The school arranged a winter training programme for some of the teachers which took place from 10th February to 19th March, 2011, at Sri Aurobindo  Ashram , Delhi, India.

19 teachers from the school attended the programme.   

 The aims and objectives of the training programme were:

  • To empower the teachers with a comprehensive understanding of the child as a learner and learning as a lifelong process.
  • To prepare systems and processes to equip the school for launching a comprehensive model of Child Centered Education.
  • To help teachers understand and develop themselves as facilitators and Human Resource for implementation of Child Centered Education in the school.

The programme included: Self development; teaching through projects; child centered education;  visits to some schools in Delhi and some museums and historical places; art and craft; theatre and drama; physical education,  and yoga and meditation.

 The teachers reported that it was a good learning experience and are looking forward to implementing their new approaches in the school in a phase wise manner.

CONGRATULATIONS to Malcolm and Edwin, who completed a 150km sponsored bike ride. Please help the school by donating to reach their goal of £1000. Go to their Virgin Money Giving page.

Malcolm Hodgson and Edwin Gruber of St Christopher School, Letchworth, are raising funds for equipment and teaching materials for the school following last year’s mudslide damage.

Malcolm and Edwin had never done a bike ride of this length before, but felt they really wanted to show their commitment to the school by doing something extraordinary.

Please support their effort by sponsoring their achievement.

Many thanks for any support you can give.

Books, books and more books

Most of the books on the campus were destroyed in the August mudslide.  Members of the Arup Design Team visited Shey in September 2010 and brought 80kg of reading books collected by Darrick Wood School, London, and Pilgrim School in Bedfordshire, UK.  The Druk White Lotus children were very excited to see so many books and were soon engrossed.
