Students learn and play at the same time
The DIL Jabri School showed tremendous progress in the second quarter of 2013. The teachers are cooperating with each other and the Principal. There is a lot of improvement in the discipline of the students, cleanliness, and punctuality. The principal does not let any teacher take a class without a lesson plan in place for the day. During school visits it was observed that cupboards are well maintained, seating arrangements have improved a lot, the displays on the soft boards are well-maintained according to the guidelines provided and the notice board in the principal's office displays all the required information for the parents and teachers.
Two of the best teachers of the school resigned as both of them had to move with their husbands to Peshawar and Karachi respectively. It is difficult to find a good teachers due to low literacy rate in females of this area as there are no girls schools in the area. The newly-appointed teachers have been given full support and proper guidelines before they could start teaching.
The newly-hired KG teacher received training on how to manage her class as did the new English teacher. The Urdu, Science and Math teachers are using the training sessions effectively. They are improving their teaching day by day which is benefitting the students. These teachers are using the teaching material, charts and reference books properly. For example, the Math teacher is using hands on activity to teach addition and subtraction.
Jabri students are using the library very well. The students are allowed to take books home. Teachers take the students to library according to their time table, and help them to develop good reading habits.
Favorite Fruit Day was observed in the school in order to bring in awareness among the students of good eating habits. It was well conducted activity. Students were asked to bring a fruit of the season. They brought different summer fruits available in the market. The teachers arranged the fruits and then briefed about the names, taste and how they are useful. Variety of fruits was arranged on the tables and then students enjoyed eating those fruits also. The children enjoyed the activity and at the same time learnt to share with each other.
