August-September 2017

Every year on 5th September, India celebrates Teachers Day. It is celebrated to mark the
contribution made by the teachers to the society. It is the birth anniversary of Doctor
Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, scholar, president
of India and a teacher. In Naveen School, the day was celebrated with so much vigor
and enthusiasm. The students were told about the significance of this day in the form of
stories. A small fun activity for students was organized by the school wherein the
students from class nursery to 3rd grade had to draw and paint and 4th -5th-grade
Students had to write about what they want to become when they grow up. Post this
activity, the teachers put on some music and the children danced and enjoyed. Also,
food stalls were put up where teachers made golgappas and jhal mudi (Indian snacks)
and students were seen enjoying those delicious items. The students and teachers
bonded really well and had a great time.

On Eid, an important Muslim festival which took place in the beginning of September,
was observed as a school holiday.

Other than this celebration, regular school activities are taking place. Examination
papers have been made and gone for printing. The teachers are completing the course
for the mid-term examination and also starting with the revisions soon. The
examinations will begin from 7th October. The students are also very excited about the
upcoming festivals Dussera and Navratra.

The extreme humid temperature was taking a toll and we decided to change the fans of
two of our classrooms which were old. We replaced them with new fans which brought
in a lot of respite to the students. Thanks to available funds we could acquire a new
inverter, an electricity producing device for time periods where electricity from the
municipality is not available.

Our organization is looking for an English teacher for our primary classes 1st-5th grade.
Please let us know if you know anyone who could help us. We also welcome
volunteers!
We would also love to know if anyone could teach the students Qi Gong or Knitting.
We would already like to inform you that we are indenting to change the corrugated iron
roof of about 6 classrooms to replace it with a cemented roof. The base of the building
will have to be stabilized as well in this process. We would be very grateful for any
support in this.
We will get back to you with more updates about it.

If you have been following our blogs and would want to know anything particular about
the school or activities happening around there, do write to us on office@widervision.org
It would be great to hear from you!
