Here is the latest school report from the school that YOU helped build:

The Jabri School is progressing well and the staff is determined to improve the academic standards. Activities are arranged according to the annual activity calendar. For the morning assembly, teachers have been assigned duties, each class has to make a short presentation for creating awareness on the issues selected that the students present in group or individually.  

The school has an elected head girl and a head boy from the senior most class.These school representatives have been assigned duties, such as keeping the play areas clean and ensuring that lights are turned off after a class leaves for an activity. 

Earlier each classroom had charts pasted on the wall. These charts were removed and soft boards were fixed. The material on the soft boards includes diagrams, a word wall and students work.The teachers are giving tehs students a chance to the child to come up with their own ideas and discuss. During the class, proper guidance and instructions are being given to the students. Earlier the answers to questions were written on the board and the children would copy on their note books. The new practice is that the students are taught the concept and allowed time to respond in their own language instead of dictated sentences.

Miss Farzana Khan, the science teacher, believes in practical work for a better understanding of theory. Wen giving a lesson on the concept of solid, liquid and gas to Third Grade students, the teacher provided materials and explained the properties of these states. The teacher divided the class into three groups to work on each state assigned to them. Each group was asked to talk about the state after they had conducted the experiment. 

As an assignment the students were given the task to look around for more examples and bring it the next day for class discussion. This activity was useful and there was more clarity on the state of matter.

Similarly in English, to clear the concept of action words, the students of First & Second Grade were taken outdoors to work on action words. The teacher said the action word and the students were supposed to act and say the word like "stop", "jump", "walk", "run" and "sit". The students did it very well!
