Day Boarding

Day Boarding: Druk School’s Pioneer Venture

In keeping with its vision of making the school a center of academic excellence responsible for imparting knowledge and behavioral skill to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow, the Druk School has introduced “Day Boarding System” for the benefit of all the students at the school since 2008. This scheme is approved by the Ministry of Education.

This service is purely on a non-commercial basis meaning that the school has no financial gain from the service. While the school recommends the parents particularly those having difficulty in guiding their children at home due to various reasons, the decision to enroll or not to enroll lies entirely with the parents. It is to be noted that the day boarding system is no substitute for normal day schooling. The school will evaluate the children based on their own performances irrespective of whether they attend or do not attend the boarding system. The school will not under any circumstances reward or reprimand the children in any way for either attending or not attending the boarding system. The day boarding system will be carried out 3 hours per day 4 times a week from Monday to Thursday. For 2020, we would commence the service with effect from April 2020 to October 2020.
