History of School

Historical Background

“Collaborating with the social service and education enthusiasts of Siddhalek Rural Municipality, Ward No. 3 (formerly known as Ward No. 2 and 3 of Salang VDC), Padheri, Bajhbari, Chalise, Ratamate, Tin Khande, and Tarebir, a school building was established in Ward No. 3 in the year 2038 BS, after raising funds through Deusi-Bhailo program during the festival of Tihar. The school was run by hiring local teachers.

In the year 2039 BS, all the communities came together and started contributing monthly, ranging from 50 paisa to 100 rupees, to support the regular operation of the school. The school was operating smoothly until the establishment of Amar Adarsha Primary School by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and GIZ (German Society for International Cooperation) in the year 2040 BS. After that, the student enrollment decreased, and the school had to shut down due to the lack of a conducive learning environment.

Education is a fundamental right of every human being. Education cannot keep up with modern life without upgrading itself. Upgrading the school due to the high demand for education, the school was upgraded, and a primary level teacher was appointed in the year 2045 BS. Subsequently, more classes were added, and now the school provides education up to class 5 and is continually upgrading to provide education up to class 8.”

There was a problem in managing the students’ numbers and arranging the classrooms in a school located in Salang VDC, wards 1, 2, and 3, in the Dumdidaun area, which dates back to the year 2058 BS. To solve this problem, the youth of Salang VDC, in coordination with their parents, built a six-room building in Dumdidaun by collecting funds. The required wood for the construction was collected from Budhigandaki. The entire community, including mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, brothers, and sisters of wards 1, 2, and 3, who supported in this construction work, expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the school family. The building was completed in the month of Bhadra in 2059 BS, and with the unanimous decision of all the parents, the school was relocated from Padheri to Dumdidaun.
“After the transfer of the school, all the parents and students became aware of the lack of facilities between the parent and student groups. As a result, this school was upgraded to operate up to the tenth grade from the secondary level since 2065 B.S. It was a challenging task for this school to conduct the grade 10 board examination since 2065 B.S., and it was successful in achieving good results. After the fourth year, when the school’s results did not improve, the subject teachers were given a challenge, and due to their hard work and dedication, the school was successful in achieving good results. A total of 18 students participated in the examination, of which 3 passed in the first division, and 12 passed in the second division, achieving an overall pass percentage of 83.33%. In 2071 B.S., 15 students appeared in the board examination from this school, of which 3 passed in the first division and 11 passed in the second division. After that, this school has been able to maintain a good position.”

All parents, teachers, and staff members of this school have contributed actively and appropriately in every program organized by the school, to ensure that the light of education never dims for their children. The school takes pride in the support and enthusiasm of the parents, teachers, and education enthusiasts, who feel a sense of honor in being part of the school family.

In 2072 BS, due to the earthquake, the school faced difficulties in carrying out educational activities as the school infrastructure was damaged. However, the school administration worked in collaboration with the district coordination unit of Dhading to reconstruct the damaged buildings through the earthquake reconstruction program. As a result, the school has now expanded to 2 floors of the Trust building and 4 floors of the R.S.S. building. The number of classrooms has decreased, but the construction work of the R.S.S. building has been progressing rapidly.

According to the five-year plan, the operation of grade 12 was initiated in this school in the year 2076 B.S. after receiving permission from the rural municipality. Since it was necessary to operate grade 11 as well, permission was granted by the village council according to the decision made on 2076.02.01. Additionally, due to the lack of classrooms, four R.C.C. buildings were made available from the District Coordination Unit for implementation. A total of 18 classrooms were constructed in this school from Dading, and under the President’s educational reform program, a total of 20 new classrooms were constructed, including two classrooms for computer labs, science labs, and under the President’s educational reform program.

In order to create a conducive environment for the school and provide information and communication technology, programs such as computer labs, science labs, and President’s Educational Reform Program were initiated in this school.
