Regards from Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch!
The festive seasons has just begun, the villages are covered with the lights and children are busy with sweets and crackers. The first term examination is also completed and vacation has started so there is not worries for children to enjoy the vacation and festivals.
In this season of festival our Para Teacher will be celebrating Diwali with the children in the villages only. Most of our Para Teachers are from the same village where they are teaching. But as a Para Teachers it will be their first Diwali. At GVT we have organized a celebration cum learning module where children will come and enjoy the learning experience with different celebrations. It will not be much load for the children as the break is needed.
GVT has observed that after the Diwali or Summer break most of the children do not able to remember the learnings which have taught to them. They just forget it and teachers need to re-teach some of the lessons to remember the earlier teachings. It becomes difficult for the teachers as they have to put extra efforts and time for it.
The Para Teachers will support the students of class 3 to 8 to bridge the gap, which will help both the teachers as well as students. After the Diwali, our Para Teachers will spend one hour everyday with the students and will organize different games and spend some time for the teaching learning. It will be done in the school campus only. GVT has also planned to engage parents in such activities to build their understanding about the importance of learning. The parents will support in cleaning the school, sending their children with Para Teachers for study, help children in sitting at home for some time for reading or writing.
The simple steps in encouraging children and parents will mark some change for the bright future at large. Let us come together to educate the nation. Also let us make more leaders of tomorrow for the bright India
