Students, mostly 10th graders were very interested in the presentation. We received a lot of thoughtful answers for the subjective questions of the survey. There were quite a few students who approached us and asked reflective questions after the program. One student asked if we had considered teaching about the Nepalese civil war, which would be much easier to relate to, than the Second World War. We answered that it would be very hard to remain neutral on the issues of the war that we have experienced ourselves, and the last thing we would want the student group to is be divided based on political ideologies. But we do want students to think about various wars and reflect on those wars so that we can infer pressing lesson from them. There were others who wanted to know how the project started and why. We discussed on these questions briefly and directed them to our website: annefranknepal.org for further information.
Overall, the program ran very smoothly and the response we received from students were really reflective. Thanks to Nicholas Kang, Sabi Gurung and Subhash Ghimire for their effort. It was Nicholas' first school visit after coming to Nepal from Canada to help us with the project. We all are now looking forward to meeting more students from other institutions in the future.
Here are few pictures from the project today:
