      Natco School of Learning - Gollamudipadu Village, Ponnur Mandal, Guntur District.

      Natco Trust has initiated the setting up of Natco School of Learning (an English Medium School), at Gollamudipadu

      village, Ponnur Mandal of Guntur District during the financial year, 2011-12, with

      an objective of providing good education to the local community and to many of

      the surrounding village children.

      This School has been set up with well-established infrastructural facilities with

      gardening and landscaping, well-trained teaching staff, x-seed idiscoveri

      methodology and activity based learning. It is also facilitated with good transport system and well-equipped library Computer

      Lab and Science lab etc.

      Though the school started with strength of 156 students for the year 2011-12, it has increased to 264 students for the year

      2012-13 academic years. The school got recognized by the state

      government of Andhra Pradesh and affiliated to central board of secondary

      education, New Delhi. Free education extended to 32% of the students

      and subsidized education provided to 6% of the students for the academic

      year.

      Most of the children at NSL are from Telugu Medium background, with minimum parental support with regard to their

      academics. But, on observing over a period of two years, we could find that there is remarkable development in their

      creativity, thinking, interpretational and illustrative skills, helping them grow independent at each level, which are encouraged

      through various activities and tasks assigned from time to time in different subjects. Children of Grade 4 to 8 can confidently

       

      interview an individual while a grade 1 or 2 student may be able to relate

      his learning on Additions, or Sizes to the environment and respond to a

      project work like accounting for the different books in their bag, or types of

      furniture in different classes as well.

      Yet, there is consistent and continuing effort to enhance their thinking,

      reading and writing skills further by our teachers through the curriculum

      and activities planned from time to time ensuring that they can always,

      "THINK OUT OF THE BOX " through their learning process,,.

      Academic activities - The X-Seed curriculum was implemented in order to

      provide quality education to the students of Natco School of Learning. In order to check students understanding levels

      Learnometer tests were conducted. In order to induce pupils into 'Learning by doing' various project works were entrusted

      to them based on reasoning, application, analysis and comprehension. First hand experience / direct experience to students

      was given through field trips.

      Natco High School, Rangapur, Kothur Mandal, Mahaboobnagar district

      Natco High School was established in the year 1995 under the Natco Trust, to facilitate education in the surrounding

      villages and also to the employee children of Natco Pharma Ltd. Though

      the school started with strength of 77 students, 10 rooms and 10 staff

      members in 1995 by 2012-13 it has increased to 1346 students, The

      objective behind establishing the school remained to impart quality

      education with free and subsidized fees.

      The implementation of activity based and hands on learning has brought

      a broad outlook for the students and increased their thinking skills and

      interpretation skills. Unlike every year we have seen a tremendous

      improvement in the way students interpret what they are learning, the

      way they express their

      feelings and opinions. Teachers were continuously supported with different

      training programmes to meet the demand of the class room. The academic

      achievements include 100% result in grade X board exams as well as

      99% results in internal exams from LKG to Gr. IX. External exams were

      also introduced and students from gr 4 to 9 have bagged gold, silver and

      bronze medals in international math and science Olympiads To improve the co-curricular and the extracurricular skills, students were made to participate in various competitions

      conducted in school as well as organizations like library associations of Shadnagar and Kothur. Kalabharathi Childrens Art

      Association, Chinni Chinni Asha, NICE foundation. Drawing, painting, elocution, essay writing, spell bee, fancy dress are

      behalf of Mahaboobnagar district. Girls' team bagged second place in district level Tchock ball championship. Hockey,

      volleyball and cricket sports teams are also formed and given training in school.

       In order to meet the requirement of the class rooms, management has decided to construct a new block of 9 class rooms

      and demolished the old construction and made a block of 6 class rooms with 1 multipurpose hall.

      There are many events which were celebrated in the school which included

      national festivals and other important festivals of our country. The major

      event of the year was "Natco's Prakruthi Utsav" which was a cultural show

      and nearly 900 students have participated on stage and 100 students

      have participated back stage.

      It was a learning which included planning of the event to logo designing, from understanding the theme to developing

      cultural shows related to the theme, designing of the stage to lighting and sound. Preparations of props and managing to

      Education activities at Nagarjuna Sagar, Nalagonda district

      AFTER SCHOOL TUTIONS for primary and high school students

      The objective: to inculcate the school going habit of among the children through activity based learning process amongst

      the students

      Introduction: It has been observed that dropping out of government schools, is rampant among children in the communities

      with which the Trust works. In most of the cases, children continue education till 2nd standard and drop out due to various

      reasons. This is because, in the absence of proper tutoring and coaching, children,

      who are mostly first-generation learners, find it difficult to cope with their syllabus

      and school environment.

