EPS foundation day marked

The English Preparatory School (EPS) celebrated its 40th Foundation Day and the birthday of its founder-principal NK Singh at Nepal Academy Hall on September 18. The programme started at 12:30pm with the new national anthem followed by marvellous performances by the students. The performances included songs and dances — both folk and modern. The SLC batch of 2063 BS was also felicitated on that day. It was really a lot of fun for everyone, especially the students of Class X as it was the last programme of our school life.

Teachers perform for kids

The Future Stars High School celebrated the Children’s Day. This was an enjoyable and memorable for students as we got a chance to see our senior and junior teachers perform on stage. It was very entertaining to watch the performances. The performance in the song Chali chali from the Bollywood film Baghban was very enjoyable, and so was the one performed by our junior teachers Jamuna and Kabita maams and others. Our senior teacher Gita maam also gave a performance exactly like that of a concert singing remixed versions of old songs. She also sang a Nepali song translating it into English.
