Joint School Maths Workshop
On the 27th May and 2nd June, we four teachers participated in a 2 days Maths Workshop conducted by St. Xavier’s School, Jawalakhel facilitated by the resource person Mr. Hukum Prasad Dahal. The Workshop was conducted in 2 sessions. The 1st one was a brief review on Professionalism, Effective Classroom Management, Learning Barriers of Children and Pedagogy followed by Mathematics Teaching , Teaching Learning Objective, Mathematics teaching Learning Stages, Teaching Learning activities, Project-based Learning, Action research via Diagnostic Evaluation and Modes of Evaluation. From this workshop we learned that mathematics could be taught through life skills rather than teaching rules. At the same time we learned activity-based classroom (solving mathematical problem through paper folding). In addition to this, new idea relating to lesson plan was introduced which was based on knowledge, understanding, life skill and higher ability. The workshop would have even been more fruitful if we could equally participate in the activities.

Excursion to Silkworm Farming Center
“Tell me I forget. Teach me and I will remember. Involve me and I learn.” Keeping this quote in mind, we the students of Grade X were taken to our first field visit this year. On 8th of May 2018, we were very excited to see the wonderful weather with the slow breeze which was ideal for our trip. At about 10 in the morning, after our lunch, we filled our bottles with water and climbed up the bus to begin our journey. We were greeted by the officials there and guided through the parts of silkworm and their life cycles. Later, we were given the ample opportunity to see silkworms coming out of their respective cocoons live. After that we got chance to enjoy Mulberry fruits. After spending time there, we were taken to local Panauti Museum, which we really found beautiful and informative. Finally, we returned back to school. I would like to thank all the teachers who accompanied us throughout our journey and all the respective bodies for making this journey possible on behalf of all students at Grade X

We were accompanied by three teachers: Rupak Khatri Sir, Neeva Shrestha Ma’am, and Sanam Shrestha Ma’am. We were fascinated by the variety of plants we saw as soon as we entered. Later on as we were moving, we also saw bee keeping, goat rearing and fish farming that was done there. There were fruit trees and medical plants as well. The students also bought plum which was organic. Our teachers bought plants for planting on world environment day as well. We would like to that our teachers and school for such opportunity.

On 5th June, 2018, (World Environment Day) we the students of Grade IX went to Dhaneshwor temple along with some teachers in order to clean the area of the cultural heritage there. We also made one model of earth regarding how it suffers because of plastic pollution. We moved from the school at 9:00 am and reached Dhaneshwor temple area after half an hour. We reached the main gate after walking for 10 minutes. When we were at the temple, we were introduced to the agenda of this year’s World Environment Day, which was “Beat the Plastic Pollution”. We cannot reuse plastic so we must refuse it. We used brooms, dust pan and jute sacks to clean. For us, it took around one and half hours to clean and other half an hours to return to school. Although, it rained in the morning we enjoyed cleaning. Actually, it was good that it rained because rain removes pollution from air. At last, not only in environment day we must always make our surrounding clean.

In the morning of this year’s World Environment Day, our school conducted an assembly to announce that each class would tdo particular jobs for celebrating the day. Our class VII needed to go to Gosaisthan in order to clean the cultural heritage site there. We reached there at 10:00 am by bus. We collected two sacks of garbage altogether when we went there. Narayan Dai dug a pit and we dumped all garbage in it. Then we went up a series of stairs and we saw a snake eating a frog which made us scared. Finally we collected almost 5 – 6 sacks of trash and filled it in 3 pits. Ravi Sir, Pabitra Ma’am, Purna Sir, Smita Ma’am, Sanam Ma’am and Narayan Dai went along with grade VII students. It was a very beautiful place but full of garbage, which we cleaned. It was difficult job, we all were very thirsty and at that time we realized the importance of water. Our school’s staff had already kept some of the containers for the trash. We returned to the school at 12:00 o’clock after the cleaning of the site.

“Cleanliness is Godliness”
On the day of June 5, there was World Environment Day celebration at our school. Our school had planned to send different classes to different places for the cleaning. Grade VIII had been to Bhagwati temple, Narayanthan and Lankhanamai temple in Dhulikel area. This environment Day’s theme was to “Beat the Plastic Pollution”. We couldn’t see many trashes so it made us easier to clean the places. Cleaning the place made us feel like our heart was also cleaned. We felt that, although we didn’t clean many places. Even if we cleaned only how much dirt was there in the sites, it made us feel content. We didn’t get to clean many places but we hope that we more opportunities like this in the days ahead, which will make us all feel sense of social responsibility. It was a day to remember, a day that made-change in our thinking, a day that made a change in the environment and a day to “Beat the Plastic Pollution”.
