Zangkhar Primary School

Background

Zangkhar Primary School, one of the earliest institutes in the Kurtoe region, entered the 56th year of its journey in 2018. It was the vision of His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuk, the third Druk Gyalpo of Bhutan, which led to the creation of numerous institutions of learning across the kingdom. What started as a small public school in the 1960’s has today blossomed into one of the leading primary schools in Lhuntse Dzongkhag..

The school falls under Jarrey Gewog of Lhuentse Dzongkhag. It is just 45 minutes’ drive from Gorgan. The school is working collaboratively and meaningfully with the relevant stakeholders to excel in terms of every respect into the 21st century.

In this way, Zangkhar faculty could accomplish our school Vision, Mission, Goals and in general achieving “an educated and enlightened society of GNH and sustained on the unique Bhutanese values of Tha Dam Tshig Ley Gyu-Drey”.
