Teachers from the GHN Seed schools have participated in 2 Leadership Training Courses in May 2011 and April 2012. At the end of each course each school had prepared an action research plan for implementing some aspect of GNH in their schools. Six months following the courses they met to share their mid-term action research reports.
Here are 2 examples of materials used in the workshops to develop action research skills.
Some of the schools' final reports will later be published as examples of GNH implementation in schools.The focus of the schools' action research for 2011-12 was as follows:
Taju Primary and Shari HSS
Formative Assessment to improve the performance of students with special needs.
Improving parental involvement in school
Improving recreational spaces for pre-primary children
Developing children’s confidence and openness
Improving availability of clean water
Developing a sustainable waste management programme
In June 2013 there was an evaluation of the project. This resulted in proposals to expand teacher action research in more schools, by utilising existing project teachers as mentors and facilitators of Transformative Education for GNH action research workshops.
