Blog of the Week – Blowing in the Wind

In her blog post Blowing in the Wind, BCF teacher Vicky describes a fun venture she planned and successfully executed with her students at Samtengang MSS in Wangdue!

“For the past week my 3 class VIII sections have been studying an essay called “Prayer flags blowing in the wind” which I thought combined perfectly with the song lyrics of “Blowin’ in the wind” by Bob Dylan which just happened to be included as a poem in the same unit. From the moment I saw the titles I knew I would want to fly prayer flags with them once we had done the hard yards.” – Vicky Chartres

“I knew it would be a hit with the students and was really looking forward to it. Their spirits were not in the slightest bit dampened by the drizzling rain and they were quick to point out that rain is in fact a lucky omen…No-one was at all concerned about how wet they got and we will all have the pleasure of watching our prayer flags send their prayers to the heavens for the rest of the year.” – Vicky Chartres
