1st March: School re-opened after the long winter break, there are now 711 students.

All students in the 2012-13 top class (class 10) passed their public matriculation examination. Their average score was 70.3% and the highest 86.4% (fourth highest in the District). Congratulations to you all.

The construction season started again in March. The dining hall & kitchen extension and the final two classrooms are just some of the items on the 2014-15 construction schedule.

The Landscape Team are busy tree planting. Installing the drip irrigation system pump and sowing vegetables will be the next jobs  - see Garden section.

 We are aiming to finish construction of the secondary school buildings by the end of 2015 and need funds to do this.

Druk White Lotus aims to ‘walk-the-talk’ as a sustainable community, located in Ladakh’s high-altitude desert environment.  The planning and design of the campus and its buildings combine local knowledge and materials with “simple-smart” technology.  Design excellence has been recognised through various international awards, most recently the 2013 International Stone Architecture Award, awarded in Verona, Italy, for architectural quality and expressive use of stone materials. In 2012 the school was awarded The Emirates Glass LEAF Award for 'Best Sustainable Development' and received the ‘Test of Time: Environmental’ Award from the British Council for School Environments.
