A Special School Filled with Joy

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This quarter, we focused on health awareness and encouraged villagers to return their children to school. Before, villagers were not sending their children to school because of school fees. Now they have come to value education in Dhoker Jhara Village and are happy. A man named *Sahil came and talked to school authorities to talk about admission all by himself.

 

A humble initiative to provide a medium education on English to village children marked its beginning in the year 2015 in the form of Berean Public School, Dhoker Jhara. The school now goes on to start its fourth academic session, holding 130 students.

 

Berean Public School identifies itself as a school with a difference, not only with English as a means of communication, but also by emphasizing a child’s need for overall development. The children, before classes, are lined up in the courtyard for physical exercise and a few songs. Throughout the songs, one can hear the giggles and see smiles on the faces of the little ones.

 

The school also takes students under its wings by becoming a hostel after school hours. It provides the children with a caring and nourishing environment. They are taught the concept of responsibility with their daily chores to take care of their school and the neighbourhood they live in. The children develop a sense of belonging in this environment and find themselves right at home.

 

To realize and encourage the potential of each student is one of the school’s key focuses. The vision of a better future for the community is deeply rooted in the minds of the teachers, which urges them to pay careful attention to the development of each and every one of their students, helping them be the best they can be.
