Shree Batase Secondary School, established in 2047 BS, is located in Melamchi of Sindhupalchowk district of Nepal. The community compromises 99% of Tamang and 1% of Dalit families. With the majority of Tamang families, there is no discrimination in the community based on the ethnic groups. After the massive earthquake, the school building was destroyed so students were taught in temporary classes. There were 256 students in the academic year 2075-2076 BS. Hence, recently, CARITAS organization constructed a building for the school with well-equipped classrooms. The new building also consists of a hostel for the students. However, the science lab, computer lab and library are in the same room.
One of the major challenges for the school is that due to its location transportation is not frequently available to bring the resources in the school. In monsoon, transportation completely stops. The resources ordered for the students or donated by Nagarpalika only reaches the school after a week. So, the books for the library are also limited because the school only depends on the book donation done by the tourists. One of the reasons for school in having less number of female students is the continued practice of girls eloping away from their houses and has remained a daunting problem in the community for years now.
