Dewathang Primary secondary School

Background of Dewathang Primary School

Dewathang Primary School was established in 1962 by the Royal Government of Bhutan. It is located below Jigme Namgyel Engineering College and is approximately 1.5 km away from the Samdrup Jongkhar-Trashigang highway, under Samdrup Jongkhar Thromde. It covers an area of 6 acres and 33 decimals under thram No. 180. The head who started the school was Mrs. Sonam Choden. It is connected with tarred road and internet facilities. It has a good infrastructural facility of 8 blocks in total, of which 2 blocks are two storied buildings. These are being used as classrooms. The two storied building is used as administrative block and library. Two single storied (old blocks) are also used as classrooms. Three other blocks are used as the book store, principal’s quarter and the caretaker’s quarter respectively. Toilet facilities for the students consist of two unit for boys and two units for girls. The sport facilities include football ground and basketball court. The school was started as a Primary School in 1962 and was upgraded to LSS in 2003 and then to MSS in 2005. As there was limited space for the expansion of the school for the large number of the students, the middle secondary school was being segregated into PS and MSS in 2008. MSS was then shifted to Garpawoong MSS in 2008. At present the school is headed by the principal Mr. Ugyen Penjor since July 2023.
