On January 14, the Experiential Learning (EL) group had its final event to wrap up their third quarter. During the third quarter, students worked on the concept of solidarity and learned about its significance. In the event, they presented their findings and knowledge about solidarity by sharing their experiences and learning. In addition, they sang a group song about unity and solidarity, and performed a cultural dance. It was a short event presented to the students of PBL in the Activity Centre.
In the past eight sessions, the students were introduced to the concept of solidarity and its importance through videos and class activities. They were also encouraged to do one solidarity activity each week, such as cleaning their rooms, helping their family with house chores, and maintaining their learning space.
The EL session is conducted every Saturday with the students of grades eight, nine, and ten at the Activity Centre. Because of the time limit, it is difficult to provide enough exposure to concepts under study. However, through some field visits, guest speakers, workshops, and small events such as this, we have been able to encourage and motivate them to learn more and develop their communication, critical thinking, and leadership skills.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
