As mentioned in my yesterday’s article, I’ll provide you some additional information about the Kalyan English Secondary boarding school, situated in Lalitpur, Nepal.
Not all parents can afford this education + the extra cost of the school uniform and books. Actually some of the poor students are sponsored by people from different organizations, included Belgian benefactors. Most of the students are from local area. Some of them come from Patan or Kathmandu city.
There’re 4 exams in a year called the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and final terms. Mainly all students have summer vacation for 2 weeks, Dashain vacation for 10 days, Dipawali vacation for another 6 days, a 2-weeks taking winter vacation and some public holidays. The new school year starts from April 17th every year. Every year the students of the 10th class have to appear for the board of school leaving examination which is running under the Nepalese board. Until now all students leaving Kalyan Secondary School have succeeded in these tests. These students can go to 11th class in another place. In the near future the school management wants to add class 11 and class 12 to his facilitations. That’s why extension works are going on at the moment. An additional floor is under construction and should produce more classrooms.
The school has a club of former students and they come to school for different programs after invitation by the school staff. Several times a year different meetings are organized to inform the student’s parents about the yearly calendar, the school budget and about the policy of quality education. After each term of the examination, the parents are invited to come to collect the report cards of their son(s) and/or daughter(s). Once a year the school organizes a special parent’s program with dances, music, exhibitions, arts and crafts. This yearly program is attended by the District education officer and other VIP’s from the Nepalese Ministry of education.
Kalyan English Secondary Boarding School is located Dhapakhel – 9, Lalitpur, NEPAL and has a private Post Office box to receive letters from benefactors and sponsors from over the world. If you want to make a financial or material donation to the school, if you want to help the poor children by paying their monthly tutorial fee, or if you want to work in the school as a volunteer, you can take contact with the Director of this school by letter addressed to Mr. Shyam Karki, PO Box 20087 – Kathmandu, Nepal or by email to email@example.com.
