Panikhali School Plans
The first community where Calcutta Connect began working with PRDS in 2017 was in the village of Panikhali where we carried out repair works to the school building. The school building is a basic structure made from bamboo, wooden fence wall, thatched straw roof and a mud floor.
The school building is one single large room has served us well over the past two years but with the ever-growing numbers of students in our project it has become unfit for purpose due to lack of space, crowding inside is affecting the learning outcomes of the students. We now wish to build an entirely new concrete building here by maximising on all the available space on the plot of land which will enable us to greatly expand the size of the school and cater for the large numbers of students who use the building each day.
A new building will greatly improve the ability of staff to deliver quality education as it will have four dedicated classrooms to allow for segregation of classes, a community meeting room, library room, dedicated office and create a far greater learning environment for all the students who attend the centre each day.
We are appealing to anyone who would like to make a lasting and greatly improve the educational outcomes for children and young people from a marginalised community to get in contact with us.
