Tise Himalayan International School (THIS) Siliguri, West Bengal, India

The doors are open!

FB IMG 1522500561470The first children with culturally Tibetan background, aged 6 to 12 from the Nepalese region Dolpo have now arrived at the boarding school in Siliguri, West Bengal / India and thus in their new life. They will spend the next 8 to 12 years there. For the moment it is planned to accommodate and educate about 80 children. In the next few years, the school will be expanded so that about 400 children can live there. Before the children are brought from Dolpo to Siliguri, they stop in Kathmandu for a few days. There, they have a medical examination as well as they visit S. E. Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche and get his blessing. Then they move on to Siliguri. Meanwhile, almost 70 students have arrived there. The pedagogical and didactic practice and methods at Tise Himalayan International School (THIS) are very modern. The pedagogical director, Lama Norbu, is a very experienced man who successfully had been the director of the boarding school in Lubra / Mustang for 14 years. So far, the THIS has been officially recognised by the government for primary and lower secondary education up to the 10th grade, so that an intermediate school-leaving certificate is possible to achieve. The school goes far beyond the usual Indian literacy programs. It is planned to establish secondary level II. However, Sec. II can only be applied for in five years, as the Indian educational law requires a successful runtime of the school of five years in order to allow an application. Yet, the Education Office has already indicated that the approval can be expected if these first five years go well.
