His Holiness Visit

His Holiness is very happy with the development of the school, especially the introduction of Tibetan Buddhist Philosophical debate in the school along with the Bodhi (Tibetan language) as an important curriculum, first time in any private schools in Ladakh and the introduction of Social Emotional Learning (SEL).

Siddhartha High School is not just once but blessed thrice with the auspicious visit of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Our beloved founder Khenzur Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan is personally in contact with His Holiness from couple of decades and because of his request to the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (OHHDL), whenever His Holiness visited Ladakh had somehow managed to request Him to visit the school in the past couple of decades.

Our Students Stories

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is a compassion based program focusing on peaceful conflict resolution and emotional health. It is also a pillar of Siddhartha High School’s curriculum. They discuss with each other with student’s behavioral changes, their problems with privacy, without imposing positional power. There are some basic but important and helpful materials introduced by Ms. Langri to help learning SEL and its values. We have a charts of “I FEEL” and “I NEED”, where a in first one there are many emotions that a child feels and there are needs according to those feels where we can observe, what state of mind a child is in. There is another chart called “Emotion Thermometer” where we can know how we feel everyday with different emotion. The chart has three main elements, the volcano, the tree and the iceberg. 

It helps growing our students besides the covid.
Both of them have a vision to serve for the Ladakhi community and in between their High school to University they have been especially contributing their time regarding women’s health in summers.
