SCHOOL TOUR - 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 laser printer, footballs, volleyballs and larger items like a complete volleyball court including volleyball stands, a volleyball net and a huge bamboo fence around the playground to prevent the balls from going 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.

 

Once a year the school organises a school tour. Unfortunately not everyone is able to go on this tour. Parents have to pay a tour fee and for most families this fee is simply too high. So, from all the students (about 160), normally around 30 to 40 students go on the school tour. As some teachers also go on the tour, those students unable to go have a holiday.

 

The purpose of these trips is usually educational observation or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, e.g. sleeping overnight with teachers and their classmates at local youth hostels.

Normally a school tour takes about 4-5 days. Different from "western" schools, Nepali school tours do not take the students to amusement parks, theme parks or other 'child friendly' sites. Actually, it would be better to call it an "educational tour" instead of a "school tour". During these 4-5 days the students and teachers visit all kind of different industrial sites across the country. For instance: a biscuit factory, a cement factory or an Hydro-power plant (which is normally "off limit" for public).

 

If you`re lucky the school tour takes you to the capital city Kathmandu to show you the touristic sites, or it takes you to Southern Nepal to visit the elephants and other wild animals in Chitwan, a huge national park. Or if you get really lucky it takes you to a tea plant somewhere in India and that means going international. But this is an exception, as most of the school tours are meant to teach the students about the industrial capacity of Nepal.

 

In 2008 a one-off donation by oHoH prevented cancellation of the annual school tour due to a lack of funding, when a miscalculation created a Rs 25.000 gap. Needless to say there were some very happy students (and teachers) that year!
