Five Lincoln School swimmers returned to campus with big smiles today after representing Nepal in the FINA World Junior Swimming Championships. Akshara, Alex, Oshina, Tisa and Ugyen swam some of their personal best times, as they competed against the top young swimmers in the world. A special congratulations to both Alex and Tisa for breaking national records! Alex broke a 14-year-old Nepali national record when he swam the 50 meter freestyle in 26.18, while Tisa lowered her own national record that she set at the World Championships in Budapest with a time of 1.26.01. Congratulations to our Lincoln swimmers on their fine performances!

Art Show and Aspiring Artists!

Grade 4 and Grade 5 students had the opportunity to attend the Quality Kathmandu Schools art show at Siddhartha Art Gallery in Barber Mahmal Revisited. As aspiring artists themselves, our students surveyed art created by older students from schools in Kathmandu. During the visit they noted key art elements and techniques, and  discussed their interpretations of the various pieces within the show.  It was an inspiring trip and our Lincoln artists have now begun creating their own art!!!
