Sarberia India update March 2019

The great results of class X are convincing parents to leave their children at the NLC. It has been a challenge to keep the higher classes at the New Life Centre school for the Board Exams at age 16. Parents are often enticed by the Government school locally with the promise of a bicycle for the boys and money for a dowry for the girls. Consequently they are reluctant to take a chance on the NLC and prefer to take their children to the Government school despite the shocking statistics of failure rates there. In 2017, 2 students left in year IX to go to the Government school and did badly compared to those at the NLC. News travels fast in a village, and more parents are now leaving their children at the NLC for the Board exam. This bodes well for when Alindra will apply for Senior Secondary status as there will be a good number to move into the Sixth form. Class X pictured above scored excellent results in the December mocks. NLC students were in the top 20 out of 92 students who were sitting the exams in a local centre. The girls in the photo scored 80% on average. Pinky who is standing next to Alindra (front left), embodies the success Alindra imagined when he opened the school in 2005. The daughter of manual workers, Pinky is destined for a sixth form locally and then University. When we asked her in February 2018 what she would like to do as a career she replied ‘a teacher’. This is achievable thanks to the NLC and your support.
