Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA)
Format of the Success Stories / Best Practices under Media – Communuication Activity
1. Name of the school/ AIE Centre /EGS:
GOVERNMENT PRIMARY SCHOOL LOHARLI
BLOCK- BIJHARI, DISTT. HAMIRPUR (H.P.)
PIN 176039 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Scenario before media activity undertaken:
The institutional setup of G.P.S. Loharli had some lacks as the students were deprived of the basic infrastructure needed according to the needs of modern classroom and educational activities as fancy dress competition, co- curricular activities etc were not getting momentum. The level of students’ participation in such activities was not upto the mark of quality. Hence, myself Vijay Kumar Heer realized these problems when I joined in G.P.S. Loharli after being transferred from my last school G.P.S. Loharli in January 2009. The cleaniness of students, uniform wearing regularity etc. were also not in momentum .
3.Media strategies utilized and its process:
To improve the classroom teaching, I inspired Shri Padamnabh Sharma C.H.T. to help the school by donating a computer, printer, tables for classrooms and desks for class 1st and 2nd as other classes had already desks. He himself donated these items on his retirement on 31-08-2010 publically. The news was highlighted in media too for motivating the retired C.H.T. As computer was donated, I made many formats of daks often made by teachers which create hindrance in classroom teaching. Secondly, I made biggest digital and multimedia library of e books and educational CDs and softwares in Himachal Pradesh at Primary Level ( As I claim and can prove).Then , basics of computer were introduced by me and theory of computer was also introduced by writing it in hindi and children wrote it in their copies. The practice session of computer is running nowadays. Fancy dress competition, best handwriting competition, drawing competition, Drama , Sanitation Campaign, Group Song and Group Dance etc. are the activities which I commenced here per month and got positive results. The official work of the centre has been computerized by me and teachers are now tension free about clerical work. They teach in classroom full day and outcome of students has improved. Educational CDs on all subjects have made a good impact on the knowledge of the students. I used my own laptop in the first floor based classrooms of class 3rd, 4th, 5th and for class 1st and 2nd, I used Desktop donated by C.H.T. in the ground floor based classrooms. Being incharge of SSA in the school, I hired a painter and prepared two classrooms for class 1st and 2nd showing maximum content of textbooks on the walls.
3. Impact of the media strategies: As often the local people who always had a cry that they will shift the children to private schools has muted itself after the work. Classroom efficiency of teachers has increased and community has increased its co- operation. Students have now good level of self – confidence and exposure. They are getting extrovert in nature.The classroom environment has become interesting due to the use of Computer , especially through CDs shown to them. The attendance and stagnation rate has improved.
4. Improvement in enrolment / retention and overall education level of the children in the surrounding area and awareness of the community( Not to be limited to such cases only)
It has shown the result that many children who were recognized at nothing level in Aadhar Programme have now improved in scholastic and co – scholastic achievement. Many students want to learn more about computer. No student has taken S.L.C. after commencement of the programme. Enrolment has also increased but not much in number because many parents admit their child in the beginning of session than in mid of the session. Albeit, it will attract people as we are introducing computer education camp for students in March 2010 which will give them full time education and practice of computer. Separate periods for computer have done good job. As local panchayat pradhan Suresh Chaudhary has done co-operation, two rooms and a boundary wall has been sanctioned for our school recently albeit we have already 5 classrooms and a room for office but these rooms will be used as computer lab and T.L.M. room. The library will be shifted in this room for ideal atmosphere of studying books.
