The Headmaster

It is a credit to the school and the selection process that there have only been three headmasters at the school in its 50 year history.  These headmasters have all shown great leadership and dedication to Khumjung School, and have ensured the ongoing improvement and expansion of the school to bring it through 50 years of education.  The current headmaster, Mahendra Bdr Kathet, has been at the school for 34 years and the headmaster since 1998.  He was a teacher of English and Nepali before his appointment as headmaster and still teaches English classes.  Mahendra has dedicated his teaching life to Khumjung School and he is passionate about the school and its future.  Under his guidance the school has sourced many new donors to help expand and modernise the school.  Mahendra brings a calm, quiet leadership to the school and he is well respected in the community for his hard work and commitment to the school.  Mahendra has a strong vision and spirit to develop Khumjung School into a competent school, well-equipped with modern facilities able to compete with reputed private English boarding schools in Nepal.
