pelkhil school doing anything in excess is drugs including medicine everyone in this world knows that but most people choose to not follow it actually what are drugs drugs are nothing but the medicine we take ­ the only difference is that they are taken in excess without a prescription doing drugs is very bad for you physically and mentally you should know that drugs are a slow form of suicide but you just don t know it yourself if you re a drug addict you re slowly killing yourself taking drugs has many disadvantages some people say that drugs make you happy that taking drugs transports you to another world but that is totally wrong no matter how depressed you are drugs are not the only solution talking to somebody about it definitely helps but not drugs when you take drugs you don t know who you are and you don t know where you are and what you are doing that s when you become mischievous and get into trouble by dechen yangzom class viii if you decide to take drugs somewhere down the years you ll look back and regret it most people have to learn it the hard way they sometimes only realize how bad it is when they ve done something that can t be taken back again so i hope you choose to stay away from drugs and live a happy life children should be disciplined discipline is the practice of training people to obey rules and behave well it involves doing one s duty regularly and sincerely discipline is the essence of life and its absence is nothing else except a deplorable state of anarchy discipline is necessary in every walk of life and in every activity if you want to know why discipline is necessary we should first know what discipline is for any work that is to be done an individual has to have before him some goal children must accept their authority and obey the order or instructions willingly discipline whether it is external or internal requires a great self control discipline is like the bank of the river which does not obstruct the flow of the river discipline makes all the difference between success and failure so i agree that children should be disciplined because it will be better for their future the great writer edmunds spencer correctly said the stern discipline persuades all nature by lotey jamtsho class viii 6

pelkhil school the importance of by dechen wangmo namgyel class ix education if you feed a hungry man today he will be hungry again tomorrow but if you teach him how to fish he eats his whole life ­ chinese proverb the above proverb is very true when we talk about education through education the country tries to teach the people this way people can earn a living and lead a healthy life so what does education mean education means being educated if one has received education one is knowledgeable about the world country customs culture and society education also means getting knowledge and skills from the teachers in the school if you get a lot of knowledge and skills you are well-educated if you can get education you have knowledge and skills you can use this knowledge and skills to live a good and healthy life with education one can find work and give services to other people people who are educated do very well in life doctors engineers scientists and businessmen are the result of education people can become anything if they are educated in life as it leads to success education is very important for the country because it increases the literacy rate and the ability of the people to lead a healthy life education also makes people more developed one may possess a lot of wealth very good health or a lot of close relationships but none of these are worth as much as education since they can be lost one day wealth can be exhausted if not managed well health can deteriorate if not taken good care of life too ends one day for everyone since we are mortal whereas the education that one has received is not subject to any of the above as education is the only thing that can be taken along with us whenever we go or when we die knowing that education is important our government has been providing us free education many schools have been built in remote places and the children there have been encouraged to go to school since education is very important we are thankful to the government for providing us free education in conclusion education can be compared to a source of light in darkness it is in fact the most valuable thing in the world we must try and get the best possible education by stuying hard as students by krishna maya limbu class xi arts my hopes and prayers to pelkhil school proud to be students of pelkhil school my school unmatched by the sun the leader of the sun i pray to you remain an excellent school this institute of pelkhil the source of immediate success may its fame continue like ever-flowing thimphu chhu may the school remain pure and safe as the students enjoy the greatest fruit of success may the place of pelkhil have goods and health and long life for our noble vision of peace prosperity in the institute continues to enjoy the fruits of success let the school thrive 7

pelkhil school life is very unpredictable life is not a bed of roses life is like a roller coaster where life tests the capability of a person mentally physically and emotionally how a person is able to cope with the various problems that he/she has to face on a daily basis or periodically life is very unpredictable when you think that everything is going how you thought it would everything turns the other way and to bring our life back to normal is way more complicated than how we normally think it is you have so many things going on in your mind that cannot be shared with anyone even if you want to share there is always the fear that people will either deny what you are trying to say or they will think that you are not a good person from the inside out and this makes a person depressed and mentally disturbed you find yourself lost in some thoughts all the time and not being able to focus on what you are doing in a way you feel totally cut off from the real world sometimes you wish that you could turn back time so that you can rectify the mistakes committed things you said and people you have hurt you wish everything to be normal but it s way too hard you keep trying and trying but every time you are to succeed some problem is bound to occur that makes you feel like a loser and you lose hope which takes a very long time to be regained again ­ when this occurs with you more than once then you start feeling like a complete fool idiot and a stupid person but as one says life is not a bed of roses we have to keep on fighting and put up a brave face every time we face a problem and try to tackle it with the best possible solution that you can think of only in this way will you be able to succeed in your life and make it better than ever there is a saying failure is the stepping stone to success you must not lose hope right after failing in something that you might have tried out instead you must keep trying and trying until you succeed then only will you be successful in life and everything will go according to how you want things to be in your life by sonam yangki class xi arts by kencho tenzin class xi commerce 3 you have cared for me like your own self you have created a meaning for my life you have given me your pure love you have cared for me you have helped me when i was fighting in a corner you have taught me to face the world you have made me feel like something worthwhile you have given me a new life you are everything for me you are the one for whom i care you are the one whom i recognize you are the one whom i remember you are the one whom i was to serve you are the one to be appreciated you are the one for whom i construct my life you are the one with whom i share everything you are everything for me 11
