This is Maya Poudyal, School Captain and SEE graduate of the year 2077-78. Triyog has been my home for the last 10 years and everyone here my family. I still remember my first day at school; I did not know anyone and had no idea where my class was. But as time went by, I slowly adapted to the new surroundings. This was only possible with the help of my beloved teachers and friends.
I was a shy student and did not have much confidence in myself. I feared to give a presentation or deliver a speech in front of a crowd. Even so, my teachers never stopped helping and pushing me further out of my comfort zone to better myself. Triyog always provides so much variety of opportunities for its students to learn from be it co-curricular or extra-curricular.
Due to the vast field of opportunities and excellent teachers, I have been able to learn so much more, explore myself, build my leadership and collect experience.
By having the experience of being a House Junior Prefect, School Vice-Captain and School Captain, Triyog has helped me achieve a better version of myself. Hence, I can positively say that I am confident of myself and have bettered myself in many prospects.
I sincerely thank Triyog Family for all these years of learning and growth that I have achieved. It would never have been possible without the help of my teachers and the administration. The time I have spent in Triyog will always remain in my heart.
My Experience About Online Class
Online classes are happening because of Covid-19. Our school has conducted online classes from last year. Learning is fun in online classes because we can stay at home and take classes safely. I learnt how to use devices properly. It is faster and easier to do our homework. Throughout the year I have got to know about many things even in a situation like this. I miss my friends and teachers. Sometimes I join my friends’ meetings and chat with them. Sometimes I face problems due to the internet. My little brother sometimes disturbs my class so I turn off my video.
My Learning Experience this Year
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the normal lifestyles of people across the world, everything has stopped working the way it used to be previously. Almost all the schools have been shut down. Government announced lockdowns all over the country. During the earlier weeks and months of lockdown, I stayed home with my family. From March, our school conducted online classes via zoom. In the beginning, I found zoom meetings a bit difficult and a kind of awkward too because I wasn’t friendly with the devices. Later I got used to it and became friendlier with the devices. I had to take online classes and spend most of the time in front of the screen. It started to hurt my eyes as more screening time is not good for our health. But at that time, we had no other choice. I felt something missing and found it different to see my teachers and friends on screen. At first, I had difficulties in joining the meetings as well as in audio and video. At that time, the unstable internet was the biggest issue for all of us. Only fact I didn’t like was that the online classes had a limited time. It was not enough. So, I couldn’t interact a lot with my teachers and friends . Sometimes the meetings ended in the middle and we had to rejoin again. I also had to do my assignments in our school L M S. In the beginning it was a bit difficult for me to open L M S and do assignments in the word file and I had to attach it and send it back to the teachers. It took a while for me to understand. But after a few weeks I got used to it.
After almost a year our school reopened. I was really happy and excited to have physical classes again. Finally, I got to meet my teachers and friends physically. Being in the physical classroom, I found it completely different from the online classes. It was easier for me to understand the lessons. I had more opportunities to ask questions when needed. I got ample opportunities to share more things in front of my classmates and teachers. In my opinion, physical classes are much more effective than online learning.
Unfortunately, our school closed again because of the new variant of coronavirus. I’m doing my online classes from home again. This pandemic has taught me so many things such as education is not limited to schools only, being healthy is important, we should take safety measures seriously, family is everything etc. Lockdown is the only solution and staying at home is the safest place these days. So, please stay at home. Stay safe and stay healthy.
‘’ WE SHALL OVERCOME SOME DAY.WE SHALL ALL BE FREE. WE SHALL ALL BE FREE. WE SHALL ALL BE FREE SOMEDAY. ‘’
Neha Kharel, Grade V ‘B’
This session of Grade V has been different. Everything online, less communication, no physical touch and what not, but today I want to reflect back to the memories I shared with my classmates and my teachers starting from 5th of May, 2020. I had seen some of the teachers and students back in 2019 but some were new and I was really excited to talk to them but I was kind of anxious and confused on how to start the conversation.
May 5th was the first day of our class. Everybody was new to Zoom platform and I was scrolling through the participants list ensuring that all my friends were in my section. Thankfully, there were! Then I had to face my fear. ‘Neha, it’s your turn now! Come on, give your introduction!’ the teacher called out, I froze. I didn’t know what to say! But then, I answered. Might not be the best answer but after all, it was okay. After that, I learnt to take initiative, build my confidence and be proud of my as well as others achievements and eventually in a blink of an eye we are now going to Grade 6.
It just feels like the time passes so quickly unless it’s about being in classes. Every moment I shared with my friends and my teachers whether it is good, better, best or maybe bad, worse or worst, it will always remain in my thoughts, my memories, treasured safely. Thank You teachers for helping whether it is on a math problem or pushing me forward to do my best. Thank You friends, for making me smile on my lowest of times and being a part of my journey of Grade 5. We were, are and will always be a family. Together we can, let’s step forward and make a difference.
