Every student enrolled in Junior College is on the cusp of life and thinking about their higher education and the world beyond their college walls. Employment and financial security is a goal they all aspire towards. Therefore the Junior College conducts discussions and debates on relevant topics in order to cultivate students’ analytical and thinking skills. Learning to engage with the world in more meaningful ways goes beyond merely doing well in job interviews. Thinking clearly, articulating an opinion, disagreeing gracefully, healthy competition are life skills that will always serve them well.
It is a known fact that a typical learner learns better visually. Combine that with listening, experiencing and discussing and we have a high impact, enriched class! Creative story telling via theatre techniques is what students in Redlawada decided to employ in the tradition of ‘Burrakatha’. The technique consists of folk stories and songs with 3 performers, originally a narrative entertainment tradition of nomads. When brought to the classroom, classes come alive with acting, singing and learning relevant traditional stories. RDF schools are encouraging students to engage with their culture and history and understanding their contemporary relevance too. Here’s to Educate, Engage and Empower!
Matendla School alum, K. Raju showed his deep appreciation for the years he studies there as a child, yearning for a better life through education. Now in his final year to complete a Bachelors in Science in Sri Vidya Degree College, Siddipet, Raju and his friend often discussed the dilemma of good education in rural areas and how they can help. For RDF schools that rely on charitable individuals and organization, no help is too small and Raju knew this. Together with his friends, they collected Rs. 3000 and bough a rack for the Science Lab. The Principal and Lecturers too supported this endeavour and pitched in. On Republic Day, the group of friends, Principal and Director presented the rack to the Headmaster. They also conducted a GK Competition and distributed prizes. The RDF family is touched by his generosity and is proud to have inspired the students to give back. They are assets to Indian society!
