Historical background of Barshong Primary School
Barshong Primary School,which is an hour and half drive from the Dzongkhag, lies in the middle of Barshong Gewog.It was established in the 90s’ but had to shut down due to the southern problem. However it was reestablished in 2007 with only one teacher, who also was the Principal,Mr.Tashi Wangchen.
The School caters to all the children of the five chiwogs Barshong Toed,Barshong Maed,Gangtokha,Chuneykhang and Toisang.With the recent establishment of Central schools the students of Toisang chiwog were accommodated in Mendrelgang CS because of the tedious walking distance children had to endure daily.
The School has an area of 3.13 acres, in the year 2017 a mini football ground was created with aid from Dzongkhag.Only around 15 decimals of the total area is arable. The School joined the School Agriculture Programme (SAP) in 2018.In the year 2014 the old school infrastructure which was in a dilapidated state was dismantled and shifted to the newly constructed infrastructure.
The school faces the challenge of yearly decreasing enrollment in class PP.Currently (2018) there are only nine children admitted in class PP under the age of five and half years.
