In 2020, the Punjab State government made it compulsory for all primary schools to have a kindergarten. The first KG classes at Bright Sparks were small, partly due to the difficulties of the pandemic. But from April, this year’s class has 16 children in it, aged 4-5 years.
Their teacher is Ruchi, who moved across from part-time work as the after-school tutor to take up this full-time role. It’s a progressive step for everyone. Here they all are, celebrating Independence Day. We wish them the brightest of futures.
Our small school now has six full-time teachers, and two part time, including a temporary arts and crafts teacher. After the challenges of the past couple of years, it feels as if the school is growing in strength and stability. Thanks as always to all those UK donors who help make it happen.
