Achieving another milestone

JAAGO Online Schools: 5 New Schools Launched in December 2014

 The JAAGO Foundation has successfully inaugurated 5 new online schools in the month of December 2014. After the remarkable success of our online schooling program which was initiated in 2011 with our Gazipur branch; the JAAGO foundation now has 10 existing online schools nationwide. The online schooling program was introduced as a solution to the lack of educators outside the major cities to provide students with the JAAGO standard of education. These five new schools have been established in Rangpur, Dinajpur, Teknaf, Habiganj and Laxsmipur. The school in Teknaf is located towards the end of Bangladesh, along the borders where there are no options for schooling. In Habiganj the school is situated in a tea estate to cater to the education needs of the children of the workers who are mostly of tribal ethnicity. Like the motive behind every JAAGO online school these too where established in order to facilitate the locals in remote areas of the country with quality education. 40 children were taken in as the first batch for each of these schools.

New bags New Hope

There is something about a new school bag at the start of the academic year. It is an instant boost of enthusiasm to give one’s best and ace those courses! For a JAAGO student who lives a life that seldom can offer such simple luxury; a brand new school bag is a bundle of hopes and dreams. Courtesy of KrisEnergyall JAAGO students now own school bags that they bring to school.

Treehouse for JAAGO

 Dhaka Tribune, apopular local English daily has taken the initiative to provide students of the JAAGO Foundation with their weekly supplement. “Treehouse” is a fun way to introduce young minds to a diverse range of topics. The weekly contains a commendable range of pictures, rhymes, puzzles, comics, drawing and articles that could capture a child’s attention. The habit of newspaper reading also is an effective way to enhance the students’ command over English. We appreciate Dhaka Tribune’s partnership with JAAGO in ensuring the development of reading habits outside school material.

21ST February: International Mother’s Language Day observed

 The JAAGO Foundation has always firmly believed in inculcating a deep sense of nationalism amongst its students. A thorough knowledge of Bangladesh’s history is an essential part of JAAGO’s schooling program. That kept in mind, like every year International Mother’s Language Day was observed nationwide in all the 13 JAAGO schools. The students paid their respects to the national flag. A session of paying their tributes to the language martyrs with flowers at the “ShaheedMinar” was conducted within the school premises. The traditional “Ekushey” book fair was organized and every student went back home with a handful of good reads! An art competition was also organized to stir the students’ imaginations in depicting the series of events that took place in 1952.
