Dear Andrea Berner and family,,
Hope you are doing well and fine. Here we are nearing the Dashain festival and it’s from
coming Friday. This time there are no enthusiasm and excitement for the festival. People
are desperate and taking every caution to avoid the pandemic.
Here at school we are busy with the online classes. It’s going well.
We have send all the school text books to our kids during the month of
August/September. We packed the books in boxes and send it to different villages.
Around 95% of our kids are coming online. It’s matter of satisfaction that we could
at least run the classes through virtual online. This is the only option we have to
continue our learning process during this very very difficult time. Many kids have
managed WiFi in groups, some of them are using data facilities which the Nepal
Telecom has provided in good package for students. And also we do recharge from
school office to provide them the data to come online. Our teachers are regularly
coming to school as usual to conduct online classes and do their best to regulate
the best for our beloved kids.
We are through out the online classes since last three and half months and now it’s
time for First Terminal Exam from 15th October till 23 October, 2020. These days we
are busy with the exam. We send questions to the respective class group and receive
the answer sheets through messenger and we print the answer papers to check by
subject teachers. It’s very time consuming and lengthy process but it’s working well.
We still have five days of exam until coming Friday and then 4 days of Dashain
Festival break. We will have regular online classes from Wednesday 28th October.
This year we don’t have 35 days of Dashain and Tihar festival holidays, the 12 days
of winter break and some of the other occasional holidays that we used to enjoy.
We have decided to run the online classes during the holidays as well to cover all the
lessons for this school session 2020/2021. We can run the online classes even during the
lockdown as well. So,, we are very certain that we can accomplish our school
session 2020/2021 throughout this difficult time through virtual online classes.
We had second lockdown in September for three weeks and now it’s partially
open for transportation, shops, domestic flights, offices etc. Big gatherings,
Colleges, schools and cinemas are still not allowed. The situation here in Nepal
is getting worse. Till today the positive cases has now reached 132,246 and the
death toll 739 up to today’s figure. In Kathmandu valley itself the positive cases
has now reached 44,773 and death toll 158. We may face third lockdown if the
situation doesn’t improve in the times to come. Kathmandu valley is now the
HOT SPOT of COVID-19 !!! There are at least 2000 to 3000 new cases every day
in the valley. We fear that there are much more positive cases as the government
couldn’t trace it in large numbers. They are checking who got symptoms of
COVID only and not the ordinary people. So we can predict there are much more
in Kathmandu valley. We hope that the situation gets better around November,
so that we could start our school physically by the time.
Dear Andrea, I have a humble request to you that we have one boy in class
seven from Langtang. He needs sponsor to continue his studies at our school. He
was supported a half part by one gentle man from Kathmandu and now the
supporter is not able to continue. The half part is considered by myself from
school itself. He is from very deserving family. His father is a porter and mother
as farmer. No other means like lodge and tea shops there.
He got one younger brother whom I have found sponsor from USA.
The family is really a poor and needs some one for his better future. I would
Like to request you for this boy or bring in to our contact who can support him for
at least six years up to class XII. Your wonderful support will change the entire
life of this boy and give him a new life. So.,, please, do something for this very
With all our appreciation, thoughts and gratitude …
Please stay safe and healthy…
