Not only the Kalyan students of grade 4, 5 and 6 went on an educational trip on December 8th, but also the students from the classes 7, 8 and 9 went to broaden their horizons on the same day.
These students left for a one day trip with destinations such as the Kailashnath Mahadev statue and Bhaktapur Durbar square.
All students were accompanied by their principal Mr. Shyam Karki sir and their teachers Mr. Narendra Tamang sir, Mr. Bishow Rijal sir, Mrs. Bhoomica Thapa mam and Ms. Sara Shrestha mam.
Kailashnath Mahadev Statue is the world’s tallest Shiva statue. It is situated in Sanga at the border of Bhaktapur and Kavrepalanchwok district in Nepal, which is about 20 km from Kathmandu.
The statue is 44 m high and made using copper, zinc, concrete and steel. According to the List of statues by height, Kailashnath Mahadev is the world’s fortieth-tallest statue, four places below the Statue of Liberty. The construction of the statue began in 2004 and was completed in 2011.
Bhaktapur literally translates to Place of devotees is also known as Bhadgaon or Khwopa. it is an ancient Newar city in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, about 13 km from the capital city, Kathmandu. It is located in Bhaktapur District in the Bagmati Zone.
Bhaktapur was the largest of the three former Newar kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, and was the capital of Nepal during the great ‘Malla Kingdom’ until the second half of the 15th century. Today it is the third largest city in the Kathmandu Valley, with a population of more than 80.000, of which the vast majority are still Newars. Historically more isolated than the other two kingdoms, Kathmandu and Patan, Bhaktapur has a distinctly different form of Nepal Bhasa language.
Bhaktapur has the best preserved palace courtyards and old city center in Nepal, and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal and stone artworks.
Nyatapola Temple is a 5-story pagoda located in Bhaktapur. The temple was erected by Nepali King Bhupatindra Malla during a 5-month period from late 1701 into 1702. It is the temple of Siddha Laxmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity.
The National Art Gallery which occupies a part of the Bhaktapur Palace was established by the Government of Nepal, Department of Archaeology in 1960. This museum was founded to preserve and showcase traditional paintings of Nepal. The collection may not be very large but includes invaluable paubhas (Nepali religious scroll paintings) and manuscripts that date back centuries and also houses centuries old sculptures.
The museum exists out of a Stone Art section which is on the ground floor and a Painting Section which is located at the first floor.
This educational trip organized by KALYAN school was once again very successful.
A very special thank you goes to the teacher Ms. Sara Shrestha mam, for the use of her pictures.
The management, teachers and students from the Kalyan English Secondary Boarding School and the committee of the ‘Circle of friends from the Kalyan School’ wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2017.
On December 8th, all Kalyan School students from class 4, 5 and 6 left together with their teachers for a 1-day educational trip.
First destination was the National Museum of Nepal.
The National Museum of Nepal is a popular attraction in the capital city of Kathmandu. About a century old, the museum stands as a historical symbol for Nepal. Being the largest museum of the country, it plays an important role in nationwide archaeological works and development of museums.
For the residents of Kathmandu, the monument serves to relive the battles fought on the grounds of Nepal. The main attractions are the collection of historical artworks (sculpture and paintings) and a historical display of weapons used in the wars in the 18-19th century. The museum has separate galleries dedicated to statues, paintings, murals, coins and weapons.
The National Museum of Nepal is in the city of Kathmandu at a short distance from the Swayambunath stupa.
So the 2nd stop was held at this majestic stupa.
Swayambhunath is an ancient religious architecture at the top a hill in the Kathmandu Valley, west of Kathmandu city. Swayambhu occupies a central position, it is probably the most sacred among Buddhist pilgrimage sites. For Tibetans and followers of Tibetan Buddhism, it is the second most important place after Boudhanath.
The Swayambhu complex consists of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples. A Tibetan monastery, museum and library are more recent additions. The stupa has Buddha’s eyes and eyebrows painted on. Between them, the number one is painted in the fashion of a nose. The site has two access points: a long stairway with 365 steps, leading directly to the main platform of the temple, which is from the top of the hill to the east; and a car road around the hill from the south leading to the southwest entrance.
All students really enjoyed this daytrip and learned a lot about the ancient Nepalese art and architecture.
A special thanks goes to the teacher Mr. Shankar Khadka sir, for the use of his pictures.
On the 11th of September 2076, the NNTA (Nepal National Teachers Association) organized a quiz competition for primary level students from Class 1 to Class 5.
All Government and Private Schools from the areas Dhapakhel, Sunakothi and Thecho were invited to participate.
The Kalyan English secondary School was represented by some students from Class 5 and won the first prize. The school received the first prize shield, while the students obtained medals and certificates of honor.
The topics of the quiz were history, culture, religion, science, mathematics, current affairs, sports, etc.
Afterwards, the principal and teachers of the Kalyan School have honored the winning team at the school in the presence of all students.
