Dhading: The Past, Present and the Future
The 6th Form Dhading Project is a student-led project that facilitates change and development in the Dhading district (5 hours drive from KTM, on the way to PKR). The central focus of the project is to link learning to life and to allow students to lead the way in creating positive change within their community, while enhancing their own perception and understanding of the world.
The project has been a part of the 6th Form for 3 years now. In 2010, the students visited Dhading to perform a ‘needs assessment” in various schools, preparing the ground for the pilot project of 2011.
On the 7th Nov 2011, we headed off to Dhading for a week, keeping in mind that our primary aim was to facilitate development. Nervous but focused, we were split into 3 groups, each visiting a different school around Dhading Besi.
What is the International Award?
The International Award is the name under which The Duke of Edinburgh Award is provided in over 30 countries.
The British School Kathmandu is a registered provider of The International Award and offers pupils in year 10 and above, the opportunity to participate in this world respected Award programme.
The International Award encourages and celebrates the contributions of young people in developing their life skills and involvement in the wider community. There are three levels of Award (Bronze, Silver & Gold) each requiring greater time commitment and perseverance. The youngest age to start is 14 (for Bronze Award) and young people have until 25 to complete any of the Award levels. There are 4 sections at each level; Service, Physical Recreation, Skill and Adventurous Journey, which must be completed.
The start of February saw year 10 out on the Kathmandu Valley rim, completing their International Award Bronze Assessment. Starting from Kakani they trekked for 2 days along the Valley rim, with views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal for company. During the 2 day expedition participants were assessed on navigation, campcraft and cooking skills, as well as demonstrating teamwork and co-operation in completing the self supported trek.
All groups successfully completed the Assessment and got back proud, if not a little tired and sore, with their sights on completing the remaining sections to achieve the Bronze Award. Well done all

Students from Year 11 have just completed their Silver Assessment Journey for their International Award. They spent three days trekking from the Kathmandu Valley rim, back to Kathmandu along the lesser used southern route. As well as great weather and sunsets, the groups enjoyed open air cooking, talking to the locals and carrying out their project work. Congratulations to them all.

Twelve Year 13 students have taken part in their Gold International Award training expedition around the Kathmandu Valley rim. Their route took them from Nagarkot and Jhule towards Chisapani and then down to Sunderijal. They were fully self sufficient carrying all their own food, clothes and camping gear.
The students enjoyed getting to grips with pitching tents, cooking on gas stoves and the looks of the locals, not used to seeing trekkers carrying their own kit. Although the weather was mixed, with some heavy rain, the students coped well with the expedition and have all now a much better idea of what is required for the Assessed Expedition which comes up in next term.click here to see images