      The Natco trust initiated the after school tuitions to 10 government schools students

      in the targeted villages at Peddavura Mandal of Nalagonda district. The emphasis has been put on inculcating activity

      based learning process in addition to the class room learning. The child has the

      freedom to explore and learn in joyful way. The teaching methodology adopted was

      Multi grade and multi level. About 270 students of the 670 enrolments in Government

      Primary schools are benefitting from this program. These students are also provided

      with Nutritious snacks regularly

      The syllabus has been progressing as per the content planned from time to time, level wise and an assessment using

      reading cards or written assessments are being held alternately in each centre. During this academic year, in Telugu apart

      from stressing on their ability to learn the basics thoroughly, stress was laid on grammar concepts, writing skills,

      comprehending skills, interpretational skills as well in a graded manner through the level wise laid down curriculum

      Various activities to enhance their speaking, reading and recitation skills are also being included in to the curriculum to make learning interesting and fun as well for the children, while it also fulfils the purpose of developing their spontaneity

      and involvement in subjects through the games and activities held.

      There has been significant improvement in the reduction of the Dropout rate at Government schools, because of "After

      School Tuitions program". While the reasons contributing to the drop outs were like, engaging children in household/farm

      works, remunerative cropping patterns affecting their regularity, non child centered system of teaching process in some

      cases, etc., The impetus through play way methods of teaching, congenial timings, parent interactions and involvement in

      the child's development, games and art activities included in syllabi, cards method of assessment, etc being provided

      through "After school tuitions" have been making notable impact on the increased rate of enrolment and attendance in the

      schools enhancing interest in learning.

       Pre -primary school - Thangalli thanda:

      The early childhood years are essential for the proper mental, physical, emotional and social development of the child. This

      lays the foundation for the child's future. Thus, it is very essential to provide children with quality pre-school education. It is

      with this objective that the Natco Trust has initiated pre primary school.

      Thangalli thanda is a rehabilitated village, consisting of 87 households belonging to Schedule tribal community. It has been

      earlier (palthi thanda) situated on the banks of Krishna River and very often inundated by the backwaters of river Krishna.

      The Trust has started a pre-primary school for the benefit of the children. The

      centre has 17 students in the age group of 3 to 5 years and they have been

      imparting activity based play way method learning. The Trust provided all teaching

      learning materials, play equipments, slates, and books; the center was taken care

      by a teacher and an ayah.

      A nutritious snack is provided daily to the children. In addition, efforts are made to

      develop the innate abilities of the children through activities like songs, games etc. The concerted efforts with this age

      group has helped in school-preparedness while also engaging parents in their ward's learning process

      During the academic year 2012-13, the school has 17 Children between the age group of 3 to 5 years getting benefit out of

      this program. They were provided with various learning experiences in Telugu, Math and Themes through different activities

      designed in thematic manner and with the implementation of Multi Grade Multi Level Methodology in teaching Telugu.

      The Learning system has been proving effective, in helping the child mould himself well with regard to his socio-emotional

      skills, by providing for inculcating good etiquette, habits and also self expression. The activity based system has been

      facilitating him to learn the concepts with a true relation to reality in life. Implementation of multi-grade-multi-level (MGML)

      methodology facilitating him ample space to learn at ease from multiple perspectives,

      the concepts in Telugu and Math, for example, once he/she learns a particular letter,

      he/she not only learns the usage and the pronunciation but also explores the

      environment to find words with that letter, similarly they learn math through

      manipulative activities and relevant story problems, games etc. . Ultimately, these

      children are able to stand out among the other entrants of Grade 1 students in

      Government schools,, in respect of their content knowledge, behavior and participation

      in the learning process.

      The involvement of the parents in the mid day meal preparation and updating of the learning levels of the child from time to

      time would slowly develop a sense of responsible attitude among the community people such that it sustains to a better

      extent in them to follow up their children's education.

      Children's Clubs: This has been motivated in Government schools, defining the purposes, forming groups and initiating

      activities in language clubs, cultural clubs, art clubs etc.

      striving to improve the cleanliness in the schools, soft board works and playing various

      activities etc. A rally was organized at Tangilla Tanda also by the BVK children to

      children and parents towards schooling

      Reading, Reading and sharing the summary of the content read to the peers etc and
