SUNDAY SCHOOL

The goal of Sunday Tibetan School is to immerse our children in Tibetan culture, language, and traditions on a weekly basis in order to instill in them a strong sense of their Tibetan roots and identity. 

Our students range in age from 6-17 and we currently have 50 plus students enrolled. There are 8 levels of Tibetan language classes offered, which are taught by experienced and dedicated teachers. In Performing arts classes, our children learn traditional Tibetan songs, dances, and musical instruments under the expertise of our exceptionally talented and patient teachers, Mr. Lobsang Tsering and Ms. Sonam.

GREEN BOOK(CHATREL) CTA PAGE

Tibetans contributing to Chatrel are issued a Green Book. This book has over the years in effect become the passport of the exiled Tibetans to claim their rights from the CTA. Also in future, it will become a base for claiming Tibetan citizenship. Today, it is used for school admission, school or university scholarship, and employment within the exiled community. Payment of the voluntary contribution is a condition for gaining voting rights in parliamentary elections.
