The English Boarding School is a small privat school with around 400 students from nursery to grade 10 and 17 teachers. The school is located along the main road in Biratnagar and was founded 20 years ago by the father of the present principal. The principal and his wife are two of the five shareholders. Infrastructure and equipment are rather simple. The students often come from a poor background with illiterate parents
We tried to improve the teaching quality of the school by visiting many classes, giving feedback to the teachers and organising more than 20 workshops with relevant topics, like lesson planning, asking good questions, classroom management, motivation, playway method, create the own teaching and play material, mathematics, science, language, etc.
Some of the teachers started immediately to change their teaching habits, prepare their lessons, work with teaching materials and let the students learn for themselves. The principal supported our intentions and promised to enforce positive changes even after our departure.
