On Sunday 7th January a closing ceremony was held for the seven month internship programme (June – December) for Child Friendly Schools Project, where certificates and token of love were given to the twelve interns who had participated. Twelve different schools each had a university graduate intern to carry out CFS project activities during the programme.
At the ceremony, each intern gave a presentation to conclude on their achievements and also gave an overview of what they had learnt. Many of the interns described the experience as ‘eye opening’ and reflected on the many new things that they had learnt. They explained that they now have a good understanding of how schools operate in Nepal and said how much they leant from being integrated in the different societies and cultures; as well as understanding different people’s lifestyles. A common reflection of the interns was that their motivation to work hard during the programme came from the school children that they had met there.
Congratulations to the twelve interns and best wishes for their future!
