Welcome Back Picnic Brings Community Together

The Lincoln School Welcome Back Picnic was happy-blue and sunshine yellow. From majestic bouncy castles, to the Gr.5 smashing single release of, “Notorious D.O.G,” to save the street dogs, there was something for everyone.

The ES Music team brought the packed house to their feet with thunderous applause and sentimental tears during a special rendition in Swahili.

There were several alumni vendors that provided delicious food for the event, while the Secondary Band played throughout the day.

Snow Leopard merchandise was on display for students, families, alumni and staff.

HS PLUM team and StuCo also had booths up to support causes and to raise awareness.

Thank you for coming!

Primary 1 teaches the Grade 12s Math Games!

The Primary 1 children welcomed the Grade 12 advisory students into their math lesson. The P1s taught the G12s how to play two math games using dot cards. The first game is “Top-It” where each player gets an equal amount of cards that they do not look at. At the same time, both players take a card from the top and place on the table, dots up. The player with the greater number of dots wins both cards. The second game is “Match-It” where all the cards are placed face down and each player takes turns flipping two cards over. When two cards match then the player gets to keep them. This goes on until all pairs are matched. Everyone had a great time and the P1s are looking forward to teaching the G12s new games next month!

Grade 5 Music Field Trip

 

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!

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!

 

 

Pad2Go Pitches to PLUM

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.
