Leave a comment

World’s AIDS Day was observed today at TCV Suja. It is celebrated worldwide on 1st DecembeRed-ribbonr and is the first ever global health day. TCV School Suja too observe this day every year under the directives from the Principal Office.

During the school’s morning assembly, all the teachers and students assembled in school’s main hall. Everyone had AIDS logo red ribbon pined on their chest. Science teacher Mr. Tseten Rabgyal la delivered the introductory speech. He educated the student about the disease- it’s nature, diagnosis, treatment and most importantly the precautionary means. Short informative videos were also shown to the gathering. He warned the gathering that one can’t assume that one will not be part of it just because one doesn’t have it now. We never know and we should always be caution and educated about the disease. He also presented updated reports on the disease that he has collected from various sources. He highlighted that if a person is infected with the disease, it’s very important to get it treated. Many victims suffer because they are not treated. The fear of being cajoled by the society inhibits most victims from seeking professional medical treatment. Therefore, he indicated the gathering to avoid biases for the victims and accept them in society like any other human being. The social stigma and discrimination is far more deadly than the disease itself for the victim. One of the importance of observing World’s AIDS day is to unite all people worldwide to fight against the disease not just medically but ethically too. It is observed not just to create awareness about the disease itself but also to help the victims fight it positively by supporting them socially.

Leave a comment

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Students at TCV Suja exhibited great creativity and talent at the Trashion Show in the evening of 25th November. Their fashion creation out of garbage and trash in school campus was highly admirable. It was not just an onstage show but a competition. The competition was judged on four categories namely, creation out of paper, plastic, fabric and mixture of all above three material. There were individuals as well as groups who took part in the contest. The participants have spent hours using their creativity in utilizing the garbage in the school campus into beautiful costumes and the result was outstanding. Their beautiful costumes were modeled by various students who adorned it with great style and grace. The Stage was set up such that models could walk on the ramp with confidence and ease. From the stage setup to the background sound and the lighting system, the show simply bore an image of a real fashion show in a showbiz. The creation of young minds were simply incredible. In between the ramp, short videos were shown to the audience about environment destruction caused by our waste of paper, plastic and fabric. It was very touching and inspiring. The show was judged by four panels of judges. Winners from each category were given cash prize. On the whole, it was a very educative night to all the students taking part in the show and those sitting on the floor witnessing it.

The Trashion Show was actually an initiation taken by school’s environment group.  This school has about more than 1000 inhabitants and Garbage has always pose a great challenge to school administration. Every year, School has group of volunteer students who take big role in managing school’s garbage and keeping school’s environment clean. This group of volunteers are led by a volunteer teacher Mrs. Yangdon Tsering la. She has been willingly taking charge of this group for last many years. The group involves in segregating the school garbage into recycling and dump the waste in safe location. They also clean the school environment every morning. There are around 80 volunteer students in this group.

Environmental pollution is the greatest threat and problem faced by the world today. Initiatives are taken by world bodies to educate the children from primary level to conserve our environment. After all, they are the future generation who would suffer from the impact of environment pollution now if not checked on time. So in schools, students are taught to manage their waste and turn waste into wealth. They are taught to share their things and mend the broken things instead of discarding them. This Trashion Show was in a way a practical application of the principles that are imparted now and then to the students.
