Quarterly Update

By Evalin Christabel | Project Head - Ashraya

Dear Friends and Supporters of Ashraya,

With the onset of winter Neelbagh School has been in full swing, throughout this quarter, with the active, energetic events round the clock.  On 2nd October Gandhi Jayanthi was celebrated.  The hostel students and staff did SHRAMADANA for about 4-5 hours; together they uprooted weeds and widened roads close to the school campus and in the evening cultural programs were organised.

The 3rd semester exams were held in the first week of October. The progress reports were handed over on the 9th October. Every extra hour of studies put in for the exams were rewarded with Dasara vacation break of 10days from October 10th – October 20th. The School reopened on 21st October and the campus was bustling with activity, as the teachers and children got back to their schedules.

PTA with Grade 10 students was held along with their parents in order to motivate them to work hard for the final SSLC exams. The students were given a time table to follow during the Dasera holidays and the parents were informed about their schedule so that they can  enforce it in their homes.

On the academic front, the senior (10th grade) students have been busy preparing for the preparatory exams in January and remedial classes are being conducted after regular school hours to help students with difficult subjects. Teachers spend time after school hours to help slow learners. Day scholars of 10th Grade joined the boarding in early January to benefit from special classes. Children are seen studying very hard for the upcoming final exams in January and March.

The New Year's eve was celebrated with great pomp and show. The evening had special cultural programmes such as singing, dance and drama by our talented children. They enjoyed themselves and welcomed the New Year with great enthusiasm. Statehood day was celebrated on 1st of November. Children’s day was celebrated on 14th November.

This change has created ripples in the student and teacher communities. We at Neelbagh are focusing more on teacher training and holding talks with a few institutes to provide extensive residential on-site training with practical inputs to our teachers. At Neelbagh we are also proposing to conduct a Bridge course for SSLC (10th Standard) as students are bound to face some hardship and pressure while switching over to the CBSE syllabus. .

The School continues to provide opportunities to underprivileged children from poor and marginalized communities. Out of a total of 372 children studying at Neelbagh out of which 89 are construction labourers children, 8 are single parent children, 73 are daily wagers children, 6 auto drivers children and 14 are poor farmers children.   . The total hostel strength is now, 100 children. All children from grade 1-10 i.e. a total of 306 children attend computer and pottery training classes and from High School (Grade 6- 10) 80 boys attend carpentry and 69 girls attend tailoring classes.

On behalf of the entire Ashraya staff and Board Members I would like to thank you for your support. Your support and positive comments are the fuel that keeps us moving forward.

 

Appreciate all your support!

 

Thanks and Regards,
