March 22nd 2018
Today was English.
Our boarding students all told me they had a good night sleep and were ready at 5am to do more last minute revising !
At 6.30 am sharp, after the day students arrived to school, we did one more boosting meditation before getting into the school bus to make it to Panauti town, 5 kms from Namo Buddha School.The chosen exam centre last year was Patichaur. This time the beautiful old town of Panauti, close to its breath-taking Indreshor Temple Complex.
All students were relaxed and confident...The way l like it.
We patted them on the back, wished them Best of Luck and waved them off into the Policed Centre.
Chandra Lama, Aman Sir and l had a couple of hours to kill whilst the exams were running, so we meandered in the old town, had a shave in a most gloriously decorated Barber Shop and drank endless cups of sweet milk tea before we could collect our brood.
The return journey by bus was like being inside a Party Palace on Wheels !
Our students had done well and deserved to let their hair down for one hour before attacking tomorrow's task.
We are all so proud of them and of all the students all over Nepal.
These exams are still, for many, the make or break into adulthood and self sufficiency !
The rest of the day was spent with the other smaller children and getting totally engrossed in games and laughter.
Tonight at 9pm sharp, meditation then bed !
Thank you all for your best wishes and encouragements.
It has been another fabulous day in Real Nepal !
