A short video to discover the students’ daily life at the LMHS in Pipiting (Zanskar).
The Lamdon Model High School (LMHS)
Lamdon Model High School is located in the Padum plain (Zanskar), near the village of Pipting, at an altitude of 3600 m
Every year it welcomes about 300 pupils (almost 50% of them girls) divided into 12 classes: two years of nursery school, followed by classes I to X (primary and secondary schools)
The school year starts beginning of March and ends in mid-December, given the harsh weather conditions and freezing winters
Although it is a private school, the LMHS is subject to the same obligations as all schools in the Indian Union: programmes, controls, examinations, authorisations to open new classes, etc.). The school is periodically inspected by the school authorities of Kargil District and the Ministry of the Ladakh Union Territory.
