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.
