Dear Parents, Guardians, Teachers, and Students,

Guided by our motto, “Be Your Best,” perseverance and consistency remain integral to UA’s culture. We are privileged to announce the completion of the international-sized astro turf in our main football stadium, a testament to the commitment of our Dasho Proprietor and FIFA. Additionally, our proprietor's forty million-ngultrum investment has facilitated the construction of a pavilion, additional hostels for UAFC, restrooms, and what is poised to be the largest STEM lab in the region.

Amidst our achievements, we acknowledge the tragic fire that devastated our library, ICT Lab III, and the Vice Principal's Office on November 14th, 2023. In response, we have erected a "Mani Dungkhor" (Prayer Wheel) and rebuilt a "Choekhang" (Prayer Hall), which will also serve as a Dzongkha Library. Constructed using mainly salvaged materials in a remarkable 24-day turnaround, this project embodies our resilience and spirit of renewal.

Once again, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our supportive parents/guardians, dedicated teachers, and disciplined students for their contributions to the successful conclusion of the 2023 academic session. As we embark on the journey ahead, we collectively aspire to make 2024 a year of prosperity, safety, and academic fulfillment.
