Brief History

Khoma is a place blessed with the visit of Guru Rimpoche in 8th century and it is also one of the tourist destinations under Lhuentse Dzongkhag for its traditional hand woven clothes popularly known as Kishuthara.

Khoma Lower Secondary School is located in Khoma gewog, 12 km away from the Dzongkhag headquarter at Lhuentse. It is centrally located in the gewog at Khoma village and caters services to almost all the gewogs under Lhuentse Dzongkhag besides five chiwogs within the gewog.

The school was initially established as an extended classroom on 19th March 1991 at  Bramidhung in one three storied farm house; about 30 minutes away from present school location. It was later shifted to the present location and it was a community school from 1992 – 1997. It was a primary school from 1998 – 2000 and then upgraded to Lower Secondary School in 2001. The school had boarding facilities from its initial stage with the support from the SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAMME and it is still continued. The school is connected with road and electricity and has health facility (BHU) adjacent to the school compound. It also has good telecommunication connectivity (BMobile & TCell). As per school’s thram No. 165, the school has an area of 12.54 acres from which students cultivate varieties of vegetables in about 1 acre of school’s land as a part of School Agriculture Programme.
