23: Each class in Druk School goes for a field trip at least once in each academic year. The field trips are also awarded to the classes which has 100% class attendance and to the classes which excels in academic performance.
24: At the beginning of each academic year, the school hosts a lavish Awards day function to honor excellence in academic and non-academic performance of the students in the previous year. The main objective behind the delayed function is to motivate the children to start working hard to excel in their studies right from the beginning of the new academic year and to allow the award winners to take a place of respect. The beauty of this function is that the parents get the honor of presenting the certificates of merit to their own child.
25: Class teachers eat their lunch with their students inside the class room. Table napkin is imperative for each child to use while dining.

28: At least four teachers and school prefects are deployed on the parking lot of Druk School every morning. The purpose of the Teachers on Parking Duty is to ensure the safety of our children in the morning rush hour. Respective points are installed to drop their children and exit the parking lot. The Teachers on Parking Duty happily opens the door of the cars (for small children) and help our small Drukains come out and walk to their alma mater. With a smile on our faces we welcome the child for the day and silently assure the parents that their child will remain happy or will be happier at the end of the day when parents come to pick them up.
I once jokingly told to my colleagues that the beauty of the parking duty is that it allow my hands to get hold of the cars that I won’t even buy in my dreams!
