Children at School
  • They begin their school day typically at 6.00 am with tea and a biscuit before taking a shower followed by play and homework revision time. At 8.00 am they have their first proper meal and then go to school, where lessons start at 9.00 am and finish at 4.00 pm.
  • The education manager supervises their homework before dinner, which is at around 7.30 pm in accordance with Nepalese habits. They play or finish their homework and are in bed, hopefully content, by 9.00 pm.
  • On Saturday and during school holidays, the children play music and enjoy drawing and dancing lessons. Picnics and sightseeing activities are also arranged.
  • In October 2007, a group of trekkers raised funds for CAN enabling us to buy a large screen TV at LBU1, on which our children and staff can watch DVDs and selected programmes from Discovery or National Geographic channels.
  • Our children at LBU2 are still very young and like watching cartoons.
