Our most significant international partnership is with the Himalayan Milan School in Nepal. This link is hugely important to us as it also reflects our local community. The Nepalese Gurkha regiment has been based at Maidstone Barracks for a number of years, resulting in a vibrant Nepalese community in the local area. In 2004, 在线m88 set up a partnership working with and supporting The Himalayan Milan School in the rural village of Tang Ting, Nepal. This partnership has led to our students regularly participating in many Nepalese themed activities, including writing letters back and forth to penpals in the Himalaya Milan School, and using traditional Nepalese recipes within Food Technology lessons. In fact, our Geography department uses Nepal as a case study for both physical and human Geography, whilst our History department focuses on key events in Nepalese history. Furthermore, the Religious Studies department analyses Nepalese history and culture to broaden understanding when studying Buddhism. A number of assemblies throughout the year are based around our connections with Nepal, and the school canteen has a ‘Nepalese day’ where they serve traditional Nepalese food.
