Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!

Here I am …back with Druk School, after a gap of two years, looking forward in making school life the most happy and memorable ones for all associated with Druk!

I come back solely to ensure Druk School gets back its parity of esteem and regain her status as the top school in the country and assist my Beloved King in ensuring our children grow up with dignity, love, compassion and hope.

I come with a new vigor and a new programme to upgrade the school to higher secondary level, though not at the cost of the present system, but to ensure our children gets a choice of 13 years of continued stimulating and loving environment to grow up into happy and responsible citizens of tomorrow and be an Achiever in his or her own way!

HI...I am back on my page again!

Hi Everyone,

My sincerest apologies for not being in my page for so long. I promise you that now onwards, I would be regular with my updates!

Today, the 20th November, 2013, was a very emotional day for all of us at Druk School since we had a final meeting amongst the subject teachers, students and parents of the first  Druk cohort of the Bhutan Secondary Certificate Examination(Class X). We were honoured with the presence of the most supportive parents who trusted us  and thus made their children the pioneers of the BSCE at Druk!We were so privileged to have their support till the end. Thank you  ,dear parents, for all you did to give your children the voice and the space to grow independently. They have  made  you proud.

The precious first cohort comprises of  sixteen students ,eight girls and eight boys. Each one …..the Jewel of Druk School. Time flies and these beautiful swans are now ready to fly .Most of them have been with us for so long…...their entire basic education  years with us and how they make us so proud  now as they stand as responsible young  leaders  who have  been real role models for all at Druk School.

These  swans have grown together and worked amidst tears and laughter and have become stronger as a team. They are fantastic team players. They are our dream  team and we are confident that they would succeed as usual in the BCSE and in life. Today, as we formally   thanked them and released them from the rigor of  everyday routine work, we felt good since we believe in them and know they would be alright without us being around them. They have grown and they have won and knowing  this, we are happy.

 

Well…. For the rest of the Drukians…the  annual exam is on wef 21st November and I know all of them must be busy burning the midnight oil. After all my students also believe in the  maxim ,”Bhutanese work best under stress”. And as ever, my students will appear for their examination in the same happy manner, each child the happiest after each exam paper. Schedules may change, weather may change, exam papers may change, but for each little Drukian,  their happiness quotient never changes and I am so glad for that.

I know I  expect too much sometimes from my students but  when I see my little ones of PP-III, coming to school early morning(8am) without any fuss and my seniors(IV-X) leaving school at 4.30pm in the November cold without any anger, I do feel great satisfaction that my children have learnt to persevere and take the challenges stoically. I call this preparing for life and I feel so good about it.

 

Well till my next post, here’s me wishing all my very dear  students the very best in their Annual Examination and with heartfelt prayers for each one ‘s success, happiness, good health and peace of mind.Love you always!  Mam Principal.

 

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

 Dear PTA Members, Parents and my very precious students,
First of  all let me thank each one of you for your valuable contribution in  making Druk School the top school in Bhutan for the consecutive fourth year! 
Without your strong partnership, this would not have been possible.We take great pride in having the best team of parents and student with us.
Well few new programmes have been instituted as discussed with you during the general  parent-school  meetings.I would like to thank all the parents who made it for the meetings and so very kindly endorsed the proposals put up by the school.We regret that few parents who could not make it for the meetings have once again disappointed  their children since the children take  great pride in their parents involvement at the school.
I am glad that the parents endorsed the Student Support System of Druk School and their commitment to ensure a disciplined lifestyle at home to support the well intended programmes at school for the development of each child.I would also like to thank the parents who accepted the new responsibility as as the PTA members on their election.We are proud of you and we look forward to working closely with you to make Druk School the happiest school for your children.
This year ..a new initiative towards decentralization and  empowerment,  the school is managed by one of the four houses,Air,Water,Earth and Fire, for a month on rotation basis.They organise and manage the school in all areas .A lot of  innovative  strategies are being being put in place.Earth House members did an excellent job for the month of March and  for the month of April,the Air House is in command.
Instead of the clubs on Wednesdays, we have  Inclusive Education for PP-III, Design for Change programmes instituted for levels IV-VIII and Career/Value Education for IX and X. Children find this more useful and are enjoying the new focus.
The NC Election is here now and the teachers of Druk School have already made our choice of National Council  Members through the postal ballot.I pray and urge all our parents to kindly take an active part in the 2013 election since we need to be role models for our children as well as ensure we make the country stronger, happier and more prosperous for our children.
Well...I am always around and would love to be of any help in any matters whatsoever!
Till next post..cherrio...Smile  and be Happy!

WISHING EACH ONE OF YOU A VERY VERY HAPPY INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HAPPINESS !!:D

The academic session has started off with a high...with all the staff and students back to school on the dot of time, with a lot of passion, happiness and dreams of new beginnings and hopes.
The children are also excited about the new library, a new additional IT lab  and the Geography Lab,which should be ready by the end of March.We aspire to provide  the best of facilities to  the children in all areas so that they can also aim for the  best in life.This year is also very meaningful to us since we will be  seeing our first cohort  of Class X pioneering the BSC Examination and we are very confident that they would make us proud.
Looking forward in meeting all the distinguished parents of students of classes PP-VI on 23rd March to continue and  strengthen our partnership.
Once again wishing each one you the Happiest Day of Your Life on 20th March,2013.

Welcome back to an Exciting New Academic Year.

My Precious Students, parents and Staff,
Thank you for all your wonderful input in making 2012 academic year a huge success!The academic year ended   with a lot of satisfaction and output.I would like to thank all the parents and students who made it for the Awards Day.Your presence, as usual, gave us a reason to strive for our best input .The school formally closed today,19th December though the Deputy principal and I am still trying to wind up the official  obligations.We will be around till the end of December.So, do contact us if you need our assistance.
My humble request to the parents of class IV students(2013 cohort)  is to assist your child to practice writing with a cello gel pen(blue) since students in class IV upwards write in inked pens.They would need a lot of practice to be neat and form their letters well.
An appeal to  teachers and parents to read the article titled Creature Comfort,page 147-152 from the Readers Digest,September issue.I found it very valuable coz I got an insight to the Fetal Alcohol  Syndrome (FAS) which we never consider in the school while working with some of the special needs children.This could be prevalent in our country since alcohol consumption is so culturally correct and abundantly available.
Well..till next time, let me wish all you  a very very happy vacation and quality time with your family.



Thank You Parents
