School is currently in session at the Bon Monastery in Dolanji, India.
We recently received this update from one of the monks at the Bon Monastery in Dolanji, India:

The students are divided in to four houses. When the children are not studying they are cleaning and organizing various competitions between these houses including games, essay-writing competitions in both English and Tibetan, costume contests, acting, calligraphy, poem recitation, and physical fitness.
