The DPKS school has already taken its “ EXTRA-mile” two years before, when the campus consciously decided to take the big leap of effortfully making the school a Plastic and JUNK free zone . Thus the Dragonites did their big share of contributing in the times which stares grim on our faces with the frantically and alarming accelerating Environmental degrading issues. The campus of 1000 people consciously and unanimously choose not to have Canteens on campus, encourage 100% the Tiffin culture and admonishes the cruel and insolent littering habits, thus at DPKS it has become a norm to be Eco lovers as wished and propagated by our founding father and supported by Construction Designer at , London, whose entire idea is an ECO friendly world model school. Since, 5th June calls as a global day to dedicate our selves to the cleaning day drive (though a single day will not reap results). The senior students of the school went out on a community cleaning drive into our Shey village and were not very happy to have come across such ALARMING heaps of garbage dumped by the people so CALLOUSLY everywhere! The water SOURCE too were not spared. This drive was in ALLIANCE with the WATERKEEPER project in the HIMALAYAS, which has now been structured into our school ALMANAC under the guidance of Ms. Deachen (the water keeper officer). Thus the crusade against the pollution of environment takes its right place in the regular academics.

 

As a part of the much needed integrated programme of disseminating LIFE SKILLS, CAREER COUNSELING and GUIDANCE DPKS swung into full action to organize the curated student friendly and inspiring programme by the name INSPIRE to ASPIRE turning on to its 4th chapter. The Middle and the Senior students were enthralled to have highly interactive and guided session with the young and dynamic Jigmat Angchuk trainer & Counselor @ Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development. It was indeed a day of much learning wrapped in fun.

 

The students of Std. 7th under the able guidance of Ma’am Jigmet Lamo took the morning presentation to a towering level with their audacious topic on awareness on Child Protection and safety, labelled “good touch! Bad touch!”. It was a pride filled moment for the faculty to see the level of confidence in the students to present such a sensitive topic with elaboration, ease and information. They left no layers unturned or folded to inform their school mates of the very much needed education on child Protection of all kinds (and they being vulnerable) be it school, family or public places. It was a 30 minutes’ presentation rolled into a variant form with enactments, information and debate. The prog concluded with the Principal reinforcing and throwing light on the same in the local context.

It was yet another ministerial visit at the DPKS sprawling campus. During his brief visit to the Leh city, the Education minister of our western province of Maharashtra, Sh. Vinod Tawde invested his day’s itinerary to pay a visit to learn the daily functions of our unique and creative school. He took all the quality time to visit several classes, interact with students and completed an entire campus visit accompanied by the school Principal, Coordinator and the student council. After an elaborate interaction with the school and its authorities, Sh.Twade expressed keenness to organise school exchange progs with his state and promised all possible arrangement for Professional Learning Trainings at his disposal for the DPKS faculty.

The second team of teachers of Druk Padma Karpo during their Annual Training and Exposure tour to almost a sister school to DPKS as both share similar vision and values when it come to love for the Environment. Founded on the concrete ethos of experimental and engaging learning, the Nirmal Bharti stepped forward to facilitate the Training programme on account of the two school heads mutual visits to each other campuses to take back best practices . Our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to Principal Charu…… and her fabulous team of teachers for rendering stepping stone to our teacher.

Founder’s Day is a special day for any institution, especially for one that is striving to impart the highest quality of all round education while ensuring that the ancient culture of its people and land continues to be nurtured and preserved. On 24th September, Druk Padma Karpo School, Shey celebrated its Founder’s Day, albeit a less pompous one than previous years. The school, which is a very personal project of His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa, which was was founded in the year 2001 and has been a pioneer in the field of education in Ladakh, ever since. In the past five years alone, over 400 students have successfully passed out of the school under the priceless leadership and guidance of His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa (Founding Father) and His Eminence Skyabje Thuksey Rinpoche (Chairman, DPKS). Keeping in mind the entering of His Eminence Zhichen Bairo Rinponche (His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa’s beloved father) into the Parinirvana state, earlier this month, the school decided to pay him a silent homage, while keeping the Founder’s Day commemorations modest and minimum. To do this, the teachers and students of the school got together to write a heart-rending ode in Bothi to their founding father. The song is a declaration of love, admiration and gratitude for His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa. Here is a translated excerpt of the song: “On this Founding Day, We, the teachers and students Pay homage to you, Oh loving, giving father and Guru!” His Holiness has been an ambassador of kindness, compassion, peace and rightfulness, who has positively influenced the lives of millions through his teachings. And the members of the DPKS family will be forever indebted to him for being their guiding light.
