Kathmandu University High SchoolCultivating socially responsible & sensible citizens
Message from Academic Director
Dear KUHS Families,
It has been exciting to watch your children so enjoying being back in school again. They have settled into routines and have now had their first round of cycle tests in person after such a long time. Teachers are pleased with their progress although everyone needs to work hard to be up to standard for the year.
We have been blessed with a COVID free period since we came back in person. Thanks to Dhulikhel Hospital almost all our students 12 and over have been vaccinated as have most of our parents. Students and staff have been carefully and consistently wearing masks so that we have had a very healthy few months. With Omicron on the horizon, though, we are going to have to be vigilant both at home and at school.
Winter break is now here. Please, use this time tovisit new places with your children, read together, talk with your children about their interests and encourage them. This is a time to explore, to be outdoors, to be active. Please strictly limit the amount of time your children spend on the computer playing games or using social media.
Stay warm and healthy,
Barbara Butterworth, Academic Director

We are very much delighted to share this news with you. NepaliSat-1, also known as Bird NPL, was a Nepalese low orbit research satellite and the first satellite of Nepal. The satellite was launched from the Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’, Wallops Flight Facility, in the United States in 17 April,2019 AD. Two Nepali scientists, Dr.Aabhas Maskey and Hariram Shrestha who were then studying at Japanese Kyushu Institute of Technology, developed the satellite under the BIRDS project of their institute in collaboration with Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST).This satellite’s mission is completed. The satellite successfullytook pictures of various geographical locations in the country.
IN 2023 NepaliSat- 2 is scheduled to be launched and Kathmandu University High School (KUHS) are going to make the second Satellite. DrAabhas Makey is with us now for the project. The space lab has already been set up andthe instructors’ team has started their activities. Six students from Grade 11 of KUSH and 3 from neighboring schools (one each from Sanjiwani School, Dhulikhel, Ajad School, Banepa and Chaitanya School, Banepa) have joined the project. The first phase of training will be over by 31st of December 2021 and then second phase starts.
