Handwriting Olympiad: First Round

In January 2019 nine students participated in a Handwriting Olympiad through Pentasoft. The certificates were finally able to be distributed today for the first round. Of the nine, five achieved an A grade, and the others achieved B and C. Those with A grade have been invited to proceed to the next round this month.

Special congratulations go to R Lalruatsangi (V) for achieving first position. She received a special certificate and medal.

Ministry Visit from Islary Family

We have been blessed this week with the presence of the Islary family who are based in Gossaigaon, Assam. Mr Islary is Boro, while his wife is Nepali, and together they have had almost two decades of ministry in Nepal, West Bengal and Assam. Now they are settled in Gossaigaon where they run their own parachurch ministry called Divine Repairer Ministry, a place of prayer and healing for all people. Mr Islary is also involved with a local Bible College and is also on the board of the National Christian Council (NCC), representing Assam and taking steps to support persecuted Christians in the region.

They came to visit the school since they had previously worked together with our Principal on the mission field many years ago. They brought their talented young daughter Jemima (18), who inspired the children by demonstrating that young people can also be anointed with gifts of preaching and singing. As a family they had many opportunities during their stay to minister to the school and to a local church through their preaching and singing.

We will remember them in our prayers and hope that their ministry continues to flourish. Their dream is to establish 1) Supporters for their own Divine Repairer Ministry and 2) A Mizoram branch of the NCC, which currently does not have any Mizo representation.

Annual Sports 2019

Annual sports were held at Aizawl Lammual on 25-26 April 2019. Everyone from Class V upwards was able to participate in a variety of sporting activities and had a great time representing their various houses and making new friends from different classes, which is especially important at the beginning of the academic session.

The confined classes (KG-Cl IV) spent just one day of sports very successfully in the school hall. Every child was able to take part and had a memorable day. The second day was spent holding a parents-teachers meeting.

Schoolbags Donated to Bethany Colony Leprosy Association

We are pleased to be able to show pictures of our DIS schoolbags being received by students at the school organised by the Bethany Colony Leprosy Association in Andhra Pradesh. The children who attend live in the colony because their parents or other relatives are still suffering from leprosy and the Association provides such families with a means to survive.

Pastor Emmanuel of the Laymen’s Evangelical Fellowship has been responsible for bringing the Colony to the attention of our school in the past, and he recently established a formal relationship between the Colony and the Leprosy Mission branch in Mizoram, who now take an active role in looking after the community.

The community and the school have many needs, especially for workers, but when the need for schoolbags was expressed we were delighted to be able to contribute in a small way to the ministry that goes on there.

Easter Youth Retreat

It’s not every year that Easter falls within the school session, and every time it happens we try to provide the hostellers with an interesting way to spend the special holiday. This year, after just one week at the hostel, we sent all the hostellers to stay over at the Synod Conference Centre for an Easter Youth Retreat organised by Pastor Emmanuel of the Laymen’s Evangelical Fellowship. We have a long-standing relationship with Pastor Emmanuel and we believe the hostellers gained a lot from the retreat. They had teaching from guest preachers from outside Mizoram, praise and worship led by our very own Sir Toshi, our new hostel warden-cum-chaplain, and they had the chance to experience a few nights in the city with their new friends.

State-Wide Winners of Energy Club 2019

We are super proud to announce that under the expert leadership of Miss Chhanpuii, Divine Intervention School’s Energy Club was awarded first position out of all the other participating schools in Mizoram. This is in recognition of all the different activities that were organised by the club, comprising Class VIII students. They took several surveys, held a school debate and contributed to several essay and drawing competitions to promote energy awareness.

Some students also took home individual prizes as can be seen in the pictures below. It’s a great achievement for all the members of the club as well as for the school.

Maths Competition for Class VIII to X

Students from Class VIII to X took part in this year’s Mizoram Mathematics Society Competition. Sir LSa gave them good guidance and they came out saying it was simple! We hope their confidence will be reflected in their results, which will be announced in December.
