The College joined the nation in celebrating the most momentous and joyous 113th National Day of Bhutan.
The celebration began with a lighting of butter lamps in the Rigsum Gonpo Hall (Prayer Hall) of the College for the continuity of the Institution of Monarchy, Wangchuck Dynasty, Peace and Prosperity of the country. It was followed by offering of Marchang and singing of the Gaylpoi Zhabten for the continued good health and long life of His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck, His Majesty Druk Gyal Zhipa and the royal family members. After the Marching and Zhabten, all faculty, staff and students passionately listened to His Majesty’s National Day Address which was live-streamed from Pungthang Dewachengi Phodrang.
The faculty, staff and students rejoiced over a variety of cultural items and musical performances which were beautifully choreographed on patriotic songs and dances befitting the occasion. The faculty and staff also presented a few items in between that added to the jubilation and rejoicement of the occasion.
The morning programme concluded with a Tashi Laybay followed by a lunch for all the attendees in the College dining hall.
In the afternoon, as part of the 113th National Day celebration, the finals of the first ever Champions Cup soccer tournament organised by the BEd Arts IV ‘A’ was played between the organising Class i.e., BEd IV Arts ‘A’ and PgDE ‘B’. Although both the teams battled hard with a real warrior’s spirit to take home the winning trophy and kept the spectators exhilarated and rapturous throughout, the game ultimately ended in favour of BEd IV Arts ‘A’.
