Lincoln School Hosts the First Young People’s Choir of Kathmandu

Last Sunday, Lincoln School organized and hosted the first-ever Young People’s Choir of Kathmandu. This involved six diverse schools from around the valley and over 100 children. They learned the song “Give us Hope,” which is about children asking for their voices to be heard. “Give Us Hope” has become somewhat of an anthem for children worldwide. It can be heard as you leave the 9/11 museum in NYC.

The children partook in a day of making new friends, soccer, dance/theater, and of course singing!

Before we left for winter break, Lincoln School’s Elementary Honor Choir performed with the Kathmandu Chorale. The Honor Choir joined the chorale of about 50 singers in singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as well as performing their own set of songs.  In front of an audience of about 300 people, the Honor Choir did a beautiful job representing our Lincoln School Music community.

Swimmers Make Waves at 4th Lincoln Swimming Championships!

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.

The LSPA @ the 2017 Lincoln Swim Meet

As every year, the LSPA was extremely busy at the 2017 Lincoln Swim Meet! We served complimentary food and drinks to the swimmers and had the same available for purchase for the spectators.

We were also able to take high resolution photos of some of the swimmers (and coaches).


 

Happy Dashain!
