The second session of Tibet Charity English language and computer classes began today with a simple opening function in the main hall of Tibet Charity.
Besides the staff and the students of Tibet Charity, the function was attended by Ms. Eden Merrit, the lone volunteer teacher who could make it to the function. Due to bad weather, many students too could not attend the function.
Ms. Tenzin Tsephel, while opening the function welcomed the volunteer and the students to the second session of the Education section. She expressed her gratitude to the volunteers, both present and the ones joining us at a later date for taking this considerate decision to come and help the students of Tibet Charity. She informed the students that though only one could make it to the function, three more volunteers would be joining us shortly.
Ms. Eden Merrit then introduced herself as a qualified ESL teacher from Canada. She expressed her happiness for being able to come and work as volunteer.
The Director welcomed her with a traditional Tibetan scarf and expressed his gratitude to her and to those who could not make it to the function. He assured the volunteers that Tibet Charity will be a family away from their family and promised all necessary support during their stay here. He then requested the students to follow the rules governing the functioning of language and computer classes. He said that the language can be best learnt only if the students put into practice what they learn in the class. He concluded his speech by wishing all happy and fruitful stay with Tibet Charity.
The function concluded with the serving of tea and snacks and a group photo.
The classes shall practically start from tomorrow.
