  • Three of our teachers have completed training under the Montessori system. Montessori’s byword is “Learningis best achieved by activity and had to be Fun”. Activity – actually doing it yourself – leads to comprehension, rather than struggling to remember what has been said.
    There will eventually be four  specialist teachers in the Montessori section who will each be nominally in charge of a class, and they will take that class into grade 1 CBSE of primary school, so as to lessen the effect of the step change of learning system.


    As at January 2012 we have three specialist teachers; in Music we are on the look out for a teacher after Mukesh (our former Music Teacher) left us, in PE/sport we have Chandan, and in Art, Lajwanti who now mixes Montessori  and Art . The village pot maker and carpenter also fill in as part timers for teaching their craft to the children.
    To accommodate the great disparity of ability, and the brighter children being held back by the slower ones, in April 2011 we started an A-stream system wherein the five or so brightest in tens and nines join up for accelerated maths and English. We shall watch this closely to see if the numbers in the class are right. We hope to ensure that those who deserve a shot at university get the opportunity.

    5. 5. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School Why a School and Why a Private one? • B E T has set out to give every child in the three villages of Baas, Gairatpur Baas and Khera Pandala, an education similar to that which politicians, and affluent classes insist upon for their children. • Too many teachers in the state sector are not properly trained; and many don’t even turn up at school. • B E T went for a private school to ensure good quality teaching. • To ensure full commitment, teachers have to live on site. In return, we look after them. ,
    6. 6. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY • Our focus is on building character and self-esteem. • We are an English medium school - all teaching (except Hindi lessons) is done in English – this will get them a better job. • Maths, English, Music, Art and Sport are our five main targets, giving our children a firm base of literacy, numeracy and character. • MMI (Modern Montessori International) train our teachers. We have the nursery element (3s, 4s and 5s) under the Montessori system, in order to launch them into learning by activity – not blackboard. • iDiscoveri has been adopted as the Primary and Secondary school system because it improves productivity by making life easier for the teachers in the classroom. It partners with schools across the country to raise the bar of how children learn and how teachers teach, through usage of day work books which encompass the curriculum based on CBSE. It also gives on- site leadership to teachers on how to present topics in an interesting way. Four teachers have done their training. In a recent test we are slightly above national average in English.
    7. 7. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School INTERACTING GLOBALLY • On leaving school in Britain, numbers of children take a (gap) year off, before university. Such “Gappers” work unpaid for two or three months, often In the Montessori section - the engine room for learning English and starting to build character. This arrangement has helped staff and students to widen their horizons. • We have a warm and close relationship with St Michael’s Primary School in Aldbourne, UK. Our Head-mistress visited that school in the summer 2011 to observe their teaching methodologies. Students of both schools interact by post to share ideas, to make friends and to have a better understanding of each others’ worlds. Our Music teacher (former) Mukesh conducts the British Army Band while the children and Teachers listen. The RAF band is coming to play in the School on 29th February 2012.
    8. 8. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School TEACHERS • We plan to grow by one class per annum until our eldest are aged 16. Thus we need more teachers in years to come, and those with greater expertise in wider traditional areas, like geography, history , science and chemistry will have to be recruited. • Teachers are encouraged to (and most do) live on site in spacious accommodation to reflect the high esteem in which we hold their profession, and in order better to fulfil our requirement for them to be intellectual, social and moral role models not only in school, but within the village. • As a responsible employer we offered to introduce P.F. in 2010 but the teachers rejected it, preferring cash to PF. • We now have our teachers believing that their purpose is "to prepare children for life" and that "the only exam that really matters is life itself".
    9. 9. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School WHERE IS THE SCHOOL LOCATED? • We are about fifteen Kilometres south of Gurgaon and about 50 Kms south of the centre of Delhi. • The school lies on village common land which has formally been nominated under Panchayat Resolution for 33 years for this educational purpose. In that resolution it was stated that as we build the buildings they are given to the panchayat, and further, that in perpetuity, the management and development of the school is devolved upon the Baas Educational Trust. Dr. Mohini Daljeet Singh, Chairperson, Max Healthcare Foundation addresses the school on the Annual day function on 2nd December 2011.
    10. 10. Location
    11. 11. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School Health and Environment We also serve two fruits and a glass of milk to children during the day. On Fridays, as a measure of equality and inculcating a team sprit amongst the children, a communal lunch is arranged for the schoolchildren. This is specifically done to mitigate the endemic deficiency of Iron, Iodine and Vitamin A in the children’s meals. Iodine deficiency results in deficient learning capabilities, Iron deficiency in children being anaemic and Vitamin A deficiency effects vision. Lack of funds prevent our serving such mid day meals every day. Max Healthcare conducts child health checks starting from August 2011.
    12. 12. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School CHALLENGES Teachers - Being in a rural area we have difficulty in attracting teachers, because it is a sad fact that in India teachers and doctors much prefer to work in cities; moreover, we cannot match the State School salary scales. However we have managed so far, and once in, our teachers take readily to our liberal methodology and the enthusiasm it engenders in the children. We have a mix of locals and inductees from Jharkhand and Bihar. Replacing our Music Teacher, who left for better pay in Gurgaon, is proving difficult. We are abundantly aware that we need quality teachers who can extract the best out of iDiscoveri and Montessori frameworks with vision and energy. We are in the process of Registering the school in order to come under RTE 2009 for some funding, under which every child, aged 6-14 years, in a state or a non-profit NGO school, will be provided education at State expense. FCRA - As shown in the next slide, we depend to a large extent on FCRA imported funds- 53% for year ended 2011, and that is a tedious and a lengthy process. Having completed the statutory three years, we have now applied for a permanent clearance. BUT we still need to develop indigenous sources of funding to cover children outside that age group and for building and equipping costs.

    14. 14. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School PRESENT FUNDING 1. School Fees (Monthly) - are banded according to ability to pay - Rs 50, 150 or 250. At present fees pay of one teacher out of 11. 2. Rupees Donations from guests passing through Tikli Bottom Guest House. 3. Foreign Currency Donations to Esther Benjamins Trust in UK where Gift Aid is added and are then transmitted to India through FCRA channel. 4. Rupee Donations From Indians - general donations or specific to support teachers' salaries (Rs 1,20, 000 p a recurring). We have six such donors. Drawbacks Present funding system is erratic as we are heavily dependent on FCRA funds. We need to raise funds for Revenue Expenditure envisaged Future Revenue - Rs 70 lacs per annum and Future Capital Expenditure amounting to Rs 70 lacs over the next five years. To bring in stability we need to start a corpus of 5-7 Crores to generate future income The Trustees have enough expertise to invest funds to provide income.
    15. 15. Baas Educational Trust Managing Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School FUTURE PLANS & DETAILED FUNDING NEEDS. Buildings Required – 5 Classrooms, 1 residence for 4 teachers, a shallow summer splash pool, a school assembly hall cum village community hall incorporating a medical centre for general village use (with Max Healthcare Foundation assistance), a science laboratory and a computer centre. As our eldest approach age 16, we shall address the vocational training needs which will either be accommodated in existing rooms or may need new space. We shall press local industry to offer apprenticeships. Dreams unfulfilled….. nutritious Mid day meals for kids, State level Salary scales for teachers…….For all this we need funds. You are most welcome to visit us and judge for yourself if we are worthy of your nurturing hand.
