Joint School Slam Poetry Workshop
Slam poetry refers to spoken form of poetry. KUHS had organized Joint School Slam Poetry Workshop where students from St. Xavier’s, St. Mary’s, NDDS, Rosebud and KUHS had gathered to learn slam poetry. Two members of word warriors taught us about writing and performing poetry. The things that we got to learn there isn’t just limited to poetry but also in various other parts of our life. A day away from thick textbooks and long lectures, it was an awesome experience to learn a lot about poetry. Sitting among a bunch of completely unknown people and interacting with them was a bit of fun challenge seeing people write about the same topic so differently made me love literature even more. Joint school programs are helpful for the smooth and friendly communication between schools. I would like to thank KUHS for organizing academically productive programs and also hope for more programs like this. I feel very glad to be a part of this program.
Dilasha Upadhyay, 11 ‘B’
On the 11th of September, Kathmandu University High School celebrated Teej, one of the greatest festivals of the country in the school premises. The celebration began with the morning hustle and bustle of arranging the tent and carpets in the courtyard. Teachers seemed busy arranging the sound system and music tracks. Right at the morning hours, the music began with the famous traditional songs of Teej. All the teachers and students made place for themselves in the courtyard. Students of the primary wing started the programme by the group dances in the Teej songs. The atmosphere around was so joyful with the amazing dances of the children. After few minutes, teachers and non-teaching staff joined in to give company to the students.
Before the hype of the celebrations could go down, the celebration became more wonderful with the presence of Ms. Sharmila Shrestha, an energetic and popular singer from Nepalese Folk Songs. She made her presence felt everywhere in the musical atmosphere by singing her popular songs and made us all dance to the fullest. We had an amazing traditional and cultural exchange programme with full participation of students and staff for almost three hours. We would like to thank the school for organizing such programme. It definitely helped in understanding the importance of our culture and traditions.
