivoting on Buddha, Dharma and Sanga.

Next, Khenpo beautifully explained to us about the evolution, progression and change of Buddhism in our country in four different phases, by attributing the significance and essence of each phase to prominent figures (Guru Padmasambavaa, Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, Raven crowns/kings of Bhutan and 70th Je Khenpo). He also beautifully captured the contributions of each prominent figure (in bringing peace and prosperity along with the unity of our people and security of our nation through the preservation of religion and culture).

Venerable Khenpo wisely inoculated primary human values as well as supreme religious values in his talk, miraculously captivating all our thoughts and further inspiring us to follow the right path (path that will free oneself especially from the prison of greed, clutches of jealousy, grip of hatred and furnace of anger).

Every student was seen fascinated and impressed by today's exhilarating as well as mind-changing successful programme.

Menstrual hygiene

A weeklong programme on menstrual cycle was grandly concluded today with different activities that were stuffed and incrusted with far-reaching impact on the mindset of people.

Talking about menstruation should not make people, particularly young girls – feel uneasy, or embarrassed. Menstruation is a normal, major stage of puberty in girls. However, many girls in Bhutan and around the world still feel ashamed to talk about their periods and don’t have mediums to talk or share about it. There are still some glitches when the topic of "menstrual cycle" is concerned and is still considered as taboo or impermissible in some section of our society. Thus, they (especially innocent and shy ones) suffer in silence both mentality and physically, often leading to other chain-problems that has a ripple effect in the society at large.

Now it is a time to support them with necessary advice, encourage them to be more receptive, open minded, bold and daring to face challenges of their life.

Our school health committee in particular and school family in general has left no stones unturned to achieve the desired result out of this program. Our students and staff also voluntarily and wholeheartedly donated enough sanitary pads which we will be sending to one of the remote and needy school very soon. Thanks you all for making the programme on menstrual cycle a grand success.

Open mike session

Today, in the open mike session we had the privilege to attend amazing session by 'master of many trade', Mr. Rinchen Khandu who is popularly known as Bazaguru. He is a music (song) composer, poet, writer, theologion and philosopher besides being a successful businessman and a great orater. He is the father of the present day reincarnation (trulku) of 69th Je Khenpo, Geshe Gendun Rinchen, besides he himself being recognised as incarnation of Jamphelyang (Manjushri)the god of wisdom (in China). He mesmerised all of us from 'soup to nuts'(beginning to end) with his enlightening talk infused with strong moral values and real life inspirational examples. Finally, he further entertained our students with self-composed remarkable lyric and amusing rap song. I personally like his lyric of one of the most popular song 'Gangkar Jumolhari' from Bhutanese blockbuster movie "Lengo". I do hope everyone enjoyed today’s session to the fullest possible extent. Have a nice weekend to all

Declamation

Today we had a declamation competition for senior students. Declamation means the act or art of declaiming (saying something usually in a loud and formal way). It is an exercise in oratory or elocution, as in the recitation of a classic speech. Our students gave mind-blowing speeches of renowned or distinguished world leaders or eminent freedom fighters famed for their highest achievements.

Every speaker gave remarkable speech in well suited rhythmic tone of their voice, integrating with gesture or move of their body, that too in a best outfit or costumes that match superbly well with the chosen personality. Consistently there was tumultuous applause for every speaker from the audience indicating the maximum level of satisfaction audience has derived.

Talk

Our girl students were briefed on universal human values. A value is a universal value if it has the same value or worth for all, or almost all, people. Spheres of human value encompass morality, aesthetic preference, human traits, human endeavor, and social order. Universal Human Values education is mainly about issues related to our happiness, our welfare, our aspirations, goals and success in life. This value education enables us to live in harmony within oneself, with family, with society and the nature at large.

Also winner gets the garland of unanticipated risk and undue responsibilities along with the crown of success. They have to prove their worthiness with their act, action and attitude because great power always comes with great responsibility. Entire Motithang family would like to congratulate our new SRC and school captains.

Campaigning for SRC and School captain

Campaigning speech by nominees for the post of school captain and SRC captain delivered today. Their outstanding speech made the rest of us speechless with their remarkable oratory talent. However, saying or promising is one thing but doing is another since it is easier said than done as far as their true commitment and unfaltering call of duty is concerned. Thus, their true worthiness will still remain shrouded in mystery until they get elected and continue with their responsibilities. If they get elected tomorrow, then they will have to continue serving till mid-term of 2019. Hope the most deserving ones will be voted tomorrow.

