The Ranjali School Building
The Ranjali School Building

DIL School Ranjal is located at Mangote Union Council, Rawalpindi. It is a middle school (Nursery-8) with an enrollment of 212 (145 girls and 67 boys) students.  There are 12 teachers and a dedicated principal. A Parent Teachers Association (PTA) with is also functional. 

The newly constructed building of the School campus was completed in the 1st week of January 2013. The expected completion date of the building was November 2012, but it took 2 more months to be completed.  

It is a double story building with a large play area. The building has the following facilities:

  • 12 classrooms
  • Principal office with attached washroom
  • Staff room with attached washroom
  • Clerk office and store
  • Dedicated Library 
  • Dedicated room for computer lab 
  • Six washrooms (3 for boys and 3 for girls)
  • Small Kitchen 
  • 2 terraces  
  • Play Area with boundary wall

The community has been active in installing electric meter in the school. All the electric work and appliances have been installed. The school was shifted to the new building on the 7th of January, 2013. 

On the occasion of opening of the school a meeting was held with all the parents, community members, principal and teachers. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the parents about the facility in detail and also their role in maintenance and security of the school premises. 

The PTA members and parents thanked DIL for providing their children such a great opportunity of schooling facility. They assured their assistance and coordination in this regard. The PTA put forward its agenda for the next few months: 

  • School registration
  • Opening bank account for the school fee
  • Construction of pavement inside the school
  • Construction of drain outside the school for rain water coming out from the school building 
  • Fund raising for the school to fulfill the school requirement s other than what DIL provides
  • Plantation in the play area

Upgrading of the school up to level 10 has been recommended for 2013.  The program team will be working on implementation once the budget is approved.  Ranjali is the only elementary school in the area where poor girls get the opportunity of schooling. Otherwise their parents cannot afford to send them in any other school after grade 5. There is a dire need of upgrading the school up to grade 10.
