Navjyoti School, Surkhet, participated in the British Council International School Award Program. Despite lockdown, students completed several projects. As a result, the school was honored for winning the Foundation Award on International Literacy Day by the Education Department of Birendranagar Municipality.

Sister Elizabeth Lobo, SCN, principal of the school, said this was the first time Navjyoti School has been accredited to the ISA program. The projects the students worked on included understanding waste management, learning about domestic violence issues and responsibilities toward senior citizens, collaborating with schools in India, learning entrepreneurial practices and more.

“I see a great difference among our students of doing all these activities. The students were lively, active, excited, and learned the skills of collaboration, leadership, and teamwork,” Sister Elizabeth said. “It also has built a strong relationship among the students and the students of international schools. Though there were several hurdles, especially due to the lockdown, our teachers, parents, and students cooperated to make this project a success.”
