KATHMANDU, Nepal.– The Lincoln School Swim Team continued to make waves at the 4th Lincoln School Swimming Championships hosted at our school swimming complex over the weekend. Swimmers from ages eight to 18 competed in a range of competitive events, showcasing their growth, sportsmanship, passion and high level of performance. Lincoln School won the swim meet convincingly with over 800 points, with Nisarga Batika School coming in second with close to 300. A whopping 42 school records were broken at the meet, including some SAISA conference records! The coaches are all very proud of the swimmers’ efforts and would also like to thank the LSPA and student/teacher volunteers for supporting the running of the meet.
In Grade 5 music we have been learning about folk music and protest music. To culminate our unit, we embarked on a creative journey to write our own protest song. Last week we traveled to the Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory to professionally record our product.
The song will be available for purchase at the Back to School Picnic on September 29th. All proceeds from our song will be given to the Kathmandu Animal Treatment Center (KAT Center).
Below are some photos and a video from that field trip!

The power of storytelling makes for a fantastic professional development afternoon for #lsnepal.
Today we were fortunate to have a Lincoln School Alumni, Mr. Ron Gershon, return to the school for the first time since he attended from 1965-1967! He brought with him some old photographs and many wonderful memories of his time at Lincoln and in Nepal. His father was helping to manage the construction of the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu before the first jet aircraft landed in here in 1967!
A celebration of Lincoln’s passion for learning ushered in our MSA Accreditation self-study to explore our strengths and recognize growth areas. Focus group participants developed key questions while enjoying a beautiful rooftop view, delicious food, and collaborative discussions with colleagues.
On Tuesday, September 28th, the student organization PLUM (Please Learn and Understand Menstruation) met with social entrepreneurs Jesselina and Shubhangi Rana to learn about their new initiative “Pad2Go”. Pad2Go is a social business that imports pad vending machines from India for installment in Kathmandu schools. Part of the profits from the pad sales will be donated to the NGO SAATHI to build toilets for schools in far-west Nepal. PLUM will be discussing the viability of Pad2Go at Lincoln School during their next meeting.
On September 14th, the Class of 2019 participated in reading activities with students from Primary One in their first class buddy pairing. P1 students, who have been working on their story telling skills, shared their version of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” with original puppets they made to help tell the story. Next, the seniors read a story selected by each P1 student. Finally, the buddies took part in a STEAM activity in which they built a raft together out of straws and pipe cleaners. The object of the raft was to see if it could be built to hold a small plastic teddy bear. Buddies tested their designs in the new P1 water table to see if the rafts would float. The day was a great experience and success on many levels, and something both the seniors and Primary One students are looking forward to doing again.
