Shree Thumki Community Boarding School is situated a very small village called Thumki. The school was established in 2063 BS (2006 AD). It has around 75 children and 7 staff members. The school was founded by a small group of local villagers who wanted to have a better school than the local Government school. The school has 11 classes: from nursery up to class 6 (3 - 14 year old students). Over the years the school roll increased considerably and it is now a renowned local school.

 

While the school was doing well, the building itself wasn't in a good position. Right next to the playground was a steep cliff into which many balls had disappeared, considered to be lost. However, lost balls weren’t the main problem. With landslides a common danger at monsoon times, that steep cliff made the school and its playground a dangerous place to be.

 

One of the villagers had donated a new field where we would be able to build a new school including two new 'bricked' class rooms and a bigger playground. 

 

In February 2009 we started moving the old school to the newly donated field just below village centre. At the same time we started building new toilets, having decided against moving the old toilets, which consisted of nothing more than a bunch of leaves and branches put together.

 

After two months of hard work the old school buildings had been moved and new toilets built. Another two months later the two new bricked class rooms, one of them built with money from oHoH, were finished. Class 7 and 8 students were the lucky ones to use these classrooms.
