And this year it is even more special as our girl students have continued to make the school and their community proud with their outstanding performance in CBSE board examination. I would like to congratulate the students and teachers for the successful outcome and thank the community and Government of Punjab for consistently supporting and motivating our schools.”
Satya Bharti School children come from marginalized communities and their achievements especially that of girls are special to the surrounding communities. Considering the fact that most of these students have withstood various social and economic pressures but despite the adversities, the children have proved their potential in the board examination. It is a dream come true to most of them and their family members as they stand as exemplars in the community.
These Schools provide opportunities for holistic development of children in rural India. The school curriculum has been designed weaving in innovative teaching methodologies for effective understanding of concepts by the children. Both classroom as well as out-of-class activities encompass interventions that help students develop attitudes, values and skills for life. While innovative Teaching Learning Material (TLM) enhances the classroom experience, special programs like The Physical Education Curriculum (PEC) makes the outdoor learning more meaningful along with computer aided learning, digital classrooms and advanced technology labs. Currently 173 Satya Bharti Schools are operational across the villages of Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Of the 173 schools, five schools are senior secondary schools run in public private partnership mode under Punjab Government’s Adarsh Scheme.
