If you are wondering where this school is, it’s right in our very own Andhra Pradesh! It is situated at Mangampet in Kadapa district. Mangampet is famous for its rich Barytes mines. Many villagers from Mangampet work in these mines and APMDC (Andhra Pradesh Mineral Development Corporation) is getting benefitted by the resources and workers there.
A school built in 3 acres of land and 5.5 crores expenditure
A 3-storey building for the school was built with a vast playground and greenery around. First preference for enrollment is given to the mine worker’s kids and later to the kids from danger zone areas nearby. This school offers primary education i.e., 1-6 classes.
Computer Labs, Libraries, Clean washrooms & distilled drinking water
To impart computer education at an elementary level, computer labs are built. A good collection of informative and storybooks is made available for kids at the library.
Teaching in small groups
Facilities for Extra Curricular activities
Children here are encouraged to play sports, learn music, dance, painting etc. Training facilities for various fine arts are also present. Many of them gave achieved medals in various state/district level competitions.
Very Minimal Fee & Free School buses.
For the first one year of the school establishment, kids are taught for free. No fees. From next year, they have to pay a very minimum affordable fee. For the kids coming from nearby villages, free school buses are arranged.
At present 504 kids have enrolled in this school. Hope many such schools come up for the welfare of the children from villages.
