The grounds of RDF Redlawada school is a wonderful sight in the evenings. The children have not gone home. School bags are kept aside and they are playing Kho Kho, Volleyball, and Kabbadi. The games are played in the right spirit. What a healthy way to end the day!
While it is all good fun, there are some who take their sport more seriously than the others. Two of them, M Mahesh and M Praveen have trained hard to make their game perfect. And their efforts have been recognized. The boys have been selected for the State Sports School. They may even make a career in sports. What a change it can bring to their life !
They say all work and no play makes a child dull and listless. At RDF Redlawada, sports and games are given as much importance as academics. And it is no wonder that the children here are bright, active and cheerful.

Students of Class 8 were taken on a field trip to study a few aspects of Biodiversity. In their Biology class the students were informed about the common causes of soil pollution and its effect on biodiversity. The field trip was to create an awareness and give them a hands-on experience thus reinforcing the classroom study. They compared the soil of a farm, agriculture land, and a garden. By checking the humus they noted the properties of the soil, understood the role of insects and earthworms in its production. They were able to relate to the use of chemicals and pesticides and the effect it had in the humus content of various soils. The students suggested that the farmers use bio-fertilizers and pesticides that would not harm the eco-system and thereby reduce soil contamination.
Shiva Raj hails from a middle class farming family in Nallabelli, a small hamlet near Wadlakonda. He is studying at the RDF Rollakal school. He loves to play Volley Ball. Unlike his peers, Shiva excels both in studies and sports. He is the youngest player in the team of high school students, and shows the same spirit and enthusiasm while playing the game. All the students and teachers are amazed by his energy and interest in the sport.
Good luck to Shiva for a bright future.
RDF School, Kalleda celebrated the 66th Republic Day of our country in a special manner. The chief guest was the local shepherd Sri Dadi Venkatiah. The students presented a guard of honour, after which Sri Venkatiah hoisted the flag. The school conducted various sports and games as part of the celebrations. The Head Master presided over the event and then requested the chief guest to deliver a speech. Sri Dadi Venkatiah, dressed in his traditional attire, talked about his occupation. He advised the children to develop moral values and respect the elders. He was touched by the honour bestowed upon him by the school. He said it was a proud moment to have hoisted the flag. The children also were given to understand that there is dignity of labour whatever may be the occupation. He later distributed the prizes to the winners of various events.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them!
