The school has been wholeheartedly assisted by two of the alumnis Mr. Kuenga Lhendup and Ms. Lhaki Dolma. Mr.Kuenga Lhendup was an active member of the Sherubtse Theatre Ensemble and Ms. Lhaki Dolma is a well known professional actor/director in the Bhutanese Film Industry.
The theatrical play – Sem Gi Zhidhey is a dzongkha adaptation of “An Inspector Calls”, a play written by J.B. Priestley. The play revolves around various themes such as social consciousness, inter-personal relationship and consequences of our individual actions. The performance is aimed to take the culture of theatrical performance to the next level involving the use of professional light and sound system.

Reading Week

Reading: The Best Gift you can give yourself. That was the reading theme MHSS adopted this year to observe the annual Reading Week from 29th August to 3rd September 2016. The day began with the banner flying overlooking the assembly ground.
It had the above reading theme boldly written on it to catch the young readers’ minds. The importance of the moment was augmented by the Principal’s speech and madam Pema Yangden’s talk on the topic.
Throughout the week, the school observed one hour zero period to conduct the mass reading in the assembly ground and inside the class when it rained.
The week’s festive mood of reading became more when the book shops agreed to put up their stalls in the school for the whole time. The students’ class banners on reading kept flying outside their classes aided more meaning to the occasion.
Each student brought their own favorite books to read and continue reading them afterwards. The quiz competition conducted by the literary committee members for the junior classes was enriching and students seemed to enjoy it very much.
The closing of the Reading Week was all the more interesting as the school conducted galley walk for the Students. The Students dressed up in their favorite literary characters took the red carpet walk up to the podium to talk about their roles. The show they put up for the other students that way was indeed meaning full as that helped to open up the minds of many for R.. E.. A.. D.. I.. N ..G!

Open-mike session

Open-mike session is an innovative program introduced in Motithang Higher Secondary school in 2015. This activity has proved to be an interesting one where the school invites learned scholars and personalities to deliver speeches on human values. Many guest speakers gave talks on important issues and also shared their experiences in life. One of the most inspiring talks was given by His Excellency Lyonpo Sonam Kinga, chairman of the National Council of Bhutan on August 13, 2016.
His Excellency gave us the freedom to choose a topic from the given options. Since majority wanted to listen about ‘Monarchy’, His Excellency talked about it. He not only talked about the institution of Monarchy in Bhutan but also all around the world.  We also received new information like there are about 195 -196 countries in the world out of which Monarchy still exists in 16 countries.
We learned about different types of monarchies like Absolute Monarchy in Saudi Arabia, Constitutional Monarchy in Japan and England and the other forms like Federal Monarchy and Elective Monarchy are also still prevalent today. Apart from what we study in history and civics we were further enriched with the new developments of monarchy I the world.
The program was very interesting and entertaining one with the video was also screened in between the activity. There was also a question-answer session with His Excellency related to his own experiences and struggles that he had overcome with hard work. He answered all our questions very diligently. He also gave us advice as to how we can go about in life.
He really touched our hearts by the program which was very inspirational, motivating and educational one. 
The program ended at around 12:10 PM. It was indeed a valuable program and all of us enjoyed gaining confidence to ask questions to the speakers.
We still look forward to attending such events in future.

Visit of Dokhampa Rinpoche

His Eminence visited Motithang Higher Secondary School today on invitation of our school management. His Eminence gave teachings on the basic fundamentals of being a Buddhist. His Eminence focused on negative deeds, positive deeds and taming one’s own mind. His Eminence also shared that a Buddhist does not believe in a greater being or accidental occurrence but believes that whatever happens to an individual is because of his/her own karma (one’s own actions, speech and thought). His Eminence also taught us to believe in Cause and Effect that is, there will be a result of every karma and the world is called the world of hopes and possibilities with ripen conditions.

His Eminence said that feeling loved by others depend on ourselves. It depends on how much we appreciate things around us. As children, we should appreciate our parents for their kindness. His Eminence also taught us how to be a compassionate person in life to love, respect, care and build relationship to have a beautiful world to live in. The world is the reflection of your visualization. Eating meat is also a visualization. If we see a dead cow, most of us will feel disgusted to eat it but if the meat from the very dead cow is cooked very well and served, you will eat it happily. It’s solely your mind which creates the various feelings (sadness or happiness). Therefore, it is very important to tame our mind to understand that happiness is within us.

PD on Competency Based Question

We were fortunate to have Mr. Arjun from BCSEA to enlighten us on setting competency based question. This programme was mainly conducted to bring a change in teaching and learning processes. This was mainly for teachers to upgrade their questioning skills, to make our children competent for the new world. This professional development helped to equip the teachers in knowing their children’s ability and how to cope up with different questioning patterns. In this way, both teachers and students can know each other in the best possible ways. Therefore, this can really help to have a conducive learning in the classroom.

PD on 21st Century Pedagogy

We all are now stepping into the new world with lots of competitions and challenges. Therefore, all the teachers in the school must be advanced with the 21st century teaching pedagogy in the classroom.

We were very lucky to have our two competent colleagues to help us on this and felt awakened. Now, we can really guide our children with confidence and understand our children in a better way. This 21st century teaching pedagogy can prepare our children to face the new world with commitments.
