ANNUAL REPORT 2017-18
A very joyous welcome to our school in the beginning of 2018.Hope the past one and half month has been very good to you bringing with it a lot of promises for the future months.
The day has again arrived today for which the children were waiting with so much eagerness. It is the day of jubilation, fun, merrymaking and most importantly an occasion to show their talent in various fields, to all their well-wishers. To prove that they are not inferior to their counterparts in other privileged schools. We all, at Basundhara are deeply indebted to the august gathering assembled heretoday and to those residing in different parts of India and the world, for instilling in the children the much-neededconfidence, for giving them the courage to dream for a better life. Words here fail to express our feelings of gratitude properly. I hope the performance which the children are going to give today,in itself willsay, how much we owe to you. Because without your support and encouragement it couldn’t have been possible today. But there is a long path to traverse and the challenges are unknown. Hope your support, our effort and above all the Almighty’s abundant grace would enable us to meet and overcome all challenges along the way and lead us on the path of progress.
I know everyone here is now eager to watch the performance of the little fairies waiting there in the room and they on their part also are on the verge of jumping onto the stage at the slightest signal. But before that I shall request you to bear with me for a little longer while I would acquaint you with the activities of the academic year 2017 and 18.
Now in our school there are 60 children from Nursery to class VIII and all are the inmates of the hostel. We have no outside children. Among them 53 are girls and 7 are boys. In the mid-session, some 8 children were transferred to other homes due to the implementation of some new rules of the government. In the meantime, some other guardians have applied for the admission of their wards in the hostel. The process of scrutiny is going on. Besides this there are 3 tenth std. girls in Chauliaganja school who are now appearing in the school final exam. 2 ninth class girls are studying in Ratnakar Vidyamandir . 10 boys in ODM Public School and 5 girls in college. Now we have 8 teachers in the school and one Tution teacher for Maths to teach the ninth-class girls in the hostel. There are 4 teachers for yoga, music, tabla and drawing besides the headmistress who is in honorary basis. A girl from ‘Swadhar Home’ has been appointed as a peon. Last year 2 of our girls passed high school certificate examination in 3rd division from Chauliganjschool. Considering their low level of intelligence and grasping capacity we felt happy for them in spite of their miserable result. The assurance was that, at least they passed Matriculation! God willing and if their will power can be boosted up they can achieve something in life. Now they are continuing in the college inthe vocational stream.
