With much appreciation I write to you all. I appreciate for you are undergoing training for construction management to become site supervisor. Bhutan needs better skilled and educated manpower in construction sector. Not many of us like blue collar jobs neither we want to grab an opportunity and work. With the mission to get trained with better attitude of manual works and overcome the hardship, it is in you that I have seen the vision blooming to serve for the better cause of nation.
Not many days back I used to come wearing smile and hope for the day in your class. The joy that comes through dedication and integrity of my instruction and the aspiration to make you all learn whatever I taught makes our period every day. I hope the same shall be continued with the new instructor in my absence.
Not many of you like my style of conducting test after coverage of every new topic. I have done enough research before I make the decision. Many graduated trainees don’t know the basics of what you are supposing to know when you are at site. With the mission to enhance teaching and learning the field and practical oriented subjects, and with the vision to institute the competitive model to measure the performance of trainees I have decided to conduct test after coverage of every new topic. I am pleased that my idea was well received.
|With student trainees|
I am happy with the hard work you all have put in to understand the technical content of the teaching within short duration. Moreover it is proven in the examination. I convey my deep message to keep it up the spirit.
One day the class abounded with laughter. It was when I read the funny answer. When the question clearly says to enlist the characteristics of good timber, how someone can confidently write a point, it gives good smile! Such simple spelling mistakes were common. Instead of smile it should be smell - vast difference between smile and smell. It was indeed a good lesson and learning for me and you. Again it was nice to see many of you don’t make such silly blunders in future tests and reports.
I was completely shocked to hear the news. It was breaking news for all of us, undeniably for the institute and nation as a whole. It was I who reminded you all to control drinking. One day I remember I cautioned few of you to be careful after drinking liquor. It was misfortunate for him and disgrace for all of us. When the law intervenes, we are same in front of law and he will be charged for involuntary manslaughter. For rest of you, I warn you to be extra careful henceforth.
Unfortunately I have to leave as I have been selected for RCSC. It is with sadness that I leave a role where we have worked with such fantastic and supportive team and trainees. I have really enjoyed the teaching and challenges in the job.
For your information, I have selected to work with Ministry of Work and Human Settlement and placed under Department of Road. Tomorrow I will get appointment letter and probably I will be joining office by 10th January after orientation programme.
I’d like to extend a huge thanks to you, the rest of the management team and trainees for all you have done for me over the last one month.
Please feel free to get in touch should you require information henceforth.
I wish all the trainees best of luck in every endeavor you take ahead. Hope to work with you all in future. Happy New Year and TASHI DELEK!!
