Happy Winter Holiday

Message from Mingur Angmo, acting principal, to the students

"As we break for a long winter holiday, we want to express our gratitude to each one of you for your kind and warm support. Our school is off for a winter break which will start from 13th December, 2020. The motive of this year winter break is to spend a quality time with your family and to get away from mobile phones, by keeping all in our mind we tried to assign such homework which doesn’t need any help of mobile phones. So it’s our humble request to each student to kindly stay away from mobile phones at least during this winter break. Wishing you all a Happy Winter Holiday. May you all have a good time with your families."

We are taught art and craft in our school and some of them I learnt from internet. I would like to thanks Ladakh Science Foundation for organizing such a wonderful event. I really enjoyed the whole journey of converting waste material into a fine art piece. This also helps us in reducing waste and to keep our surrounding clean and healthy.”

To have a break from a regular academic work we are happy to assign some life skills activities to our students, as we believe that learning comes in many forms and there are so many activities like-gardening, crafts, cooking etc. which can be done and learn from home and which also contribute to their learning in a broader sense. And our students start their up-cycling project, as a part of their life skill assignment, we started this project by making home-made face mask, as wearing masks has made mandatory for all and when in public it helps to prevent the spread of coronavirus, it’s better to wear your home made mask. And by the end of Day-3 we got amazing response from our wonderful students. Thanks to all the teachers, parents and students of Druk Padma Karpo School for making this project a successful one.
Please ensure that you all Stay home, stay safe and stay healthy.
