Working through the Pandemic At Heartland College, Nepal

Updated: Jan 3



We have recently been informed that the Nepalese government is recommending that learning remain online for Nepalese students until the end of their educational year, which will take us to March 2021.


As Heartland Academy Nepal remains closed for face-to-face classes, the students continue their learning remotely using Zoom and Google Meetings. Whilst the teaching staff have been incredible and so adaptable, it has still been a struggle for many students and their families. Throughout the pandemic period, the Heartland Alumni Network Division (HAND) has been delivering weekly online tutorial sessions for teachers and students.


One recent session focused on the usability and application of two of the most essential Google applications (Google Meet and Google Classroom). This is a great example of former Heartland college students and LBW Trust scholarship recipients continuing to give back and use the innovative skills developed through education facilitated at Heartland to lead and build capacity during this time of crisis.


One of our students commented:


We are following the guidelines provided by the Department of Health and the government of Nepal. Our classes are running on the Internet or online classes. I am learning through different YouTube videos and Google notes.
Now I’m living in the College hostel and the necessary materials for online classes are provided. In online classes, we get suggestions about coronavirus and its preventive measures.
The lockdown is increasing day by day and many people are affected by coronavirus and are losing their life, but I’m trying to be safe from this virus.”
