Program Update - Herbal Garden Oct 13

Discussing Theoritical Knowledge with Students
Discussing Theoritical Knowledge with Students

With the promotion and publicity of Herbal Garden program being initiated from ECCA in different schools, we are now receiving lots of Expression of Interest from different schools towards developing Herbal Garden in their school periphery. Among the request received from different schools, we are being very selective towards the schools for the implementation of program. Selective in a sense that, the school where Herbal Garden program is implemented needs to replicate the idea and concept in other schools located in nearby periphery so that we do not require to reach all the schools for program implementation.

Shree Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School and Shree Majhgau Lower Secondary School of Mirge VDC, Dolkha District are two new schools where we have recently trained the students towards establishing Herbal Garden in their school. In this two day training program, 25 students involved from two schools were very much exited to develop Herbal Garden in their school, as this is a completely new concept and program for them.

“During this 2 day training program, I saw the feeling of harmony and sharing between students. And this is a very good sign of team work between students. I hope this program will increase the social bonding between the elder and smaller children, which we cannot teach the students through our course study. I thank ECCA and the trainers for implementing this program in our School” – Mr. Dhurba Pakhrin, Teacher, Shree Majhgau Lower Secondary School.

As the training program was organized in the school periphery of Majghau School, the students of Shree Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School were very much eager to implement their learning in their school periphery.

We express our deep gratitude towards your help and supporting us to bring change in our schools and the students through our programs. Without YOUR SUPPORT we would not have been able to bring the changes. Furthermore, we would like to request you to share the information of our project within your friends and families network in order to receive continuous support for funding the program in other schools. We would like to request you to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets regarding our programs and activities.

Looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our works.

Thanks & regards

Program Update – Learning Climate Change (Oct 13)

By Angel Chitrakar - Sr. Program Officer

 

“In our curriculum, Science subject provides theoretical knowledge to our students. We as a teacher for Science subject are challenged to provide an in-depth knowledge about the topics and contents to our students. As theoretical based education, the learning’s of students are limited to some extent. Hence, we are trying to facilitate students learning through integrating more and more experimental and practical activities which help them to understand and remember the topics and contents. This program supported us a lot to help students understand different topics of science as it required active involvement of students through hands-on activities for data collection on different environmental parameters like water, atmosphere and soil science. I personally found that the students are much more active than they were in previous days. They are much more curious to learn about environment as well as seek answers to various questions about different environmental problems and its consequences.” – Mr. Shyam Kumar Maharjan, Teacher, Harisidhi Secondary School

With the increasing population and human intervention in our local environment, there is no thought that our environment is changing. Hence, through this program, we aim to aware our students on different environmental issues and changes that are occurring in our surrounding through teaching them about various parameters of our environment like atmosphere, hydrology, soil science etc.

At the moment, we have initiated implementation of this program in 4 different schools. A training program for students and teachers of these four schools were organized at Harisidhi Higher Secondary School in the month of July. As all four schools selected were located in such a way that they are aligned nearby the river, study on different hydrological parameters was mainly focussed in this training program. Students seemed very much energetic while conducting experiment in hydrological parameters like testing Ph, Turbidity, Conductivity etc. After 6 months from the data collection date, a sharing workshop is planned among all the four schools. This will help the students to analyze the data and discuss the reasons behind the changes in data in particular parameters.

We would like to thank you for your support and believing & supporting us in our campaign. Because of YOU, we have been able to bring changes in the learning techniques and education of students. Furthermore, we would like to request you to share the information of our project within your friends and families network in order to receive continuous support for funding the program in other schools.

We hope for the same type of support in the days to come ahead. To get updates regularly regarding our activities, we would like to request you to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets. We are also looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our works as well.

Namaste and Seasonal Greetings from Nepal.

With the arrival of monsoon season, the entire students get a month long vacation from their school all across the nation. The frequent rainfall over this period does not favour for the smooth operation of school activities. Hence, during this period most of the students get themselves busy with helping their guardians in their field with rice plantation. Without an exception, the schools of Mirge were also closed during this period.

From August 4th, schools in Mirge resumed its operation after completing the monsoon vacation break. In order to motivate the nature club members to continue their activities in school, few additional training programs as well as monitoring visit was organized by ECCA Staff from 5th to 9th August.

On 5th and 6th August, the students from Majhgau School and Kalidhunga School were trained on developing herbal garden in school. A glimpses of herbal garden preparation in majhgau is presented here along with this report. The major objective of this program is to educate students regarding the traditional use of herbals as well as to create a research habit among students in various herbs available locally in their village. A total of 25 students from both the schools had actively participated in the training and are very exited to learn new things apart from their educational curriculum and committed to maintain the garden effectively to share knowledge and understandings.

On 6th August, a training program on Safe Drinking water for the students of two new schools, Kali Devi Lower Secondary School and Laligurans Bright Future English Boarding School were organized. A total of 55 students from both the schools had actively participated in the training program. They were trained on various water purification technologies that are locally available and could be easy to use.

On 7th and 8th August, facilitators along with Nature Club students organized orientation class from 4th grade to 10th grade in all four schools regarding the need of safe drinking water. This activity hope to create awareness among students towards the use of safe drinking water for healthy living.

Apart from these activities Nature club members are planning to organize their various regular activities in order to enhance the knowledge and skills of students.

We would like to thank you for your continuous support and believing and supporting us in our campaign. Because of YOU, we have been able to bring changes in the life of needy people in Nepal. We look forward towards the same type of support in the days to come ahead. Please like our Facebook page to get updates regarding our activities and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets.
