    Dear Readers, 

    Located in between and on the feet of snow capped peaks and amazingly vast and void planes of the valley at an altitude of 12500 ft, the Spiti Children Home School Munsel-Ling s a wonderful abode for the young minds of Spiti and adjoining parts of District Kinnaur, to mend their mind, body and soul so to face the growing competition of the globalised world.

    Being the academic head of this school, I too take it a wonderful opportunity as well as a challenge to work for the need of his region and prepare a valuable human resource for the growth of my county. 

    Survival at high altitudes not an easy thing for one has to outer many physical problems. Yet, the seclusion at this place gives a wonderful spiritual feelings and the strength to counter the difficulties at this lovely Buddhist dominated low densely populated snow desert. 

    It is incredible on the part of the school society and management to provide such huge in facture to the strength of more than five hundred students at this remote area that has been in scarcity for many things and were deprived of quality education in the past and now being prepared in modern education line that too in an English speaking environment quiet contrary to the fact that the children of the area are otherwise familiar with their mother tongue only. 

    The vision of the founder is to prepare the students to live up to their potential and create their own identity with versatility among the leaders working at different places and organizations. It is to everyone’s pleasure to know that since the existence of this school in 1996, the school alumni are now positioned as Doctors, Engineers, Academicians, Administrators and Military Officer and many are serving as subordinators in different government and multinational organization. 

    I, along with my competitive team make it our mission and commission to live up to the vision and expectations of the school and the parents and take this pledge to spare no effect to make educational experience of our student meaningful and relevant to the socio-economic needs of the time and enrich our students meaningful and relevant to the socio-economic needs of the time and enrich our youth to face the challenges of the future for leading their region from the front. And here one thing that always remains in my mind in the words of H.H Dalai Lama, “When we education the minds of our youth we must not forget to educate their hearts. “ 

    With best wishes to all.
