As a practice of the school culture annually, one of the biggest events of the school was successfully concluded on 23rd of the March. Unlike past years, this time the annual school rimdro conducted was so called ‘Sherning  Dradhok’ and Migkha’ in spiritual terms.

The very fervent annual ritual conducted in the beginning of the year was aimed to commemorate His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singy Wangchuck’s 60th Birth Anniversary and paying prayers for His long life and good health. It was also aimed to ward off evil spirits, misfortunes, to cleanse and purify everyone’s life and to bring forth shower of blessing and success throughout the year. We do believe in bringing peace co-existing and serene atmospheric society.

The day begins with sacred ritual ‘Lhapsang’ at 6:30 in the morning followed by serving of “Thukpa’ the porridge, the traditional way of starting a day. The real ritual started at 7 a.m. Thereafter, in queue the events flow sequentially with serving of tea and breakfast, refreshment and biscuits, then lunch and on…

On the day, not only the school family revered and paid homage, but also nearby community people actively took part in it, prostrated and offered ‘Nyendar,’ praying and making individual wishes. It was truly a grand successful event which ended without any unusual occurrence, except a big smile on every individual face and even the dogs around the campus slept satiated, immovable at dusk.

This time, the monks engaged for the ritual recitation were invited from the village community, ‘Goling.’  Unlike past years the schools use to invite from the dzongkhag Dratshang Lama Nyeten and his entourage.  It was not oblivious that such change and invitation was a very welcoming note for them. The ‘Gomchens’ were heartily pleased for such avenue and getting to know each other and build relationship.

The school as well is pleased and henceforth would look for the same in the coming years.
