Back to School

Fortunately the Govt is getting organised off late. http://www.schooleducation.kar.nic.in/ gives a lot of statistics on education in Karnataka. There are about 51,000 govt. schools in Karnataka and over 1300 in Bangalore URBAN itself !!!

Also find lot of good statistics on http://www.azimpremjifoundation.org/html/statistics.htm There are many more such useful links - don't want to cram too much info here.

Check out the School search links on the Kar.nic.in site and try to find your schools -

Our Belur Nagasandra school is represented as GLPS Chalgatta at http://www.schooleducation.kar.nic.in/SchoolSearch/pssearch.asp

I'll upload some other important files on the egroup soon.

Our School

Yes, itz our school.

The little school beyond Bangalore Airport. Its called the Bellur-Nagasandra Govt. Primary school. It has very bright & cheerful kids. First std to fifth std. Around 40+ totally. And, also an anganwaadi (creche) for the babies ;-))

What I really love 'bout this school is the numbers.....almost single digit kids in each class.....and that means soon you get to know ALL the kids.....and that you can teach ALL the kids............wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A lot of DSF volunteers reading this would surely feel envious of us ;-))

Yes, now the challenge is to make this school, a wonderful place for education.

Dream School Foundation has adopted this school, and Santosh Kumar & Preethi Ramesh have been the prime numbers ;-)

We would like to see a whole lot of volunteers coming in, and contributing.

We visit the school on saturday mornings.

Interested, dash us a mail or write to our DSF boss Mrs Maitreyee.
