All of the children
Our twinned school coordinator, Johnny Halls, has visited Himalaya School in Mahachap and held an education session with the teachers regarding their responsibilities in a twinned schools relationship and explaining the potential benefits to the pupils, teachers and community that might arise from the relationship once properly established and regularly contributed to.

The following information from Johnny will be used to update the school's profile page:

The twinning programme has started with year 5 and the twinning co-ordinator is Dan Bahadur Palli, he is the English and social studies teacher. 

Out of the 5 teachers, 3 are male and 2 female.
The pupil profile now stands at
Boys - 65
Girls - 59
Total - 124
Pre-school - 14
Year 1 - 12
Year 2 - 24
Year 3 - 24
Year 4 - 27
Year 5 - 23

The school also holds a music/dancing event every night, where the children and teachers and local villagers come to the school from around 8-11 each night and sing, play music and dance.
 
The school has a basic first aid kit, with some things used but the majority intact.

There is a mothers/women’s group which has a very strong presence in the school/village. The entire village is involved in the schools development. 

I’m not sure if you want me to grade the school, in relation to the school infrastructure profile, e.g. poor, acceptable, good. Let me know if you want me to do it and I will.

I have spoken to the school about setting up a bank account with a local bank such that funding can be delivered direct to the community.
