School-trip to Lungleng Village

On Saturday, 26 November, Classes V and VI had a joint outing to Lungleng village to find out more about local Mizo history. The village is of special historical interest because it has preserved the home of one of the most famous Mizo chiefs, Khamliana Sailo, whose life and achievements are well-known. He was one of the first of the Mizo people to quickly acquire literacy in reading and writing with the help of the pioneer missionaries, but his legacy also extended to his outstanding gift for diplomacy and his wise leadership of his people at the height of the British colonial presence in Mizoram.
