It takes a great deal of heart bearing and sacrifices for a grand preparation of altar and stage for such program. Everybody could find an opportunity to show how much love and respect what they believe the most. School rimdro was one of the grand programs in which every one was busy like in school picnics.
We had our lams and 'Tshops' from Gangtey shedra headed by a Khempo Truelku who also could shower us with holy blessing(wang) at the end of the rimdro on friday. The monks and the Khempo lebey were very impressed with our effort of preparations and serving them and guests.

New Staffs Welcoming with Promotion Khadar Ceremony
"Coming together is beginning, living together is progress and working together is Success" - by anonymous.
Our outrageous moment of excitement in the cold snowy morning of Phobjikha has something to share to all the family members of the school. We all were gathered in the MPH for welcoming new teachers and support staffs along with the khadar ceremony of grade promoted staffs at 9:00 am. on 18th of Feb.2019. One of the guest of honour present was the proprietor of Gakiling Hotel - a well known SMB member of our school's SMB board. The two hours long program concluded with a humble lunch for all the staffs.
Introducing Staffs & Their Roles to Students
It has been very necessary for the school to make the staffs' acquaintance to the students so that from the beginning of the academic session we can work together towards achieving our common goals. The SMB team lead by Principal himself have introduced each and every teacher and support staff and their designated roles in various academic and co-curricular activities so that any student who wish to work closely can identify staff. The briefing of the school policy and rules that students should follow are to be briefed tomorrow by the staff secretaries.

Visit by Hon. NA Speaker
All the staff and students were so glad to have the 1st visit of Honourable Speaker of National Assembly on 13th of February at 8:30 a.m. His Excellency on addressing his intention of the adhoc visit yesterday also inspired us with a few tips of success that we can always achieve. He said that nothing is impossible and to keep working hard constantly so that any one of us one day would be bestowed with so much of success and power to serve Tsa-Wa-Sum with higher ranks and prestigious position. His excellency's short visit was very fruitful and he was very happy with our gestures and even though the preparations were less trendy. He wished to have a second visit this year with more duration of stay with dinner and rapports that he wants to have with us in near future.
We were also equally happy to welcome class PP's 27 children to the school on 14th of Feb. As usual the Trashi-Khadar ceremony would suffice them of our gestures of warm welcome in the presence of their beloved parents.
With lots of dreams and hopes that are clearly observable on the faces of the parents, their intense prayers and dreams would surely make us feel that now, its our sole responsibility to shape and nurture them as second parents.
The so innocent children of today are going to be sole hope and bread earner and citizens of tha-damchi- and ley-zhung-dre to the unlimited student lives ahead of them.
For the academic year 2019 we hoped that school would receive as many boarder students due to the attraction by new hostel infra-structures and very good promising results of the graduating BCSE candidates of 2018. The admission for various grades coming from feeder schools are admitted in classes 4, 7 and 9 as usual.
Amid of very cold but half brightly glittered snowy valleys of Phobjikha, a group of very strongly aspiring Principal and teaching and supporting staffs of our school, once again treading back to school on 1st of Feb.2019.
Nothing much visible sign of happiness we can see on the faces of the staffs since the water supply is cut off due to harse winter cold and snowfall, but we are much happier when we saw that our BCSE results have been best in the dzongkhag like in the past.
NOTIFICATION FOR WINTER BREAK
Result Day - The final day on school for 2018
Quite obviously we expected some meager thickness of snowfall on the earlier day as it started getting colder towards the end of this academic year. It was a big surprise too to see a blanket of snowfall wishing a very good and warm morning for the much awaited results day for the students.
The examinations committees had their last role to play and it wasn't much good news for the as few as 29 students who failed to make to their higher classes. A huge crowd of parents gathered in MPH despite of unfavourable weather conditions - but i believe for some of them it was a 'Blessed Snowy Day' today.
As the toppers were awarded a set of very attractive prizes, most of the students who turned up to receive their results also have some take away happiness with them as observed through their gestures.
Finally, principal sir reminded parents and students to take note of when to report and how to keep themselves safe and well disciplined during winter break.

Five of the teaching and supporting staffs were confirmed about their transfer this year and the school administration regrets to have in loss of the group of very hard working, experienced and dedicating staff. While six more staff are still waiting for their confirmations. To have a long remembrances of these colleagues, we had a grant farewell party and each of them were wished and some token of gifts for appreciation of their fathomless contributions to the school.
