The Mid Term break was filled with exhilarating moments for the Yoezerling family as we were deeply involved in various activities to keep ourselves
A brief glimpses into our purposeful engagements were as follows:
1. Summer camp
In a maiden effort to engage students productively in learning program, the school initiated a summer camp from 2nd July till 11th July, 2015 to
This is to inform all that the school will be closing for the summer break 2015 w.e.f. 1st July – 15th July, 2015. We would like to wish all the members of Yoezerling family a very happy summer break.
The school will re-open as follows:
Boarder students : 15th July, 2015 @ 5:00pm
Day-scholar students : 16th July, 2015 @ 8:00 am
In our modest attempt to promote the dying culture of Zhungdra/Boedra and Lozay, Yoezerling family organized Zhungdra/Boedra competition on 29th May and Lozey competition on 12th June, 2015.
Both of these programs were expected to receive a very luke warm response but when the programs were actually rolled out, there was euphoria amongst the family members. All the boedra songs were beautifully sung with rhythmic steps brining in the much present simplicity in such tradition. The Zhungdra songs were also sung so meticulously that the MPH appeared like a divine sanctuary.
Lozey also kept all audience rapt with attention throughout the 2 hour long program. Each participant’s witty and intelligent play of words received thunderous claps from audience that reverberated through the MPH. Even as the competition was over, we could overhear students trying recite their versions of lozeys as they walked along the corridors.
Therefore, it was such solace to listen/watch and also know that our children still have traditional skills vibrant in them; all we need to do is to help them bring it.
As the nation gears up to celebrate the READING YEAR, Yoezerling family too rolled up our sleeves and decided to make our usual reading period on Wednesdays a bit different. Hence, the School adopted the following
measures to make reading more lively and engaging:
1. Walking and Reading
2. Reading pledge by each class and teachers which will culminate into awarding the “THE VORACIOUS READER” of the year.
3. Sharing by teachers in the assembly
4. Reading competition amongst the students
5. Readers’ theatre
After the conduct of each of the above mentioned program, we also intend to flash up opinions of students and staff on the program. So, please stay tuned with us!
