Karnataka: Every child at this govt school celebrated Independence Day at home | Mangaluru News – Times of India


MANGALURU: Teachers from the Government Higher Primary School, Nallur in Karkala ensured that every child enrolled in this school celebrated Independence Day at home. Nagesha, the headmaster said, “We were inspired to involve the students more systematically and purposefully following the TOI report.”
TOI recently reported how this school rings the bell every day for students to study at home.
“Since the school is located in an elevated area, we bought a new mike set, and the horn speaker is tied to a mango tree and now we not only ring the school bell every day but also conduct an assembly. At least 75-90 students can listen to the school assembly and participate in it from their homes,” he said.
On the occasion of Independence Day, we requested parents to purchase a cloth/paper flag and to distribute sweets in their homes after the celebration. Students were asked to wear their white uniform. “We were surprised that most students hoisted the national tricolour and shared pictures on the school’s Whatsapp group. I am thrilled at the response,” he said.
The school also organised a formal function at the campus attended by all the seven teachers, including the headmaster along with Dr Rajesh and Dr Prashanth, alumni of the school, businessmen Bhaskar Shetty and Sathish Shetty, SDMC president Umanath and a few localites.
It has been a week since the school started organising regular morning assembly that also allows the children to speak through their mobile phones. Every day, a child gets an opportunity to make a presentation and introduce a book that the he/she has read — lessons learnt from it, what he/she liked about it and where it is available.
Under the government’s Vidyagama programme, teachers are conducting ‘Vatara shale’ in eight places. Students in small groups are introduced to a competency bridge course held between 9.30am to 12.30pm every day. The school’s current student strength is 123 (Class 1 to 7).
