Abstract/Notes: Introduction: Nutrition is a fundamental pillar of human life, health and development across the entire life span. Nutritional status is directly influenced by food intake and the occurrence of infections. Academic performance, intellectual development, and school attendance of the children and school going children is adversely affected by under nutrition. Primary school is an important stage in the development of consciousness and personality of the child (1). Objectives: The objective of this study was to assess the effect of nutritional status on academic performance of school going children. Methodology: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in Budhanilkantha Municipality, Kathmandu. Anthropometric measurement was analyzed by using Gomez classification and Water low classification methods among 61 of the respondents. Findings: Among the total sample population, the prevalence of stunting, underweight, and wasting were 31%, 39.2%, and 36% respectively. The academic performance of the school-going children was 54.1% excellent, 39.3% good, and 6.6% satisfactory. Factors such as Age category (P=0.04), Mostly skip meals (P=0.008), Source of drinking water (P=0.006), Cause of Malnutrition (P=0.0089), Protein intake (P=0.004) and Fat intake (P=0.017) were found to be statistically significant with nutritional status (MUAC) of children. Factors such as, mostly skip meals (P=0.002), meat consumed per week (P=0.001), Source of drinking water (P=0.006), Total calorie intake (P=0.019) were found to be statically significant with underweight of children. Factors such as Religion (P=0.027), Father Education (P=0.010), Protein intake (P=0.033), and sweet consumption (P=0.007) were found to be statistically significant with academic performance of children. Conclusion: It is concluded that under nutrition (stunting and underweight) among children attending primary school is found prevalence and the academic performance of children is not associated with nutritional status.

Abstract/Notes: Ginni Sackett delves into the many implications of grace and courtesy, from social relations and the basis of community to respect for the child's personality. Her point of departure is modern social living with grace and dignity. Hers is an exploration over two generations of seeing grace and courtesy as a comprehensive social view that is the greatest goal for the Montessori teacher to empower adults and children to live sociably. She suggests that standards have changed greatly over two or three generations. To live within the school microcosm of a "society by cohesion" means that grace and courtesy is pervasive with every material used and work chosen, implying that it is part of nature's plan demonstrated by Montessori children in a prepared environment with social life practiced daily. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "Grace, Courtesy, and Civility Across the Planes," Portland, OR, March 13-16, 2014.]
