Honouring our lopens

On May 2, schools and educational institutes throughout the country celebrated Teachers’ Day by paying special tribute to teachers for their contributions in building the nation. Our Teachers’ Day has a special significance because we also celebrate the contributions of His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo, the father of modern Bhutan, who gave special priority to modern education in the country.
