Seat Confirmation

We have given many reminders for current students planning to continue at Pelkhil School to pay their first installment to confirm their seats. A large number of students have still not done so. We would like to make this final reminder that fees must be paid if you plan to continue. The last deadline is 9th February.

After 9th February, the seat will be treated as vacated and offered to new applicants. After 9th February, all old students will be required to submit fresh applications and admission shall be considered purely on merit and seat availability. Please treat this as the final notice.

CE Students Confirmation

All Class XI CE students planning to continue at Pelkhil are asked to confirm their seats by 9th February. With just 1 section in each stream, we will not be able to retain the seats for those who have still not confirmed their seats.

Transfer Certificates

Students who have not been able to maintain academic standards are asked to collect their TCs from the school office.

The Prime Minister Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay launched the first iSchool initiative at Pelkhil School, Thimphu on March 29, 2014.

When the former Prime Minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra visited Bhutan in 2008, he marveled at how well-spoken the average Bhutanese was in the English language. He had good reason to be impressed because back in Thailand as we all know, the Thai language is all one hears.

As a result of the Thai PM’s visit, today Bhutanese teachers are being invited to teach English in Thailand, and talks are already underway of Thai students visiting Bhutan to immerse themselves in the English language. [Read more…]


Personal Responsibility, Parental Involvement and Success in School

The Importance of Student Responsibility

There is an extensive body of research showing that students who assume responsibility for their own learning are more motivated, more self-reliant and more effective learners. Unfortunately, we often brush these facts aside when we discuss strategies to improve education. In fact, the United States is one of the few countries in which teachers and school administrators are singled out when students fail to achieve. Many acknowledge the importance of parental involvement and personal responsibility and effort as prominent factors affecting a student’s success or failure in school. However, the nation largely ignores these factors in discussions about educational reform.

In our efforts to improve public education, we often turn first to the institution of public education itself and suggest all sorts of changes. Over the past few decades reform proposals have included some of the following: longer school days and school years; smaller class sizes; site-based decision-making; smaller schools; decentralization; mayoral takeover of large districts; leaner school and district bureaucracies; integrated instruction; tracking; charter schools; vouchers; increased accountability; magnet schools; alternative schools; standards-based education; higher standards; performance assessments; project based learning; direct instruction; better professional development for teachers; improved teacher preparation programs; alternative routes to certification; merit pay; student test based teacher evaluations; eliminating teacher tenure; creating new teacher evaluation systems; reforming teachers’ unions; test-based school accountability; closing “failing” schools; and having low-performing schools taken over by the state or by private companies.

In few if any of these approaches do we see a systematic effort to integrate parental or community support to assist [Read more…]
