At present children study up to Class VIII in our Institution and thereafter we give them financial support for higher education or for vocational training as per their choice..
Along with their formal educational, Khelaghar children are given vocational training in various fields, as for example:-
We provide training to village women and our inmates in Embroidery work on Jute and other materials. We organize Handicraft Exhibition in Kolkata, Santiniketan and other places.
We have about twenty bighas of farmland were we mostly cultivate vegetables, rice lintels etc for our own consumption and to give the children some exposure to farming process.
A micro dairy produces a small quantity of milk and serves to give the children practical experience of the dairy farm.
This section is the main stay of Khelaghar. Our teacher from Kolkata and the neighborhood visit Khelaghar twice a week to teach our children vocal music along with dance,recitation drama,fine arts etc.
All our festivals are secular and season based. Two of our main annual programmes, worth mentioning are ;
Tree Planting Ceremony to welcome The Monsoon and to inculcate in the children love for nature and the importance of preserving trees.
Spring Festival with music ,dance and a profusion ofcolor to Welcome Spring.
Beyond their curriculum children are given training in computer application once a week, for which a training center has been built in Khelaghar with about twenty odd computers received through donation. Recently a computer awareness class has been started for the poor children of the neighbouring villages. These classes are conducted by our senior boys under the guidance of their computer teacher.
Where the mind is without fear,
Where the head is held high,
Where knowledge is free.
