Welcome to Melamchi-Ghyang Secondary School
Melamchi-Ghyang Secondary School is a public school located in the foothill of Langtang National Park, Nepal. It lies in Helambu VDC of Sindhupalchok district. Most of the people of this region are from the Hyolmo community. They are the Himalayan indigenous people of Nepal. The Hyolmo have poor living conditions; both remote and difficult to access, with little in the way of formal education system. To address this issue Melamchi Ghyang School was established in 1985. The school now has 250 students, 150 live in hostels attached to the school. Our catchment area is both broad and diverse. Some students come from Kathmandu for the education, which we offer. We employ 16 teachers; our classes range from Reception through to Year 11. Our students sit the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) at the end of Year 10.