Dzongkha debate

Today our school literary committee successfully conducted a Dzongkha debate for junior category (for classes IX n X). Each pair of contestants (one speaking in favour and the other against) was provided with exceptionally enthralling topics by our super smart coordinator. ☝Although taking part in debate is not everyone's piece of cake but each contestant did amazingly thrilling job as a debater by displaying their unexpectedly sensational talent that enchanted horde of entire spectators. The benefits that accrue (to increase in value or amount gradually as time passes) as a result of engaging in debate are numerous. Debate provides experiences that are conducive to life-changing, cognitive, and presentational skills. In addition, through debate debaters acquire unique educational benefits as they learn and polish (to make better than it was before) skills far beyond what can be learnt in any other setting.

At the very least, debate helps learners to see the power of deploying rational, reasoned arguments and compelling evidence in action since 'it takes two to tango'(need more than one person in argument).It enables them to elucidate (to make clear or easy to understand) their standpoint through utilizing rhetorical eloquence. It instills in debaters a great sense of poise and confidence. It teaches them the skills of researching, organizing, and presenting information in a compelling fashion.

Global Money Week

With the theme- "Money Matters Matter", the program on Global Money Week was conducted in our school for our students by group of BoB officials today. The week is an annual global celebration initiated by the Child and Youth Finance International. This year, Bhutan is devoting the Global Money Week for promoting financial education and inclusion in the country’s education system.

With an aim to help Bhutanese children and the youth in making smart financial decisions throughout their lives, the officials gave talk on learning to earn, importance of saving, smart shopping and digital financial services. Money is a good servant, but a bad master. If you have money and you are wise enough know how to manage it, it will serve you and work for you well. But if you owe money to other people or if you fail to manage money in your own possession, that money will control you in an unpleasant way. Thus, learning how to manage money is equally important as making money.

Academic Award Day

Everyone cannot be the toppers in academic or in any other fields, but only those who put extra effort, determination and dedication in their studies or work. All our toppers of 2017 too have left no stones unturned to achieve their vision and fulfill their mission. All were awarded with certificates by our chief guest, honorable Lyonpo, Dr.Sonam Kinga.

He shared greatly engrossing, immensely inspiring and equally entertaining words of wisdom encapsulated inside his own iconic biography and awakening history. In nutshell, Lyonpo clearly stated that; all successful people are also failures at one point of time in their life, but the wise ones take it as a lesson, put extra effort and finally wear the crown of success. Our entire students and even teachers were all greatly inspired with such a wonderfully remarkable words of wisdom intermingled with amazingly professional jest.

Celebration of World Wildlife Day

Today, our nature club students along with their club-coordinator, madam Sippy Parajuli participated in World Wildlife Day celebration at Dodheyna Park Range in Thimphu, under Jigme Dorji National Park. The World Wildlife Day is celebrated every year on March 3 to celebrate and raise awareness on world’s flora and fauna coinciding with adoption day of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

The theme this year for World Wildlife Day is “Big cats: predators under threat”. Tigers and snow leopards are found in a number of protected areas in Bhutan. However, poaching and the illegal trade of these endangered species are still a major threat. To protect these big cats, WWF and local wildlife authorities are working together to establish anti-poaching units, strengthen anti-poaching law enforcement and many other related activities. They have also found it important to educate our youth on the issues related to importance of big cats within existing ecosystem as well as in food chain of entire wild species. This is because youth are the future of tomorrow. Thus, today, they have invited few students (particularly nature club members) from every schools of Thimphu Thromde to participate and learn on the importance of big cats (since the event is being held in Dodheyna Park Range forest in Thimphu).

Visit of Royal Audit Authority
Visit of Royal Audit Authority officials along with Auditor General Dasho Tshering Kezang. Senior students’ and teachers were briefed with exceedingly important information on the history, role and functions of RAA in Bhutan.

Auditors play important role in restraining corruption in financial domain as well as government property. They have to be equally tactful to deal with devious officials (with unlimited authority vested upon them) and even corrupt politicians (in higher rung of carrier ramification).

Value Education
Three days of value education for classes X and XII ended successfully on 7th Feburary, 2018. Dr.Karma Phuntsho cheered as our Guest speaker by sharing and inspiring our students with immensely valuable words of wisdom related to value. Value education is the process by which people give moral values to others.

In today’s world, where corruption, violence, unrest have become so prevalent in our society, schools have added responsibility to ensure that value education as a subject is taken seriously as a part of the curriculum to produce not just educated but also responsible citizens with insightful minds who believe in giving back to the society. Values should be integrated in various aspects of life. It goes without saying that values go a long way in building a person’s character. Education without strong character is like a ship without a captain. Good education is inconceivable if it fails to inculcate values which are indispensable for a holistic life. Qualifications and skills are essential in the success of an individual but without values he is incomplete as a person.

Values are virtues that are imbibed by the children from their surroundings, the environment in which they are brought up, the environment in which they live. The people around them play a vital role in leaving an impression on the tender minds of these young individuals. However, in our Bhutanese context, we also have taught values related to our own good cultural and spiritual practices to students and youth. This will further prepare them to be ideal and iconic future citizens.
