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.

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.

The week is an annual global celebration initiated by the Child and Youth Finance International.

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.

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).

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.
