“School bells are loud and clear, let the walls make the talk”
School is a place that has moulded million minds, school, a place that connects everyone (Education marks the overall development of a child). Child’s development is determined by the quality of education and this quality depends on basic infrastructure of the school, its atmosphere, ambience, amenities, availability of teachers, proper sanitation etc.
Government schools were established to provide necessary amenities to the children but, nowadays because of the negligence from the policy makers, authorities it is at the verge of losing down, reasons being poor infrastructure, lack of accountability and efficient teachers, decrease in enrollment ratio and increase in drop out ratio. “School bell” was an initiative to rejuvenate government schools at the verge of shutting down. Campus 2 Community with the association of Art Matters and Students for Development organised School Bell Campaign.
Through School bell, volunteers added life to the walls of school. This created a positive learning atmosphere, an ambience for acquiring knowledge. The other motto of school bell was to bridge the existing gap between campuses (Students) and society(school). It is every student’s responsibility to leave behind a path that will brighten the future of next generations.
Through School bell, one will engage oneself in the practices that will benefit the community, managerial skills, interactions, leadership qualities are some of the finest skills one can acquire. Improved infrastructure can make school a friendlier space where teachers and children get an environment to learn more. Further when children will be able to learn from their surroundings, they will perform better. The intervention also aims to work with teachers to bring in motivation among them and bring in new innovative ways to involve children in activities that further improvement. Not just the school environment was improved but, school children were provided with necessary science kits, sports kits library and first aid kits.