On behalf of all sponsors and well-wishers of the Kalyan School, we want to congratulate the management, all teachers and students with achieving this victory. Once again a proof the Kalyan School is providing High Quality education.
The School Leaving Certificate (shortly known as SLC and known in Nepali as prabeshika parikshha) is a nationally administered and monitored high-school-matriculation examination in Nepal.
Students obtain this qualification after completing a 10-year long secondary schooling system and participating in and passing a series of final board exams. The SLC exam, also known as iron-gate due to its importance and difficulty, is indeed regarded as one of the most important and most difficult examinations in Nepal. The examination is conducted by the Office of the Controller of Examinations, a government agency of Nepal government’s Ministry of Education. As of 2016, the Government of Nepal scrapped the traditional grading system of pass-fail and different divisions, and has taken an initiative to introduce a new grading system that ranks students from A to D, without a failing grade. The SLC is also famous for its high profile board toppers and notorious due to several incidences of suicides committed by unsuccessful students in the aftermath of each year’s result publication.
Under the letter grading system, students scoring between 90 to 100 percent were given ‘A+’, 80 to 89 percent ‘A’, 60 – 79 percent ‘B’, 40 – 59 percent ‘C’, 25 – 39 percent ‘D’ and those scoring below 24 percent marks were given ‘E’.
We’re very proud to announce you that all 35 Kalyan School 10th class students from the batch 2015 – 2016 obtained excellent marks in the national SLC examination. 4 of our students obtained an A+, which refers to a score in between 90 and 100%. The scores of the other ones were in between A to B.
A heartfelt congratulations to all the 35 students and their dedicated teachers who accompanied them during the preparation of these SLC exam.
On the 21st of June, one day after the results were published all over Nepal, all Kalyan School students from 10th class were invited to the school for a felicitation program.
23 students appeared to receive a khata and tika as a symbol of appreciation, respect and honor.
Hindus use the Tika ceremony, as a mark of honor or welcome to guests. The white Khata or shawl is hung around the neck as a symbol of celebration and honoring.
This year’s 10th class batch ‘2016 – 2017’ will be the last one to be executing the SLC examination finishing their grade. As per next school year 2017 – 2018, the SLC examination will be held after 12th class, which will be similar towards the Western school education system.
In a world where consumerism and materialism are increasing, the celebration of World Environment Day is a time to reflect on whether our collective behavior needs to be modified to address challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss. This day should be used to remind us that there is only one living world, but that our demands are unlimited. It can be safely said that targeting positive impacts based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 will help preserve the environment and lead to a safer world for all.
World Environment Day is observed every year on June 5th to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth. It is run by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). “World Environment day (WED) is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.”
Community Radio Stations (CRS) in the Nepalese Republic launched the Campaign. National TV & Radio programs featured environmental slogans and news. The Nepalese Government launched various programs in collaboration with UNESCO.
In the Nepalese Republic it is compulsory for all the Students from Grade 1 to A level to attend the afforestation programmes in their respective locality with the supervision of the Nepal Government.
The Theme for 2016 is ” Go Wild for Life ” (ZERO TOLERANCE FOR THE ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE). Angola is the host country of this year.
Also the Kalyan School students of class 8 and 9 participated at this WED. Students and teachers were collecting garbage in the immediate surroundings of the school. They collected 10 sacks of rubbish. With this action, the management of the school wants to sensitize the students that throwing waste and garbage on the streets and in the surroundings of the school is not done and bad for the environment.
As the new school academic session begins in Nepal, dealers of school buses have started introducing schemes and promotional campaigns, besides launching new models.
Tata, Eicher, Swaraj Mazda, Mahindra and Ashok Leyland are some of the brands that sell school buses in the domestic Nepalese market.
Also the Kalyan School bought a brand new school bus, to replace the older one, whose engine was still running but whose body work had been affected by time.
So Kalyan school is now the proud owner of a brand new Tata Marcopolo Starbus 40 seater school bus.
Safety is also a concern of the parents, so Tata launched a vehicle with better safety features, and that’s also making part of the decision by the management of the Kalyan School to buy a school bus of the Tata brand.
Education institutions in Nepal are giving more importance to comfort and safety features these days.
Tata Motors is India’s largest automobile company and sells eight school bus models—from 14- to 56-seater—under Marcopolo and Wrangler brands. Tata Motors is the country’s market leader in commercial vehicles and among the top in passenger vehicles.
Whether a teacher, a parent, a school bus driver or a partner in the school bus industry, it is of paramount importance that one is committed to educating today’s youth and motoring public, on the importance of school bus safety.
The new school bus is very much loved by the students nowadays, but the first trip of the bus was reserved for the teachers of Kalyan School. They all went on a common staff school picnic to Dakshinkali temple to inaugurate the new school bus.
The loyal bus driver and his assistant bring our students safe and well to school and back home. Due to the number of students who’re using the school bus system, the bus has to drive twice every morning and evening and gets assistance for the transportation of more students from another private bus whose services are hired on yearly base.
