As I sit down to write this, our country, Nepal, along with all nations in the world, is embroiled in the perils that have been unleashed upon us by the COVID–19 pandemics. It is safe to say that every sector of economy has been hit hard by the after-effects of this unprecedented event, more so the education sector, and it does not seem far-fetched to assume that education, as we know of, in Nepal, stands to undergo major changes, in the days to come, the post–pandemic.
The last few decades have seen a paradigm shift, when it comes to the delivery of education, globally. In the simplest of terms, this shift can be explained as follows – schools and colleges which were earlier recognized for existing as ‘centres of information’ are increasingly being perceived to become, ‘centres of learning’. The objective is to produce learners, who are self–motivated, self–benefiting individuals and life–long learners, who can adapt to and respond appropriately to real life situations.
At NSS, enriched student experience, ranks high in our priority, and we ensure to provide every service that contributes to the academic development of a learner. From the moment a new student joins our school community, we want them to feel a sense of happiness and belonging, as this is essential to their future success. Our experienced and dedicated teaching faculty will enable us to deliver our academic programmes in an environment that is friendly and attuned to the need of every individual student. Our curriculum will be based on the requisites of the National Examinations Board (NEB). Therefore, learning as per the national curriculum will be the core of our educational practice, whilst implementing a more rigorous progressive approach, blended with global learning. I feel privileged to be back at NSS, where I began my career in education, more than two decades back, and lead such an exciting and vibrant school, that offers great opportunities for the young people of the country. I look forward to welcoming you to ensure the best standard of your education and personal development.
