English department had organized competitions for both lower as well as the higher division. Poetry writing competition was held forclasses from VII to X and presentation on poetry for XI and XII. The students from various classes presented their creativity andingenuity on the walls filled with various elements of poetry and poems written by students. None of the classes failed to impress thejudges and visitors. It was also an interactive session for the students to learn more about poetry by interacting with differentclasses. The day ended with Penden Sayang of XII Arts A reading the poem The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.

 

“Poetry is eternal graffiti written in the heart of everyone.” Lawrence  Ferlinghetti.

One of the poem written to commemorate the World Poetry Day.

UA: A School of Will

Nestled amidst the cocoon of the wilderness,

through the narrow gorge,

through the indiscernible depth of the sea;

heralds an enigmatic edifice of stone.

A monument so majestic,

a temple to all inquisitives;

thirsty for a word of wisdom

in a quest to quench the soul.

In rhythms and symphonies,

every scholar doth sing;

praises of this magnificient institution;

Ugyen Academy, still at its zenith.

Gyensophodrang Tour Program

Students of Classes VII and VIII visited Gyensophodrang at Tshostasa, Punakha on November 3, 2017 for their Study Tour.

Gyensophodrang isan old age home for retired monks. Study Tour is an important component of academic programme in Ugyen Academy,

especially tailored to provide opportunity for our junior students to directly interact, explore, experience and learn from beyond the four walls

of their classrooms.  Besides academic objectives, this study tour was designed to involve our students in understanding the emotional needs

of old age members in a family, role of grandchildren in understanding the problems of grandparents and in understanding why must they

spend time with their grandparents during vacations, instead of finding solace in the company of electronic gadgets, social media and

antisocial activities. Students also took part in a cleanup of the Gyensophodrang’s surrounding.
