As part of Inventure Academy’s Community Outreach program, classroom furniture was provided to four Government Schools – The Govt. High School Attibele, Govt. Urdu Higher Primary School (GUPHS) Dommasandra, Govt. Model Primary High School (GMPHS) Domassandra, Govt. Model Primary Boys School (GMPBS) Sarjapur. 55 sets of desks and chairs, 50 tables and 120 chairs were distributed to these schools.
Bharti, a CRP of the Dommasandra Cluster, said, “ The children were delighted to have received these tables and chairs. They could barely wait for them to be set in the classrooms before claiming their own seats! We are extremely grateful for Inventure’s contribution.”
Inventure firmly believes in “being socially responsible citizens” (part of the school’s Core Purpose”). The school works closely with three of the Government Schools mentioned above with Grade 9 to 12 students spending a few hours each week helping students at these schools. They support the work of classroom teachers by working with students to reinforce previously taught literacy and numeracy concepts and skills. They also create resource materials for the students to use. The government school students also come to Inventure to use our Computer Lab facilities and receive on-site training.
GUPHS Dommasandra, in particular, is a school adopted by Inventure Academy. Proceeds from our Annual Production show held last year (8 lacs) was presented to the school towards the renovation of their school building.
Earlier this year, students of 12A led by Inventure’s Head Girl, Abhinithi Nalwad, organized an Eye Camp at the Government Model Primary Girls School.
The Community Outreach Program, part of Inventure’s Wider World program, ties in with the school’s Core Values of ‘Encouraging Sensitivity’ and ‘Providing Maximum Exposure’. An integral part of the students’ learning experiences, it helps contribute to their intellectual and social growth and development. It also provides a framework for students’ roles as members of the local community.
