Social Service Day


For materializing one of the missions of TCV – that of making our students contributing members of the world, Social Service day was observed on April 29, 2015, a day on which His Holiness paid His visit to the TCV School Gopalpur. To mark this important day in the chapter of TCV School Gopalpur’s history, we resolved to dedicate this day as Social Service Day. Apart from the daily social service activities conducted in the school, on this day, students were taken out of the school campus to clean vicinity of Chamunda temple (a very holy place for Hindus), Dart, Chachian and Nagri town.  Local Indians appreciated our students for their sense of community service and students were accompanied by their respective class and subject teachers. The local Tibetans based at Chamunda Mandir provided refreshment to our students as thanks giving for having performed community service toward Indian localities. Students and concerned teachers did their best in cleaning up the sites assigned to them despite scorching heat.
 The specified areas for community service done by the students of the senior section:

Basket Ball Tournament


From April 20, 2015, the inter-house basketball tournament was started under the guidance and supervision of the housemasters and games committee. Students from different classes representing the four houses played matches among three main divisions on the basis of their height and weight. These games are important part of the physical and mental growth and development. It is also one of the important aspects of school curriculum. Many students get good opportunity to develop and exhibit skill and tactics during the practice session and tournament. We have staff members from different departments who carried out their responsibility as assigned by the games and sports committee.

English Quiz


The first literary contest (English Quiz) was held on April 17 evening.  The English Department took the initiative of organizing this literary contest.

The quiz was held on the following topics: 1) grammar 2) books and authors 3) audio-visual rounds 4) rapid fire round. For each topic, there were different quiz masters. Students on the floor showed interest in the English quiz especially in the rapid fire round. This kind of literary activity evokes learning spirit amongst the students and many students got informed and exposed to different arena of competition even when they were not directly involved in the quiz contest.  The winners were awarded prizes by the school principal. The names of teams are: a bunch of flowers, a cluster of star, a host of angels, a choir of singers, a school of fish and a company of soldiers. Each team was formed of three students from classes VIII through XII. The winning team was the company of soldiers.

Dictionary


If you have any confusion,
Refer me without hesitation,
I will be there to solve,
All the problems with love,
Treat me as friend that you need
And use me daily as your own,
Carry me where ever you go
Open me whenever you go
Open me whenever you want
No need to give me thanks
So see me at any time
Even I will be there online.

EMOTIONAL STATUS OF A GIRL


Getting emotional when it rains may seem weird but it really does. I am looking out of the window and I am able to hear the sounds of raindrops touch the old tin roof.
As I sat there like a frozen statue, a cool breeze started to blow and it touched my bare skin giving a chill. Just like turning the pages of a book, it took me back to the time  when I’m with my guardian angel.
Days had passed and years have gone that she had left me. But the sweet memory we shared always created a smile on my gloomy face. Since the day she left, evenin this over populated world I feel so alone.
We use to have pretty fights, we didn’t had any earth shattering things to discuss and sometimes, it seems like we are speaking two different languages but still I’m so glad  that we are friends.she is the one out of million and I’m never going to give on her even if the world refuses.
She lets me know that making millions of  friend is not miracle but the miracle is to make a friend who will  stand by you even when the millions are against you. Being her friend is like peeing my pants cause everyone can see it but only I can feel it’s warmth.
Thinking of these things again filled  my eyes with tears instead of wiping it, I just let it fall like the rain  that made me emotional.
So, I just shield my sweater tighter on my body and with a long sigh, I move away.
P.S: how far we may be, still we are sharing the same moon .
