4th April  2014

Dear Parents,

I hope that all TBS families have a restful and enjoyable holiday and that the children and students come back refreshed and ready for Term 4.

There will be a lot happening in school over the holidays. An eco-friendly soil wall is being constructed as part of the improved foundation play area, base work will be done for both the new astroturf and improved play areas, base work will be done for the extra PE space (behind the secret garden), the roof of the hall (which is leaking) will be replaced, internal painting of the majority of classrooms will take place, the pond is being drained and cleaned and site-wide wi-fi should be installed. In addition preparatory work will be done for the improved Sixth Form premises and extra primary classrooms as well as improvements to the Library and the DT & Science classrooms. Over the next term and summer break there will be continued development to finish the play and astroturf areas, DT rooms, science rooms and improved storage facilities to clear classroom spaces for slightly more spacious teaching. It is an exciting time but a great deal of hard work will be done by the non-teaching staff whilst the rest of us are away, so thank you in advance to our teams of  ground, administrative and support staff. Read More

Dhading: The Past, Present and the Future

The 6dhadingth 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 and supporting it in 2012.

The project continues this year in 2013 and the school has already hosted a visit from Dhading teachers (Read more) and preparations are in place for our 6th formers to continue the legacy of their predecessors and further help the Dhading community. Read the Dhading blog to keep up with how the project evolves.

International Award

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.

Bronze Award

Latest Assessment

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

Silver Award

Latest Assessment

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.

Gold Award

Latest Assessment

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.
