Besides various academic programs that are carried out in the school, TCV also place a great importance to the co-curricular activities. School believes that these co-curricular programs has great social, practical and educational benefits to the students. One of the main aim behind holding this event in school every year is the preservation of Tibetan culture among the younger generations. The political situation of Tibet is such that it has become even more important and urgent for the Tibetans in exile to preserve Tibetan language and culture which otherwise is being targeted under the Chinese oppressed rule in Tibet. Thus, the Inter House Cultural Competition is one of the most important non-academic programs that is held in the school every year. It has always been dedicated to his Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama whose birthday falls on 6th July.DSC_0321

Behind the curtain, some students were seen overjoyed for their victory while some were seen with red moistened eyes for their loss. Some were seen consoling their friends while some were giving high fives. But that’s Life. And that is what students are taught from very young age at school. Winning and losing are like two sides of same coin. None is permanent. Similarly, the winner’s trophy doesn’t stay with one house, it keeps rotating every year. But for this year, it is with the Trisong House. Congratulations!!!!
