The project worked towards improving teaching-learning pedagogy as well as classroom structure of grades I to III at nine partner schools in six VDCs in northwest Kavre District. The nine schools formed a cluster that built networks and initiated good practices like self-assessing achievements, sharing success stories, learning from each other and planning.
The project was implemented in two key ways. The first step consisted of school assessment, assessment of students, and planning with Principals. Secondly, teacher-preparation, supply of materials, and monitoring took place. With exposure to school-management essentials and support from RBF, the Principals sat together to develop an annual action plans. Teachers of grades I to II were prepared in a five-month-long training session in child-centered learning and effective teaching. They learnt
skills related to effective teaching methods and techniques as well as classroom scheduling and organization, evaluation of students’ progress, parental involvement, child club formation, and establishing a library.
