Shiva’s salute to RDF!

Shiva has been with RDF Rollakal School for 8 years, having joined the school in Class 2. Shiva joined RDF Rollakal in 2nd grade. Shiva and his younger brother both study in RDF Rollakal School. He has 2 cousins who are studying in RDF Kalleda. In his opinion, the school in Kalleda is very big and beautiful. He likes the archery field and playground in Kalleda. In his own school, he is very fond of the school’s setting in a natural and green habitat and the dining hall.

ros-shivaHe enjoys coming to school every day even though it is a 1.5 km walk from the neighbouring village. In his free time, he likes to play with his friends. All his friends study in private schools. Shiva feels privileged to be in an RDF school as he says that private schools in the area do not offer lunch nor encourage sports. He says due to the high level of exposure to various educational and extracurricular activities, he has developed many skills which will help him in his future career and life. He has participated in essay competitions through the school. He has also participated in the GE summer program in Hyderabad. During the program, he attended classes in Global Edge School.

It was because of the school that he inculcated the habit of reading a newspaper. The school gets both Telugu and English news papers. The Telugu paper has local district news where as the English paper has news from all over the world. In today’s times, he feels it is important to know what is happening in the world. For example, the news of demonetization of 500/- and 1000/- rupee notes was conveyed to his parents by him. He reads the paper and shares information about any government related policy or schemes with them. His parents are both agricultural labourers and not educated. They want him to study well and can afford his higher education provided he gets a merit seat.

Since he wants to pursue Engineering, he feels that the encouragement towards reading on a wide range of topics and understanding English, as developed in the school, will help him in cracking entrance examinations in future. Another important factor for cracking exams is the knowledge of English language since the entrance exams are conducted in English. According to teachers, he is a very hard working and bright child. Given his levels of dedication and hard work, he shouldn’t find it difficult to fulfil his ambition.

We wish him all the best for future endeavours.
