Language Policies

English is the medium of instruction, as fluent English is usually a basic requirement for admission to centers of higher education. It gives access to modern knowledge not readily available in Nepal.

It is an easy means of communication in the international sphere of life. It is a language which can be easily understood in different parts of the world. With the growth of trade and commerce, it has spread across the length and breath of universal culture and embraces various departments of knowledge.

English is the language of diplomacy and it contains many a rich literary treasure; it gives us an introduction to western thought and culture.

Beside English which is the medium of instruction, the school emphasizes on Nepali. Nepali is our national language and so is given its due importance. Certain subjects such as social sciences and Nepali are taught in Nepali. Many co-curricular activities are also done in Nepali.

Attendance Policies

Students are not allowed to leave the school compound for any reason unless they have prior permission from the principal or concerned authority. For special permission to leave school early due to medical appointments, written requests should reach the principal or concerned authority before the commencement of classes on a particular day.

Any student who is absent for more than 5 percent of the total number of working days in a term may not be eligible to take the tests or exams for that term .These include excused as well as unexcused absences but special provisions can be made for the students with a prolonged illness.

A medical certificate must be produced before the child returns to the school. Students must submit letters of absence to their principal or the concerned authority before they resume their classes. The letters should clearly state the reason for absence.

If a student continues to be absent for more than a week without giving information to the principal or concerned authority, his/her name will be struck off the rolls and the students has to be readmitted. The school will not arrange special tests or exams missed due to absence.

ASSIGNMENTS POLICIES

  • Students are expected to do homework which includes written, oral work and research based project works. Homework serves three important purposes:

  • Parents are requested to go through their children’s diaries and ensure that they do their homework regularly.
  • A student returning from an illness or absence must meet his or her resumes school to find out how much has been covered in class during his/her absence. Students who remain absent are responsible for finding out the homework either from their teachers or other students in their class. A student must submit all assigned work immediately upon return. It is the student’s / parent’s responsibility not the teacher’s to make sure that all missed work due to absence is completed.
  • If an assignment is not submitted on time the student will get zero for that assignment.

The syllabus being vast, all the exercise at the end of every chapter cannot be done in class due to time limitations. A major part of every exercise is done in class. The rest is left to the students to complete at home. At home, the students are expected to learn, revise and practice the lessons and skills taught in class. Parents/ Guardians should supervise student’s home work and make sure that the students complete the work assigned to them.

Students who are weak in studies can also attend these classes.
