It is a communal errands......

Our College of Education, Samtse under Royal University of Bhutan offers different types of programmes in Bachelor’s Degree for those who opted to become an unselfishly dedicated teacher in their life. Health and Physical Education Course (HPE) is one elective module conferred to the B.Ed Secondary candidates till date.

Since its conception in two Colleges of Education, i.e. Paro and Samtse, in 2003, this course has been equipping the trainees with generals principles of Health and Physiques which is inevitable in present contemporary society especially in fast changing country like Bhutan.

Health and Physical Education course also offers same credits as other module (ie.12 credits per module) and it is both exam oriented and course work. This module equates any other module offered in Secondary level as it is assessed based on course work and examination (50% each).

But the most interesting thing in our College is that almost 85% of the Trainees think that HPE is co-curricular activity oriented. People have the notion that HPE trainees are responsible for all the co-curricular activities and they tries to look from downwards. Of course by default, we the only 3rd year HPE trainees (only 12 of us) try our best to serve but sometimes we fail due to innumerable unavoidable circumstances and people never realize at this situation including office bearers of the college and commends on their own free will. We welcome such valuable feedbacks and appreciated for their tokens but sometimes it is imperative to realize that conducting co-curricular activity in college is not only for HPE trainees but communal errands of every individual in the college as we are working as team.

As long as we live, we need to be in good health. If we lose good health, we aren’t happy. Physical Education can support our healthy life.

Not too late…………..

College of Education: Samtse
It was tender 2008 when I enter the College with lots of hopes, aspirations and dreams of becoming a versatile person in life. Unexpressed emotions form a flux within my mind due to lots of suspicions and expectations during my three year stay in the College. I was worried because I was not secure enough to take this teaching as profession and I was happy because I have numerous expectations form this college for my personal and professional development.

Three years down the line, today I am up to my own dream and aspirations. I guess all the mysterious doubts about this teaching profession have been cleared vividly and I am confident enough to face any challenges that obstruct my way.

But at the same time, some works are still left fragmentary. There are hardly two months to graduate and I feel some components of professional and personal necessity is not yet finished which is supposed to be completing in the college. Do I have enough time to do everything at one go? It not possible and now it is late for me.

“What did you do during three years of your stay here at college beside your academic works? Did you contribute something which would be helpful for those generations coming hereafter? Did you manage to be friendly with every individual in the college? Did you ever hurt others for any reason and forgive them? What are you taking as a gift of your stay here after you graduation”?

Miraculous Life

Life and Miracle


Every one seems so busy like a buzzing bees in the garden of early blossom of late autumn. Minds lingers faster than the wind with fantasy over hills and vales encountering what not. People hardly realized the world around. They even forget to realize themselves about their doings. So let me remind all of you that……….
Life is a miracle; don’t let it slip away,
Open your heart to others, give of yourself each day.
See the beauty in everyone, regardless of where they’ve been,
Some have a difficult journey, and really need a friend.

Share your gifts and talents, listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about,
Pick a bouquet of flowers, show someone that you care.
Be gracious and forgiving, life is never fair.

Hold on to your courage, you may need it down the road,
We all have a cross to bear; it could be a heavy load.
If you practice all these things, no matter where you roam,
You may find both sun and rain, but you’ll never feel alone.

Life is a miracle, cherish it
Life is a miracle, count it
Life is a miracle, do something with it
Life is a miracle, live it to its fullest

THE BROKEN PAGE


The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth. Life sometimes is a miraculous. Unexpected things are always expected. People never realized that human beings create an environment. Every body seems lost in their own world. Some in the world of romantic, some in denial, some in demise, some in contentment, some in desolation, some in grief and so on. Sometimes it is just like a broken page that swing swiftly by innocent wind ceaselessly to an inexpressible destination. …………..

Vice Chancellor's visit to College

Honorable Vice Chancellor of the Royal University of Bhutan Dasho Dr. Pema Thinley visited our College today at around 8:30 AM and had audience with the trainees and the Lecturers in our auditorium at 9:00 AM in the morning.Honorable Dasho gave us a thoughtful talks which is very much relevant for our profession....
   
"....our gathering today I suppose is due to our past connections, karmic gathering and good merits of every individual gathered here.I take it as opportunity where we get time to celebrate together. It is a 'Tendrel'  and we have to celebrate it............... 

.......Teachers plays a vital role in enhancing the personal happiness of the society. Level of living and happiness can be increased by teachers which ultimately fulfills the aspects of our country's philosophy Gross National Happiness......
.......the world around is our reflection. It reflects about how we view the world. We have to know that even in a bad person have the goodness in him or her. They hardly show like a lightning but we have to be vigilant to see that goodness in that bad person.......

......teaching is all about basic goodness of human beings. We have to teach the children that every moment is precious and different. Each different moment can change our living. Every moment we are changing. Death is just a one big perspective of oneself otherwise we are actually dying every seconds as it ticks on....

......we have to remember that everything is impermanent but at the same time we have to keep in mind the cause and effects. Cause and effects are two inseparable things that surrounds our living. We have to be very Mindful about it and search our soul......because mindfulness is the root of GNH I suppose....

Honorable Vice Chancellor of Royal University of Bhuta, Dasho Pema Thinley
.....you know why do we offer water as 'Choepa' instead of rice, butter etc? This is because water is bountiful  and it is pure offering as we do not feel its finishing like butter which becomes less in quantity if we offer seven cups at alter. Similarly , our teaching is holistic and pure. We have to teach form the heart and let the children learn and live their life happily. Because happiness is the ultimate destination that human beings are looking for................''

Though the main purpose of Dasho's visit was to inaugurate the three new self catering buildings yet we expected Dasho to highlight on the changed in the Ministry and Royal University ie about the entrance examination for the teacher graduates but may be due to time factor, Dasho however could not convience us...

First Co-curricular Activities in Fall Semester 2010

Inter-CG Badminton Championship was held from 9/08/2010 to 16/08/2010.

The Final was graced by Mr. Yeshi Dorji, representative from UNFPA as a guest of honour. We had our college staff teams leaded by director sir.This match was conducted in accordance with the college sports calender 2010 and it is solely for the respective CGs. But it seems that participants and officials are working for their own beneficial as CG councillors hardly visit the tournament. They even had tough time to manage the refreshment at least for the participants (Missed Twice).

Similarly, Inter-CG Table Tennis is going on and it seems it is on track but officials are having tough time to manage the game as some never turn up for the duty..

Next upcoming tournament we have is Inter-CG Basketball tournament. Before fixture drawing, we will have official clinic whereby the respective CG councillors will also take part to avoid the complication during the tournament.
Memories are those treasures that nobody can steal...

Living History in Living Soul...

We prepare for everything. We prepare for whatsoever that may come hereafter. We never realise which comes first; tomarrow or the death. But at last when the death brings her icy hand irrespective of the status, ages, races etc, we go unprepared....
