Account by Stanzin Thinles of class S-9.

On 15th December. one and a half months after the start of our new school year, our school was closed for a long winter break like other schools of Ladakh. But for us, the students of S-9, school arranged a tuition class for 5 days. My classmates were very happy not only for the long winter break but also about the tuition classes because we got a chance to spend more time with our friends. After that I spent my holidays with lots of enjoyment and studies also. During the vacation I also went for a tuition class at Leh and each day spent by me at Leh was wonderful. I also did my winter vacation homework.

There were two major local festivals during the vacation, DOSMOCHAY and SPITUK GUSTOR. We went to the festivals with our friends and enjoyed them a lot, and we also visited the gompa and stupas.

On the last three days we again came to school for Hindi extra class when Sir Sudershan Kumar taught us.

On 4th of March school was reopened after the vacation and I met all my friends again. From the very first day we started preparing for our 1st unit tests which started on 7th of March.

These are some of my memories of winter my holiday which I enjoyed and also studied a lot. I hope next holiday will also happen like this.
