February is exciting and special; we unite after a long break to celebrate our beloved Druk Gyalpo’s Birthday and the fruit of our hard work – the results 2015. March was special; we welcomed our new family members – freshmen 2016. April was extra special this year as UA family celebrated the 400th year of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel’s arrival to Bhutan and was blessed to be part of the history - the naming ceremony of our Gyalsay Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck in Punthang Dechen Phodrang Dzong. As always, May is the month that the Education Family looks forward to most as we celebrate national teachers’ day on 2ndMay every year coinciding with the birth anniversary of our beloved IIIrd Druk Gyalpo Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. Before we have even realized, June is over; June has always been one of the busiest months for us:
