KATHMANDU, Feb 27: Ullens School, Lalitpur, Nepal is hosting the International College and Career Counseling (IC3) Regional Forum on March 2.

This is the third year in a row that Ullens School and IC3 are collaborating to organize the forum that aims to bring educators, guidance counselors, and parents together for a meaningful engagement.

Ullens School, which is run under the Ullens Education Foundation (UEF), has a partnership with Bank Street Graduate School of Education, New York. The central philosophy of the school remains in encouraging intellectual curiosity, fostering international mindedness, nurturing critical thinking with an emphasis on making a meaningful difference to the global community.

This year's regional forum - focused on the theme of From Competition to Competence - aspires to bring counselors from all over Nepal and international admissions representatives to share their perspectives, experiences, and resources when it comes to providing impactful guidance to high school students. The forum will feature a keynote lecture, learning sessions from educators and counselors on topics pertaining to guidance counseling, and networking sessions with universities and parents.

Around 20 international universities and 60 domestic schools will be participating in this momentous one-day event which aims to provide a platform for purposeful interaction amongst Nepali educators, international higher education representatives, and Nepali students and parents. 

Medin Lamichhane, principal of Ullens School, is scheduled to deliver opening remarks and Ganesh Kohli, founder of the IC3 movement, will deliver a session on “Transforming Schools through Counseling”. Shisir Khanal, the former Minister for Education, Science, and Technology will deliver the keynote address.

Both Ullens School and the IC3 believe that this will be a landmark opportunity to generate awareness about the significance of guidance counseling in schools around Nepal.
