The function began with the lifelong prayer by all the staff and students in the school hall followed by incense burning ceremony on the basketball ground. Mr. Tenzin Dorjee la, the senior section Headmaster introduced the day and spoke on the life story of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. After that, the school Director Mr. Choeying Dhoundup la read out Kashag’s statement. After that Mr. Tsering Wangdu la, senior Tibetan teacher read out the statement of Tibetan Parliament. The morning function concluded with the address from the school principal Mr. Karma Sherap Therchin la.During the function, Mr. Lhakpa Dhoundup la, the Director of TCV Selakui ITI and his two staff and students were given appreciation letter and scarf each for their month long service for the school.

More important than celebrating His Holiness with grand parties and gatherings is to put His Holiness’ advice and teachings into practice. His Holiness the Dalai Lama once said that the best birthday gift for Him would be to develop love and compassion. So, the message was conveyed to all to make more compassionate society.

In the evening, a special Tibetan Debate was organized by the school monitors. It was attended by the senior students.
