Teacher’s Day Celebration in Dechenchoeling
May 2nd is celebrated as Teacher’s Day as
well as the Birth Anniversary of the 3rd Druk Gyalpo throughout the
kingdom. This year, the day also marked the establishment of Modern
Education in the country, a century ago.
The day dawned bright and warm unlike previous days, which
had been miserably cold. Staff and students gathered in the assembly ground at
9 o’clock. The celebration kicked off with speeches from captains followed by
the cake cutting ceremony by the Principal. The literary committee also
launched their first ever magazine which is dedicated to the Royal couple to
commemorate Sherig Century.
Teachers were served refreshment as the children performed
various dances. The teachers also proudly presented two dance items. Teachers
exhibited their fun and competitive sides to their nature by joining in the
games conducted (musical chair, find your partner, treasure hunt) in between
the cultural items.
The whole event was organized by the students with the School
Captains taking the lead role. Individual classes also went the extra mile to
show their appreciation for the teachers by holding tea parties in their
respective classrooms. Teachers were warmly welcomed into classrooms that were beyond
recognition (students had decorated with balloons, ribbons and posters) and
more goodies were laid out. There were several homemade cakes.
A grand lunch was served for all staff outside, on the lawn. It
was a memorable day with students showering their teachers with love and
The day left a lifelong
impression in the hearts of all the teachers of DMSS with a grand lunch hosted
by His Majesty the Fifth King and Her Majesty the Gyeltsun at RBG Mess. It was
not the lunch that mattered but it was the love and affection showered by their
majesties mattered a lot. All the teachers were overwhelmed with their
Majesties’ free conversation with most of the teachers.
Every one of us will remember
this very day and will pray for their wellbeing, long life and benevolent

The Crowning Achievement of DMSS
“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” –
The statement by
Franklin D. Roosevelt
was true as DMSS was declared the winner by defeating 12 other schools in the
inter School Science Exhibition on 14th April,2012.The school was
also awarded with Nu 15000 as a cash prize. It brought immense joy and pleasure
to the family of DMSS. There were 13 schools who took part in the competition.
Four of them were Higher Secondary Schools and nine of them were Middle
Secondary Schools. Although the completion was quite tough yet our school was
able to beat them. Hence, they are qualified to compete in the regional level.
The teachers and students, who were responsible for this success was an epitome
for the school, as they explored the unexplored and made it a great achievement.
It was worth working even beyond the school hours and on holidays as it paid off
their hard work at the end. This had further uplifted the spirit and moral of
the teachers to perform better in the future.
The principal and the teachers expressed a word of thanks to the entire team for

His Majesty Visit to School
2th April, 2012 was a very
historic event for the DMSS family. The principal and the
staff of the school welcomed His Majesty, the Fifth Druk
Gyalpo with intense delight.
His Majesty spent some time with the children
in the assembly stressing on the importance of education. He
also granted an audience to the teachers where he reminded
on the issues concerning the behaviors of the youth
especially the students. He shared his concerns about the
growing problems in the country which involves the youth.
Hereafter, teachers should be more vigilant with every
trivial matter in the schools.
The teachers need to be strict with children
so that they don’t misbehave and disrespect the elders. The
children should be well equipped with values and morals and
by the same token be “Well Disciplined.” He also
recommended the school to have the autonomy to make
decisions when it comes to the disciplinary issues. The
king expects the students to excel in the academic
performances as well as “High
Expectations and Zero Tolerance” is what he emphasised.
Before his departure a photo session was
taken which made the day even more special and
