Yangneer CPS conducts Sports Day
Yangneer Community Primary School in Trashigang observed its Sports day on 12 December.
The day was supposed to be conducted sometimes in the month of October but since it coincided with Sherig Century Celebrations it was postponed to the December month.
The sports meet was a half day event but it comprised various activities such as relay race, high jump, long jump, caterpillar race, balloon blasting, cock fights and chocolate snatching and so on.
Cash prize was awarded to the Druk house who received the prize for ‘best house of the year’.
Parents, shopkeepers, lamas, local residents and staffs joined the team as audience to observe the sports day. The Chief Guest of the day was the Gewog’s Administrative Officer.
The event was conducted in the Yangneer CPS ground. The School has 166 students and seven teaching staffs.
Village hopes for better commercial farming
Chongshing gewog is maintaining their farm road with support of the Indian Government fund which will benefit 249 households of the gewog together with Denchi and Mandi village.
The maintenance of the road facilities will be completed by this month.
According to Gewog Gup Pema Dorji heavy rainfall during the monsoon season slashed off the road and it was not safe to travel.
Therefore the 17.2 km road is constructed to enable villagers to transport oranges and potatoes, the main cash crop of the community.
Villagers have started to rejoice in anticipation since proper road connectivity will help them transport their cash crops to neighboring countries on time and at cheaper transportation costs.
Apart from absent road facilities the gewog has water facilities to individual households. Initially two households had to share one water source.
