Deactivation of the program on Globalgiving

Thank you for the support rendered to our project through Globalgiving. Dell Corporation, whose employees were earlier volunteering in the Domlur city school, are no longer engaged with the school. The school is  now being run with the support of a local donor. Hence the deactivation of the program on Globalgiving.

Sikshana Foundation continues to implement its education interventions in state-run primary and high schools in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, in its aim to improve learning levels of students in the public education system and faciliate quality education for these students.

Sikshana Foundation conducted the  Endline Assessment for children in the classes IV  to VII during the month of February 2015 in the Domlur city schools. The feedback from the assessment was positive with enhancement in learning levels for language reading and arithmetic skills.

Sikshana measures its program on the lines of the national assessment system ASER ( Annual Status Education Report)  which reflects the state of learning among children at the all India level. The ASER based assessment tests the basic language (reading simple sentences in the regional language) and mathematics skills (simple division skills) among children studying in Class IV to Class VII.

In schools adopted by Sikshana, the children are doing well in language and mathematics skills. Sikshana's intervention shows that the children are way ahead of ASER level skills. The highlight of the assessment was that in Government Higher Primary School (GHPS) at Appareddypalya, students of standard 6 achieved 100% in Kannada language reading skills and 66.67% in Mathematics. Similarly in GHPS Jogupalya  students of standard 6 achieved 100% in Kannada language reading skills and 57.14% in Mathematics. On an average, the schools achieved 81.81% in language  reading skills and 42% in Mathematics.

Sikshana's programs such as providing writing sheets, mentoring the children and motivating the below-average students and facilitating teachers training has helped in the overall development in the schools.

The schools were closed for summer holidays for a couple of months and during this period the field mentor engaged the students with reading and writing assignments of story books. The school reopened in the first week of June 2015 and children have rejoined the school with enthusiasm. Sikshana has begun the process of tracking children’s basic profile,

In addition to the regular on-going education interventions in the four government schools in Domlur, Bengaluru city, Sikshana Foundation co-ordinated to organize a special trip for students.  In the month of December an educative and entertainment one-day trip for students of these schools was organized.  On 29th December, 45 students of Appareddypalya Government Higher Primary School went on a trip to Bangaru Tirupathy, Kotilinga, Kaivara, Seethanjaneya Temple and Kailasagiri. These are places with historical significance in Karnataka and the students enjoyed the trip immensely. On the same day, a 30 member team of students and teachers from the Jogupalya Kannada Primary School also visited the same places.

 About 14 students and three teachers from Jogupalya Tamil Primary School visited Innovative Film City in Bidadi, enroute to Mysore. The students had a wonderful time going in and around the mock studios and enacting roles, besides playing a host of games.  The students of Jogupalya Urdu School went on a sight seeing trip of Bengaluru visiting places of interest such as Bannerghatta National Park, Vidhana Soudha, Visvesvaraiya Museum, and other tourist attractions of the city. 25 students and 5 teachers participated in this trip.

 For these students, it was the first ever trip outside their villages and they enjoyed the exposure of a new place, learning and experiencing new things. The trip proved to be educative, entertaining and helped foster team spirit among the students. The donations received from individual contributors made this trip possible for students who thoroughly enjoyed the day's outing.
