Completion of the Internship Programme for CFS Project

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!

English Through Drama

A new project for Right4Children is teaching English Language through Drama. It’s a project that brings teachers and students together to bond and to learn. As well as learning English in a fun way, students will acquire confidence and many other useful life skills. From 14th to 25th November a total of 88 English teachers from 36 schools were trained to use drama as a tool to teach; which was facilitated by Shaun Macloughlin, Mimie Acuna, Anver Jr Regalado and the Right4Children team. The aim of the ETD programme is to enable both the teachers and the students to enhance creativity and fun in their learning procefss.

The teacher’s existing interest in drama was increased and facilitated by the training and they were very active in the participation during the learning process. The techniques that the teachers learnt have been applied in the classrooms and they have found them to be very successful with the students, who are very much enjoying the new approach.
