Himalayan WhiteHouse School, situated in Subidhanagar, Tinkune, Kathmandu, is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB), providing IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) and IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) options for students.
Visual and Performing Arts
At Himalayan WhiteHouse School, the Performing Arts program aims to promote emotional exploration, imaginative thinking, and self-expression among children. Through music, dance, and drama, students engage their brains, bodies, and emotions in unique ways, fostering confidence and joy. Similarly, the Visual Arts program involves the study of various forms of art, including ceramics, printmaking, sketching, crafting, painting, textile design, drawing, digital painting, photography, sculptures, filmmaking, videography, architecture, artworks, short movies, and documentaries. Regular practices enable students to harness their imagination, creativity, and artistic skills.
The Study Hall program aims to promote student engagement, focus and productivity. It is mandatory for all boarding students on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The program provides an environment where students can complete their academic work, receive academic support, and collaborate with teachers and peers. Through this program, students are encouraged to develop self-motivation, and take ownership of their academic performance.
The classrooms are furnished with computers that have internet connectivity, and smart boards to provide students with the latest learning experience. Besides, they offer ample opportunities for students to venture beyond the classroom and learn independently. To achieve this, field trips and outdoor activities that focus on specific subjects or integrate different areas of study are organized. Additionally, the school encourages research-based projects that complement the traditional lecture-based approach.
Maintaining a cordial relationship among teachers, parents, and students is crucial for the overall development of every child. To achieve this, regular parent-teacher meetings to share information about the student's activities are organized. They also welcome any suggestions from parents and guardians regarding the progress of their wards.
Language is a crucial aspect of a student's education as it allows them to engage actively in various learning communities both inside and outside the classroom. When students speak, write, and read, they can reflect, create, analyze, and synthesize ideas and experiences. Language also promotes critical and creative thinking and helps students develop metacongition, which enables them to reflect on and regulate their own learning process. Students at HWS have the chance to learn multiple languages, such as Nepali, Newari, Chinese, and French, and they also offer language support programs to enhance their language skills.
