50 years ago the Sherpa people of the Khumbu valley took the choice to be educated and it was with great enthusiasm that those first ever pupils of Khumjung School embraced learning. The children at Khumjung School today show the same enthusiasm and passion for learning that their predecessors did, the same commitment to education, the same desire to learn. They make full use of the facilities, and now pupils from many different areas of the Khumbu valley are able to make use of the hostel facilities and therefore receive their education in Khumjung.
The day at Khumjung always begins at 9.30am with full school assembly and exercises, to encourage pupils to be active but also to be wide awake and ready for lessons. It is also an excellent way of gathering the whole school together to participate in a group activity and greet their teachers.
