Nepal school situation
Since the outbreak of epidemic in March 2020, the Shree Mangal Dvip School (SMD), which DENER has assisted for a long time in Nepal, has been closed, and many children were waiting at home for the opportunity to learn.
After a long wait of more than a year, finally at the end of November this year, 42 new children joined the school’s new boarding program. When new students come to school, they first undergo a week of isolation and complete a physical health check. The school arranged for the principal to meet with the parents and filled the enrollment information. The children also took a placement test, and then the class began.
Because these children never been to school, they need actual courses. Compared to other older students, who have already developed basic learning skills and have been doing online courses during the epidemic. In addition to these new students, there were also a group of children who had been unable to attend classes for more than a year because their homes are too remote to have internet equipment. Fortunately, the epidemic had slowed down, and they could gradually return to campus.
Walk into the gate of the school together
On December 11, senior students also returned to school one by one. Because they will soon be facing exams, the school wanted to help them review. The student would also be isolated for a week and expected to resume normal classes on the 19th. We were so relieved to hear this exciting news.
We hope the epidemic situation will become more and more stable. Under this situation, schools can be opened according to the grade level, allowing more children to return to school from their homes in the mountainous area.
