SMD Offers Grades 11 & 12
Since its beginning, Shree Mangal Dvip School has offered a government approved K-10 education. As with all such schools, students wishing to pursue further education have needed to attend a different institution for grades 11 and 12 (often referred to as Plus 2 or College) before attending university. It has been a long-time dream to offer grades 11 and 12 at SMD and recently, government approval was given, courses planned, teachers hired and now, the first classes for grade 11 have just begun. Next year - 12!
Celebration for the 2023 Graduating Class
On August 15, SMD held a program to inaugurate and welcome Class 11 students and to celebrate the 40 members of the 2023 graduating class. Choje Lama, several Khenpos and the Chairman of Boudha, Bhuwan Lama, were in attendance and gave each graduate a framed photo of Thrangu Rinpoche along with their diploma. Lama Karma Sangpo (SMD Principal) has expressed admiration and pride in the students and feels that in addition to achieving excellent exam results, they have demonstrated unwavering dedication, hard work and perseverance (5 students excelled with an A+, 18 students with an A grade, 15 students received a B+, and 2 students attained a B). Congratulations and best wishes to all!
Here are some pictures from the event:
