Event Location: Baanur Government School

Event Description:We, Tablers from Chikmagalur Round Table, never thought the experience of visiting a rural government school would be the favourite part of being a tabler, until we completed a project at Baanur govt school and visited the school! The school in question is situated in a small village called Baanur, tucked halfway between Chikmagalur & Kadur. The school is nestled in between the vast expanses of coconut plantations. The premises is exceptionally clean & well maintained. The place has a really positive vibe about it that we seldom encounter in a government owned establishment. Close to 100 students, mostly from agrarian families study in this school.
Whenever we Chikmagalur Round Table donate a smart class, we are particularly interested if the school’s teaching staff know how to create the right content for the smart class teaching. When we put forth our concern, we were astonished to see how the teaching staff is already well versed in using smart class as one of the main arsenal in their teaching methods! Even before the inauguration event commenced, we realised that thanks to this school’s students, dedicated teaching staff & local trustees, this school is of a different calibre! at least when compared to many other government schools! With this grateful thought we started the inauguration ceremony.
The Event The event itself was a well organized one. Tr. Vinay from our table introduced round table organization to the students & the trustees present at the ceremony. He also informed the gathered about various round table charity activities including the ‘freedom through education’ initiative. He finished his speech with a note to students to pursue their dreams no matter how difficult it gets. A thunderous applause was in order. Various trustees also thanked the Chikmagalur Round Table for this wonderful initiative. We distributed sweets to the children. And the event continued into an informal interaction with the children. We learnt their views on education and how each individual student dreams of a different future. The event ended with a light snacking graciously organized by the school’s staff!
FELLOWSHIP We are forever thankful for the school’s trustees & teaching staff for giving us this opportunity and also for giving us this experience that we will never forget. We would also thank Darshan who introduced us to this fabulous school, without which we would never have come across this wonderful place.
