Happy Thanksgiving from Jhamtse Gatsal!

As he bid us farewell last week, Dr. Frank told us we were “richest place on Earth.” What did he mean?

Tenzin Norbu

Doctor Frank called us the “richest place on Earth” because our place is so nice and also is a place where love and wisdom are here. In Jhamtse Gatsal School, Genla and amalas also care for us. And also we never see a place like our school.

Konchok Norbu

He means that in our school the children help each other and also they share knowledge to each other. And our school is in top of mountains.

Mani Wangmu

In my opinion it means that here at Jhamtse are full of mountains, and the members of Jhamtse are kind, love, and take a good care of each other. It is the most harmoniest place. Whenever people come, they love our school.

Shanti Tamang

He means that he gets love and care from us and he loves this place. We care for each other and we are like a family. When people come to our school as volunteers, they live as one family with our school.

Warm wishes from all of us here at Jhamtse!
Some posters by the kids greeted us over breakfast this morning:

By lunch, a flock of feathered friends from Kindergarten had joined in the decoration:

Finally, a few Class 8 students do a bit of creative writing on the prompt of gratitude:
