The PBL’s 2nd quarter of the academic year commenced on 25th July and concluded on 30th September. This quarter was centred on two compelling themes “Child Rights’’ for PBL7 and “English Preparation” for PBL6. Over the course of ten weeks, a range of activities were conducted targeting English language proficiency, raising awareness about Child Rights, and fostering reading habits to enhance creativity and collaboration among the students. In addition to the academic aspects, Amics del Nepal actively promotes health objectives aligning with Sustainable Development Goal 3. As an aspect of this initiative, all the students were provided with sportswear of their choice, adding to their comfort and enjoyment during their sports visit to Dunkmandu (a sports facility ). Furthermore, a guest speaker session on Child Labour was organised for PBL7 students to broaden their knowledge base and enable them to interact with experts beyond their immediate facilitators.
PBL6 final event unfolded on 29th September with an audience composed of Amics staff and interns. Embracing the overall theme “Me and My Neighbour”, students working in pairs presented their written reflections on different subtopics spanning from self-exploration to family, school, environment and neighbours. The students demonstrated poise and confidence during their recitation. The event led up with an enchanting dance performance by the PBL6 students, leaving a lasting impact on all attendees.
PBL7 final event emerged on a bright Saturday morning, 30th September. The audience consisted of parents, guardians, Amics staff and interns. The students commenced the event with a warm welcome and proceeded to share insightful presentations on Child Rights and Child Labour. Following the presentations, students astounted the audience with their drama on Child Labour, shedding light on the harsh realities of this issue. The parents present were visibly moved with one parent aptly summarising the experience stating, “ Really well presented, a drama based on real life”.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
