Thimyul Lower Secondary School

Brief History of the school

This school is located in Lhuentse Dzongkhag, under Gangzor Gewog, on a slope which is just about 10 minutes walk from Nongma chortens, the road point which heads to Dungkar, (a historical place where Dungkar Chhojay was established and was a residential place of the great grand father of our present king). The site where the school is located was previously used as a farmland by the people of this locality. The land was later donated for the construction of the new community primary school by the people in 1998. The construction work started from 1999 and was completed in 2000. The actual name of this place is called Langabee (five oxen headed with the snake body). The name was later on changed to Thimyul, meaning the sunken village. According to one version of the story, the community of this area believes that this valley sank down due to heavy flood. Another version of the story tells that a group of people from Trashigang came for Ney (the pilgrimages) and they failed to return to their home town due to the exhaustion of their ration. So they had no option then to settle down in this valley, which the then they named as Thimyul, meaning the settled down village. This can be the true story with the evidences that the community of this valley speaks Sharchokpa language, instead of Kurtoep and this is the only community who speaks sharchop in Lhuentse Dzongkhag.
The school was started with 112 day scholar students in 19th June, 2000 in three semi-permanent buildings and one teacher’s quarter, under the head teacher Mr. Karma Phuntsho with other two teachers. The other additional temporary sheds were built by the community. The school serves for two tshogpas i.e.; Nimshong, Magar and Somshing.
In 2003, the head teacher Phurba Namgyal took over the charge of the school with 170 students and three teachers. The school at that time was equipped least with the infrastructure. There was only volley ball court. In 2004, the school received WFP feeding for day scholars. Moreover, the school was recognized as the centre of cluster school and received Resource Centre facilities from the Education. And then the community constructed temporary kitchen, the WFP store and the dining hall, but RC building was constructed permanently with the help of budget funded by World Bank.
Due to the out growing number of children and the various problem encountered by the community to send their children to the far away boarding schools after completion of class VI, the Gup, Chimi and the teachers felt the needof up grading the school from community primary school to lower secondary school. In 2006 they forwarded the proposal to the Ministry of Education through Dzongkhag Education officer for up grading the school. The proposal was approved by the secretary of education Dr. Pema Thinley. At prompt, the community took initiatives to construct the temporary shelter for the teachers and the classrooms in the winter of 2006. By the spring 2007, the community finished constructing one temporary teacher’s quarter and two classrooms. In 2008, the Principal Pema Kelden took over the charge of the school with 260 students and 13 teaching staff, one librarian, one office assistant, one laboratory in-charge and three cooks. The school at that time was equipped least with the infrastructure. There was only volley ball court. From the academic year 2011 Mr. Rinchen Wangdi took over as the new Principal. At present, the school has 267 students ranging from class PP to VIII. At present the school has 16 teaching staff (13 gents & 3 ladies), one IT Lab Asstt, One Store In charge, one library Asstt, two office assistant, one laboratory Asstt, one SSI, school care-taker, sweeper and two cooks. We had the eleventh batch of LSSCE (class VIII) graduating in 2018. The school is now accessible to Administration block, computer facilities, the library, science laboratory, Multipurpose Hall, Football ground, basketball court, concrete WFP cum Store (constructed in 2014 under the support from WFP) and assembly ground.
