It was a great day and the children had parctised for a week to present their dance . The students presented their one dance with great joy and full of life in beatiful traditional costumes. They all looked lovely and their choice of music was local and very tasteful. The judges presented the final result which was extremely close. 

First prize went to Hillary House , second Tenzing House and third to Pasang Lhamu house. They all received a prize being a medal. The dance competition also celebrated the first student year within the new school building that was built by NGTF. Our special thanks goes to miss Seima Subedi teacher who spent many hours with the children teaching and choreographing the dances that the children had learned. Our thanks  to the Head Master Mr Rajan Patak and all the teachers of Sundardevi Lower Secondary School for organising the successful dance competition.
