Promising start of the year to Manjushree students
It is the start of the new academic year in colleges in India and our Manjushree students are returning refreshed after their vacation. Some managed to take part time jobs during the holidays and others returned to Manjushree to help with teaching and caring.
Of the 4 Manjushree students who completed XII grade examinations in the spring, 3 passed all subjects first time. The last student had to re-take one subject and I am happy to say she has now passed the re-take.
2 of the girls gained admission to colleges in Mangalore, 1 reading Law and the other Journalism. The 3rd girl has applied to study nursing and the boy is taking a BA in college in Tamil Nadu.
Good news from Manjushree, as reported to me by one of the teachers:
There was a competition held by the District Commissioner. There were two categories one was to draw a logo for the Tawang website and the other was to write an essay on Tawang as a smart city. Many schools took part and our school took all the First three positions in painting and also some got consolation prizes painting. In the essay competition our school got the third position (Jambey from class Viii ) The children will be getting their prizes on independece day that is on 15th August, presented by the District Commissioner of Tawang district at the parade ground.
Another of our class IX students gained second position in a public speaking competition in monpa dialect held in tawang where again various schools participated.
This is good news indeed - our students are competing against hundreds of other children from the mainstream schools of the area.
FMVSO is proud to be part of these successes - Trustee Di teaches Art and English on her regular visits to Manjushree!
