Dharamshala — Tibetan political leader Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay spoke at a ceremony on April 10th honoring the 128 class XII students graduating from TCV Suja School in Bir, Himachal Pradesh. These students, mostly from Tibet, are the first batch to graduate in Humanities from the TCV Suja School.
"Many of you are from Tibet and you carry a lot of hopes placed by your parents and families in Tibet in terms of education. The Central Tibetan Administration considers it an important duty to act as your guardian and ensure you achieve the best of results in education," Sikyong said at the event attended by the staff and students of the school and other local dignitaries.
Sikyong went on to say that Tibetan students have an added responsibility in their education, as it not only serves the purpose of benefiting their own lives, but also serves as a contribution for the greater Tibetan cause.
"The present cabinet gives education the top priority and accordingly makes a huge investment in it," Sikyong said adding that there is a direct link between education and development of a society.
"We carry on our shoulders the hopes and aspirations of our brethrens inside Tibet and the only way we can go about fulfilling that hope and aspiration is through education," Singsong said.
Sikyong shook hands and presented a Khata to every graduating student and wished them luck for their college after urging all the students to "invest at least 10 hours of everyday for your education in order to succeed."
