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."

Idga shared her experience “From the very beginning I love art and craft, and recently I started taking interest in converting waste materials like bottles, papers, clothes etc, into nice art and craft or fine products. 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.

Republic Day 26 January 2020

It is a day to remember when India's constitution came into force on January 26, 1950, completing the country's transition toward becoming an independent republic.
Republic Day represents the true spirit of the independent India. Military parades, displays of military equipment and the national flag are important symbols on this date. India's national flag is a horizontal tricolor of deep saffron (kesaria) at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportion.
Thanks to the teachers and students for believing in yourself and giving their 100%. You all deserve it! I congratulate you all on behalf of our DPKS Family. Bravo and you guys nailed it. 1st position in march-past (parade) and 3rd position in cultural perfomance. Here is a glimpse of this very special day.

Note of gratitude and adieu from The Principal's Desk:

These 5 years and 4 months of my association with DPKS have been the most fascinating period of my life time so far, I am overwhelmed and intensively emotive in my blood and veins. It has truly been days and years of Superlative team work and Inspiration. I could not have been luckier to have been loved and accepted as a young Principal {Five years back} just as a raw novice. Things at DPKS were extra ordinarily remarkable rewarding and hugely challenging at the same time, but the brightness in the eyes and the warmth in the voices of my loving students kept me going undeterred at all times. I am completely convinced as to why teachers are held at high pedestal of respect and love as timelessly ” Guru” " Teacher “ " the transformer" " the molder" " the shaper" and to larger extent producer of human of fine kinds. We the teachers are offered supreme Salutations and reverence….. it is but obvious because from times continued we have been considered the light which guides and brightens the life of our pupils. I have to state that my story of learning, unlearning and teaching will be a moment in time that I will shelf in the core of my heart and cherish it life time .Nothing so far has equaled the excitement, reward and exhilaration as at DPKS. Today I take this final opportunity to thank endless number of people for your love, support and unwavering faith in me. Each one in my story at DPKS has inspired my team and me to courageously and confidently set milestones and bench mark in the field of teaching and learning and with a clear vision in our eyes, equaling the passion in our hearts pushed beyond limits to better education in all possible realms. I am supremely thankful to all the Sponsors in individual and Collaborative capacity. Thank you all for your pure “unconditional” love and support in shaping and nurturing a precious human life through education. Thank you each who have been minor or majorly associated with Druk Padma and have rendered kind words or hand. Thank you dear parents of my students for your pillar support and belief in me and for going that extra mile……I am supremely humbled and intensely encouraged till eternity. An enormous Thank you to H. Holiness , Gyalwang Drukpa for envisaging this Gem in the desert called “Padma Karpo”. I have been exclusively fortunate to have had his support, blessings and love. Finally Thank you all my wonderful students, you keep the fire on in me !!! Whatever little I am today is entirely because of you all. To all my wonderful students in every corner….within or out of DPKS……I love you all and wish the best for each one of you. I am honored to have many of you visit me and encouraged my little work for life time. Remember, never stop learning as learning never stops.
A warm Julley !
