The big day is here: 1st Oct. :)


 Lets dedicate ourselves to, bring smile on their face:)
Tomorrow, 1st of October, will be the first time that we, as a team, will spend one whole day together focusing on International Day for the Elderly people. The venue will be at the Samdrupcholing Palace (Just below our schoolJ). They say that there will be a guest from various sources. Dasho Dzongdha will be the chief guest.
The theme of International Day of Older Persons 2014 is “Leaving No One Behind: Promoting a Society for All”
The reason to celebrate, International Day for the Elderly is to dedicate honor, respect and care for the grandfather and grandmother. Remember, someday you hope to be included among this group, including me. So, that is time where we need extra love and care.  We need to improve attitudes towards older people and appreciate them. It is fact that, sometimes older people are treated like less important members of society.  That is positively not how I want to be treated when I am older, so let us take care of the elderly in the present and carry it on to the future. Let us manufacture a chain today. So that we can, carry out these chains to generations. This year, all the students will be adopting one elderly person. I too planned to adopt one this year, so that I can give my love and care to him/her.
This day has taken more than weeks to organize which reflects the difficulty in getting everyone in the same room, at the same time.  The following are just a few of the activities taking place tomorrow.
  1.    Cultural show by our school students.
      2.  Adoption of the old age people.
      3.   Lunch for all.
      4.  Entertainment programs.
I will report back on how we get on (with photos!). Keep visiting.:P
Happy Day of Older Persons!!
Greetings from Rupa. :)
