Shachukul Gonpa School

This Gonpa school is home to 40 novice monks and we arrived as the snow could be seen falling on distant mountains, but our welcome was once again as warm as it could be. The books were soon sorted amidst the usual sneak previews of books that catch the eyes of the children as they spot future good reads and anticipate time to enjoy the many books they are coding and sorting. The older children then responded to ‘Sameer’s House’ by drawing pictures of their own homes and villages in a workshop with me. Next the younger ones were taking on an adventure with Dechen Yangdol as four animals outwit a hunter in the tale of ‘Four Friends’ They then responded by producing pictures of a scene which most left an impression on them.
