Our school educates children from lower kinder-garden to class eight. Children follow the normal curriculum of academic studies as outlined by the state of Uttar Pradesh. The school consists of 30 disable children along with 170 normal children under the guidance of 12 staff members.
Every able children is eager to help out his or her disabled peer. Thus there is a lot of confidence in the disabled to face the outside world with courage. Here at Premjyoti, both disabled and able bodied students compete on equal terms whether it is academic, sport, dance, music or vocational skills.
This relates specifically to students suffering from mental retardation, cerebral palsy and hearing impairment. For them a special curriculum has been designed. A special educator helps them with academic basic skills such as personal hygiene, dressing, grooming, language skills, gardening, crafts, yoga, painting, etc.
Everyday after gardening they brush and bathe in the school. The special educator makes use of pictures, flashcards, live objects to impart knowledge to these special students. Unfortunately many of such persons suffer the fate of being hidden in dark corners by ashamed and ignorant families
We provide our students with the opportunity to learn different crafts to equip them with the skills to learn a living. At present they learn tailoring, embroidery, candle making, weaving, painting, book binding, typing, making cards, stuffed toys and gardening. We have a special tailoring class for disabled children.
A man is known by the company he keeps. and what best company he can have than that of good books? It is said that a good library is the heart of the school. Keeping all this in mind we have a small library with story books, comics, spiritual books, books of general knowledge, etc. Everyday students spend 45 minutes in the library.
Our students “Bal Manch” was established on March 8th 2005. It was formed by 14 of our Junior high-school students to help the widows and the old aged. Every month they give some money from their pocket and motivate other children to help them. They give out grains, medicine and cloths to old people.
