Computer Education Project

     Nobody in the beginning imagined that a project conceived by an ordinary teacher with thirty rupees monthly fee contribution could grow to this extent without investment & capital. The best kind of capital was the trust of people with us who believed that we could do it. The support of the Officers of the Railway administration was the real morale booster always as they said 'come on you can do it'.

If at all we can boast of any achievement it is the humble thing that we could make more than 1200 students every year confident to handle the computers which were once a bugbear.

Our teachers were illiterate in this realm of knowledge six years back. Today they competently handle these machines irrespective of their age factor.

The School Office is completely automated as far as student database management is concerned. Just press a key you have all the information about a student on your fingertips. General Register management, Result Management, Issue of various certificates are all software controlled. Principal's office and Staff room has computer terminals with access to Main server.

Our project served as an inspiration to many others and as result officials from other divisions of Central Railway visits our School for consultancy and guidance.

We are always appreciated by the distinguished officers of Railway administration on their visits, which motivates us for further exploration towards excellence.

We could train hundreds of Officers & staff of Central Railway during our evening course for a very nominal fee.

We have the resources and know-how to take on any technological changes that may come across.

We are simply the best in this area of education when compared to big private schools of Kalyan City with millions of rupees budgets at their disposal.

Our project is a living proof to encourage any ordinary school administration that if they have a will they too can do this. They can do it without the involvement of outside agencies who just make computer education just another business opportunity to exploit parents and students. Since computers have become more affordable today any School can develop this project with their own resources in a much easier way.

We have put in the best of our efforts for I.T. literacy project for our students and over the past years ever since inception we saw the results in the culmination of a state of the art learning centre. We wish the fruits of our labour should benefit some of the less privileged in the vicinity of our school.(Adoption)
