The Sri Lohit High School and Sri Lohit Middle English School are on the same campus with a single school building.


The school was established in 1952 under the name Sri Lohit Middle English School with Headteacher Nandi Das. The founder Headteacher of the M.E. School section was Jogen Dutta.

Academic instruction[edit]

Subjects and medium[edit]

The medium of teaching is Assamese, but students can take classes in English also. The following subjects are there for the high and M.E. section.

Hindi, History, and Geography are Elective Subjects and students have to opt for any one of them.

Academic session[edit]

The academic session starts from January to December. After the completion of six months a 'Half Yearly Examination' is conducted. Then in the end of the year the Annual Examination is commenced. Every class teacher takes a 'Unit Test' on their subject throughout the year.

Summer classes[edit]

This is an initiative taken by the regional AASU committee to offer free coaching classes to the students during the summer vacation period. Students from other schools of the locality can join these summer classes.

Spiritual instruction[edit]

The classes start from 10:00am. Before that is Morning Prayer. The students get together in a line in the front field or veranda and offer their prayer. The teachers join them. Then they go to their classrooms.

Student life[edit]

The Union is the general body of the students of the school. The union functions in accordance with its constitution. Office bearers of the Union Executives are elected annually and they function under the guidance of a teacher-in-charge appointed by the Principal. One student in every class is appointed 'Class Captain' to look after the class in the absence of class teacher. The 10th standard students get exemption from taking part in the union due to their preparation for matriculation.


For boys, the uniform is navy blue trousers and sky blue shirts. For girls, in the M.E. section, it is navy blue skirts and sky blue tops and in the high section mekhela chador (mekhela being white and chador being white with navy blue edge). Students wear a school-badge.


Annual events celebrated by the school include Republic Day, Independence Day, Teachers' Day, Saraswati pooja, the eve of the summer vacation and other regional/national festivals.

During the annual sports week students play cricket, football, volleyball, kabaddi, running, relay race, shotput, javelin, discus, long jump, high jump, triple jump, Ludo, chess, carrom, musical chairs, skipping, debate, oratory, creative writing, poetry recitation, music and drama.

At the end of the week is prize-giving day. From every class, one student is awarded as the 'Best Student of the Year' depending on their academic/discipline/attendance performance.

The farewell of the 10th standard students is a special occasion. After being passed out in the test examination, which is so crucial being a qualifying exam to matriculation, the students get together in the school for the last time.
