PARENTS DAY - DACS SCHOOL

oHoH has been involved in Shree Durga Adarsha Community School (DACS) since 2006. It was the first school where we started teaching and donating materials. We donated items like a big laser printer, footballs, volleyballs and larger items like a complete volleyball court including volleyball stands, the volleyball net itself (of course) and a huge bamboo fence around the playground so the balls would not go over the steep cliff which is right next to the playground.

 

During a 5 year teaching period we also participated in several extracurricular activities like Sports Day, Parents Day, school tours and picnics.

 

During Parents Day the children get their final mark sheets. How did they do at school during the year? If you did well you get a tika for good results.

(Note on the tikaa red mark applied to the forehead with a washable, coloured paste made of rice and water, given in appreciation:

In Nepal you can score different levels of achievement in school. If you score 80% or higher you score a 'distinction'. Between 70-80%: 'First grade'. Between 60-70%: 'Second grade' and between 50-60%: 'pass'. Below 50% you 'failed'. Depending on the score you have at the end of the year you receive a tika for good results. Normally all children who score first in class will get a tika, as well as all 'distinction' children. But also the results from Sports Day are being rewarded, and those children who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd in a game also receive a tika. A tika is a way to show appreciation towards, in this case, a good result from a student. During Parents Day tikas are usually given by the school principal or a VIP who has been invited by the school. But also class teachers sometimes give tikas to students. Every school has its own ways for giving tikas.)  

 

Parents are also getting information about the upcoming year. What can be expected from the school and what can, and will be expected from the parents? When will the first lessons start? What will the school fee be for this year? Which books need to be bought by the parents? There is time to meet new teachers and to have a chat with them. 

 

Parents Day is about ending the school year as well as celebrating the start of a new school year with music, dancing, acting and children telling jokes. All this in front of parents, grandparents, villagers and those who are interested in what's happening at the school.

 

Usually the entire village visits the school during Parents Day. They want to see their children dancing, singing and acting. The performance in front of an audience is not taken lightly by the children and they already start practicing weeks in advance. Often, they even stay behind once school is over for the day to practice their act. And then, weeks later, during the actual performance, when everything goes smoothly you can see the joy the children have, performing in front of their family and friends.
