23rd June: TCV Suja Celebrates SOS Day

Enthusiasm and enjoyment lived all day long when entertainment of highest degree was kicked off one after another in T.C.V Suja on the birth anniversary of Dr. Harman Gmeiner. The day started with the morning assembly at 8.00 am, where home mothers were the chief guest in recognition to service and love to the students of homes to which Dr. Herman Gmeiner was known for. In the gathering Mr. Ngodup Wangdu, The school Director not only introduced the day to the students but he also called upon the students to take inspiration from Dr. Herman Gmeiner  to bring some changes not only in their lives but also to the world at large. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sonam Sichoe, the Principal, reminded the importance of time and earnest need to utilize it in more productive ways, he also called upon the dire need of taking care of its fragile environment and keeping one’s surrounding clean. And with the junior section’s Headmaster Mr. Tashi Topgyal‘s vote of thanks the event was concluded.

But that was not the end of the day, as the most prominent part of the day was still to go, and that was the final foot ball matches that was to be played in the noon, between the boys finalist and girls finalist teams. The four teams reached in the final after defeating almost twenty teams in the knock out matches that was played as a tribute to Dr. Herman Gmeiner.

Mr.Kalsang Lhundup, the secretary Games Committee appraised the successful completion of this year’s Herman Gmeiner tournament at the closing ceremony. Perhaps he was right beyond any doubt particularly if the final matches were to be considered.

The match was played at the perfect backdrop, where the sun was at its best and weather was in all time good. The first of the two final matches that was kicked off on the day was between Team A and Team B of class X girls. The girls’ final match was kicked off at 3.20 p.m with the low start from the both the side. Though it was Team A, who dominated the first half in all the departments, be it attacking, ball possession, passing and in defence, but that couldn’t help them to get the desired lead as  both the team had to retreat back to their dressing room without any goal till the first half.

The match gained the momentum just in two minutes of the second half when Tenzin Choekey of Team A  seized a goal for her team when referee Tenzin Namgyal penalized the opponent team for a handball in the spot kick area.

The dominance of team A further continued when Tashi Dolma with her right kick put the lead further to 2-0 at the 48th minute. Though it was desperate but team B tried it’s best to bounce back but it was again a shot from Tashi Dolma leading the score to 3-0. Though in the last minute Dawa Youdon of Team B, scored a goal for the team, putting the score to 3-1 which was not enough to win the match.

Though the match finished off, the blistering performance that was staged soon after the match by solo singer Loden and group dance by XYZ group and Pepsi Smash group on English numbers brought back the crowd’s enthusiasm to the same height.

But that was not the end for the day, as the expression of face and reflection of eyes of the crowd speaks of something more that was to happen and yes there was a reason, as the final match of boys between the Phoenix and SOS was scheduled after the performance.

The much awaited match of the boys’ team was finally kicked off just after the performances. Though the weather could prove to be a spoiler in the beginning of the match but thankfully it didn’t cause much harm.

The tussle between the two was worth watching but none of the team couldn’t breach the opponent’s defence in the first half. The later part of the half brought a great change in scene, the Phoenix who looks dangerous throughout the game, showed their true colour when Dhundup Tsering catapulted his team to 1-0 lead and the fate of SOS team was finally sealed when Sonam Dakpa’s left foot shot put its team to 2-0 lead in the final minutes.

Finally winning team Phoenix (Boys) and Team B of class X lifted the cup and brought an end to the month long tournament played in the remembrance of Dr. Herman Gmeiner.

At last the day met its final point of celebration when kindergarten students staged an incredible performance, that it not only added life to the musical show that was organised by the junior school and but made the whole day remarkable one.
