"Our nation's vision can only be fulfilled if the scope of our dreams and aspirations are matched by the reality of our commitment to nurturing our future citizens."- His Majesty The King

The King His Majesty The King has always acknowledged and attributed our country's remarkable journey of modernization and development within a short period to our education system. It is also with the same conviction on the importance of education that His Majesty has established the Royal Academy in Paro as a model school to foster a new approach to holistic education in keeping with changing times and demands of the 21st century. The Royal Academy aspires to be a centre for excellence, one where education is a dialectical process that enables collaboration among teachers, learners, teacher educators and research. It adopts a unique approach towards teaching and learning that are beyond the normal confines of classrooms and textbooks.

Clear and profound visions for reforms in the Bhutanese education system have been spelt through the Royal Decree issued on 113th National Day to ensure that our national hopes and aspirations are reflected in the classrooms of our future generations. As the education fraternity in the country gears towards this noble task of revolutionizing our education system, the RIGSS Podcast is happy to bring out this special episode on the Royal Academy in Paro as humble tribute to commemorate the 41st Birth Anniversary of His Majesty The King.
