Counting Every Leaf: Mirge School Update
As the September slowly settles down and the weather gets chillier, the leaves turn a lively color before its farewell. As an old Nepali saying goes, you are conscious of the days passing and the leaves turning green to brown, but don’t realize the passing of each year. As each leaves turn its color, we count the developments and progress that have been felt in the schools and students in Mirge, Dolakha.
Since the inception of this project, it is safe to say that many lives have been changed in the member students of the nature clubs. Their involvement in the nature club have engaged them in different programs and introduced them to ideas that have brought positive changes in them. One very good example can be their involvement in the 3rd National Children’s Club Conference organized by ECCA in April. Many students had left the program with new experience that was educational and gave them a motive to initiate something new and pass the knowledge they have to their compatriots.
As ECCA believes that students should always keep in touch with their talents and learning abilities, it is planning to host a friendly competition among four schools. The competition will seek the best proposal regarding new and innovative nature club activities that can be conducted by the students. The best of the four will be rewarded cash prize to make their proposal into reality. The four schools are: Majh Gaun Lower Secondary School, Kali Devi Lower Secondary School, Kali Dhunga Higher Secondary School and Laliguras Bright Future English Boarding School in Mirge.
As students in the nature clubs of the participating schools have previous experiences of being in a proposal competition, ECCA hopes that the winning nature club will have the most efficient ideas brought on the table. With students who are active in the nature club interested in seeing the best for their school, we can hope for no less!
