The KISC campus is located in Dhobighat, Lalitpur, Kathmandu. It consists of three main buildings, along with a number of minor ones, the latter housing EQUIP (Education Quality Improvement Programmes), the Reception, the Senior Common Room plus the Boys and Girls Changing Rooms.
The main building contains almost all of the classrooms, with generally one classroom for every subject taught at KISC. The administration wing contains offices for the Principals and Administrative staff, a staff lounge and a workroom. The Hall is a separate building used for assemblies, productions and sports.
The school has a main IT lab with enough computers for each pupil to work individually for every lesson. There are several other labs where pupils can access computers outside of Information and Communication Technology lessons. Pupils will also have access to other peripherals (such as scanners and printers) necessary for their coursework. A digital camera and video camera are also available to add images from field trips and to PowerPoint presentations and other projects. Each department is currently in the process of building up its collection of interactive media and DVDs for students and staff to use.
The campus is well-maintained by our own ancillary staff, with gardeners, maintenance men, carpenters, a driver and cleaners all working with us to keep KISC a pleasant, efficient place to work and study. Security is provided twenty-four hours a day by our day and night chowkidars.
- The KISC library is fully automated with a user-friendly computer catalogue (OPAC) installed on the computers. This allows students and staff easy access to the school network, to the internet and to the database which contains the details of all the resources housed in the library. The library database, which is called Oliver, has a junior and a senior version and a book wizard to help students find books to suit their own interest and reading level.
- The Library helps meet the recreational & research needs of our students and staff through its collection of Reference, Non-fiction texts, fiction books. magazines, and DVDs. Fiction books for older readers (15+) are located in the separate Senior Fiction Section. There is also a Teacher/Parent collection.
- Internet access is available on the computers for individual or small groups.
- Students in Grade 6 and 7 have Library Skills lessons twice a week, where information literacy skills are developed. The processes of defining, selecting, organizing, presenting and evaluating information are taught in a sequential and developmental way.
- Our goal is to provide for the teaching and learning needs of KISC; to maintain a collection of resources that meets those needs, to develop information literacy skills and to encourage the love of reading for recreational and research purposes, so that our students will become discerning, independent learners.
- Outside users can apply for library membership. They will be charged a fee for this service.
