Career Guidance with Dr PC Biaksiama

Our first visitor of 2018 was none other than Dr PC Biaksiama who came today to give a seminar about career guidance.

He was able to bring an engaging and beneficial message drawing from his illustrious career in the Police and Civil Service, as well as his rich academic experiences and biblical insights following the ten years he spent single-handedly translating the King James Bible into Mizo. He encouraged the students to identify their talents and seek to use their talents whole-heartedly for the benefit of the Mizo society, people and economy.

Admission Deadline for Existing Students: 31st January 2018

We are excited to welcome back all our students after the Christmas and New Year break. There are not many weeks left until the end of the academic session and it is already time to think about next year’s admission.

For existing students, the deadline for applying for admission for the next academic year is the end of January 2018. From February, seats will be made available to new students and will no longer be guaranteed for returning students. It is therefore of great importance that admission is taken as soon as possible for returning students, in order to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to welcoming our students back for the next academic year. Please come to the school office in person for further information or if you need to discuss your financial situation with a member of staff or the principal.

Christmas at DIS Hostel

Every year, our hostellers look forward to the Christmas season, not just for the chance to go home but also for the precious memories that will be formed at the hostel. This year was no exception, and just before we reached December, the campus was already glowing with beautiful lights that only the hostellers get to enjoy after darkness falls each night.

On the 2nd December, we enjoyed our annual Advent programme at the hostel, which for the past few years has consisted of a candlelit variety show, a candlelit dinner and a bonfire. The kids worked very hard and everything was a great and memorable success. They were also excited to see former wardens Joe and Gabriel, who came to join in the fun.

A few videos from this occasion can be viewed on our school Youtube account:

The next day, the entire hostel along with the principal and his family attended the Advent ‘Christmas Carol’ programme organised by the Laymen’s Evangelical Fellowship (LEFI) at the YMA Hall in Khatla. We were thankful to Pastor Emmanuel for inviting us. The whole event was very enjoyable and we were especially proud of our hostellers for their two items, including a beautiful nativity play and a choir performance.

Class X hostellers remain a little longer than the others due to their exams. This gave them the chance to experience an entirely new worship context, thanks to the kind invitation of Pastor Emmanuel again. They attended a special multilingual and multicultural Christmas service at the compound of the Headquarters of the 23rd Sector of the Assam Rifles (Khatla) and once again presented a special item. Our teacher, Miss Manuni (C Lalnunpuii) also sang at both of Pastor Emmanuel’s events. It was a great honour to be invited to spend time with them.

The little church on the compound was started by Pastor Emmanuel himself and has grown over the past few years after he first started with an informal fellowship of about five Christians. It is a privilege to be part of his ministry and we are also thankful for the tokens of appreciation and expressions of hospitality through lunch that he extended to us on both occasions.

2017 has been a year to remember, and we sincerely wish you and your families a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

Children’s Day 2017

About 570 superheroes and superstars turned up at Divine Intervention School today, ready to take on the world! To celebrate Children’s Day, everyone came in fancy dress and a special programme was organised by the teachers. This included two dances by the teachers, some solos and a Miss Fancypants beauty pageant. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and went home happily with cake and Frooti.

Foundation Week 2017

Our school foundation day is the 15th October and it is celebrated differently every year. This year we spent a whole week enjoying a range of activities and competitions.

On Monday, some of the students helped to clean the school while others were involved in preparing some lovely stage decorations. Cleanliness is especially important these days since we are trying to work towards a Clean School Award (Swachh Vidyalaya Puraskar).

On Tuesday morning, we had the school’s first ever debate competition final. Teams from the yellow and green houses did very well and ultimately the green house won, arguing that social media does more harm than good. In the afternoon, Miss Olivia and Miss Jenny led the elocution competition for the second time. We heard excellent poetry recitations from students of Class IV to Class IX with three sets of winners.

On Wednesday, we held a spectacular dance competition in which ten groups displayed their talents and worthy winners were selected by the judges. Meanwhile, everyone had come in traditional cultural dress, so the youngest classes spent the day learning Mizo dances outside. The day ended with an informal ‘lampui’ in the hall.

The kids, including all the hostellers, went home to enjoy an extended weekend break including the Diwali holiday on Thursday. On the Friday, however, the staff and workers met together at Liandova Picnic Spot for a day of recreation and fellowship.

It has been a diverse and enjoyable week for all. Well done to all the participants who put in hours of preparation, as well as the teachers who helped to make it all happen. We expect great things in the year to come!

New YouTube Account

We recently found that there is a growing number of videos on YouTube made by students, ex-students and visitors to the school. In order to bring all these videos together in playlists for anyone interested in our school, we have created a new YouTube account. We may upload our own videos in the future, so be sure to like and subscribe to the channel! There is also a link to the channel at the top our website homepage.

Sex Education Awareness Programme

Mizoram is a State that struggles with a high rate of HIV/AIDS incidences. As such, it is the responsibility of every school to ensure its young people are well-informed.

We were fortunate to have an excellent team of visitors today representing CARE – World Vision India and Living Hope Ministry, including Lalchuanzuali (CZ) Ralte who shared her testimony and personal experiences. Through participatory activities, they explained to Class V – X the important aspects of HIV and AIDS. They also promoted awareness about basic reproductive health pertinent to teenagers going through puberty.

It was an excellent programme and the kids also appreciated the distribution of Waiwai and juice!
