History of the school

Ney Primary School was established in 1991. Ney literally means a holy place. The people of Ney consider this place a door to the secret land of Khenpajong, which was once blessed by Guru Rimpoche. It is a two days walk from the village.

The school is situated in the north of Lhuentse Dzong in the midst of towering snow-capped mountains, some of which remains glistening even throughout summer. The school is accessible by farm road extending approximately over 28 kilometres from the Dzongkhag Headquarter.

The school was first started by a lone teacher in-charge, Mr. K. Dhan Sharma with 49 students in class PP. The school was then known as Ney Extended Classroom. The second head was Mr. R.B Sharma who joined the school in 1995 and stayed till 2001, making him the longest serving head master. He was relieved by Mr. Sangay Dorji who served from 2002 to 2004. The additional three units’ classroom and present principal’s quarter was built during his time. The school also received mid-day WFP meal in 2003.

Today, the school has classes from PP to VI with only a handful of students, the cause of which may be attributed to the village population migrating to other places looking for greener pastures. The total number of households in Ney increased to over 100 with His Majesty’s re-settlement programme in 2013.
