With the unfurl of the national flag, the sacred song of scouts filled the air trailed with the song of reverence  ‘Zhab-toen’  in honour of His Majesty and his successful reign for the welfare of the people. 

The principal seized the opportunity to offer his prayers and to share about the significance of the day that calumniated in some- way in the commemoration of these three significant occasions- the dawn of the parliamentary democratic system of government, the hundred years of monarchy and the celebration of hundred years of modern education in Bhutan.  

The students and teachers took the occasion to offer their prayers and wishes for the perpetual reign of their People’s king.

“It is a great opportunity for me to make my prayers for his majesty’s long life and his successful rule of the nation”, said Yeshi Wangchuk

The programme concluded with a ‘Tashi -labaey’; wishing for the successful end of the year and prayer s to embark on to a prosperous future.
