Know about Class 3 at SAV School.
Dear Friends around the world,
We, students of class 3 at SAV School are excited to write and let you know litte about you all. The name of our village is Bageshwori. It lies in a rural area of a Bhaktapur in Nepal. We are 19 in our class. There are 13 boys and 6 girls. We are 8 to 10 years old. We come from a rural area. Our school is in the middle of our village Bageshwori. The name of our school is SAV (Shantideep Adarsh Vidhyasadan = Peaceflame Ideal School). It's only Primary school. There are 138 students in our school. There should be 9 teacher in our school, but we have only 7. There are 8 classess from Nursery to class 5. In Nepal students are graded according to their ability and put in different classes. There are students from 3 to 13 years old . Some students really joined school late. Their parents couldn't send them school on time. There are grade teachers in Nursery, Junior kindergarten and senior Kindergarten. Class one above we have subject teachers. In our school teachers are changing frequently. They say that they want to have good salary, but they can't get here. Our school is really poor. Our principal and School manangement comittee is seeking sponsors for teachers' salary so that school can hire trained teacher who can work for longer period.
The medium of instruction is English and Nepali, our national language. All of us come from farmer families. We do not have enough money to buy school materials and even we can't have balanced diet in our meal. Our life is really not so comfortable. Our school is also not rich enough to supply us school materials. We have poor facilities. There are only simple desks and benches in a conjusted room. It's not decorated. If we could get materials we'd love to draw, paint and make crafts work and decorate the walls. There is an old blackboard in our classroom. Teachers use chalk to write on it. While cleaning the blackboard the classroom is dusty. We are really worrying for that. We demand our teachers use white boards and markers but they can't buy them. "That costs a lot," they say. Our parents have to buy school materials for us. Education here is not free. Parents can't buy enough materials for us. Therefore, we can't use enough materials in classroom activities. We don't have many choices with us though we love to do. We study English as second language, Nepali ( our national language), Math, Science, Social studies, drawing and creative arts (sometimes), at school. We play some indoor and out door games but no more options lacking materials and place. We often play local games which dn't need much materials. We sometimes want to play football, badminton, TT, basketball, carrom games. and so on.
We go to school for six days a week. Friday is half day school and Saturday is off. School starts on every Sunday. Our school starts at 9:45 am and finishes at 4 pm except Friday. On Friday it finishes at 1 pm. In the 5 school days we have break time at 1 pm to 1:40 pm. We sometimes carry food to eat in the lunch hour. We have our breakfast usually at 9 am and go to school. In break some of us eat some food if we bring from home. If not we go back home after 4 pm and have some food at home. Then we h ave dinner at abt 7 pm. In the break time we play some games and some of us rest, read some books or just talk one another.
Hope you will write us abt your school and classroom.
Students of Class 3,
SAV School, Nepal.

My day as a student
Wake up at six
Wash hands and face,
Drink a cup of tea
And play with mess.
When sun comes up
Mom calls for meal
Have rice with soup
Then run to school.
School is temple
Wisdom is praised,
Teachers are respected
For their aid.
School bell rings
Assemble in the ground,
Pray for the good day
Polite, happy and sound.
Learn many subjects
Languages, science… Continuer
