When she was appointed in Primary School Rajpura, the condition of the school was very challenging. Forget about learning, the physical infrastructure was not conducive for a better learning environment.

But she converted this challenging opportunity to make Rajpura as a model school for others and set a benchmark with her leadership skills, hard work and investing her own money on school development.

Her days begin with a dream and end with a dream. The dream of seeing more and more children on the school premises learning and becoming empowered.

Her initiatives on the educational front have been dynamic and daring! Under her charge, the books and blackboards are not confined to providing knowledge. But walls and surroundings are also a part of imparting education among children.

School Library

Apart from including visual means like role plays, flashcards, integrated picture books or BIG BOOKS for making learning more fun, she has also ensured that the surrounding walls are painted with Teaching and Learning Materials (TLM). This means that the school walls are not only coloured with bright, attractive paint but also with educational drawings and pictures for better learning and educational purposes.

She has been consistently maintaining the infrastructure of the school with adequate external support and her due spirit! With furniture aid from MLC Ms. Sarojini Agarwal and educational and technological equipment aids from the Rotary Club, she has herself strived hard to maintain a positive atmosphere of the school through a well-maintained library, well-provided sports room, and other significant facilities.

Initiatives like traditional “God Bharai” rituals, organising medical camp in campus have made her unique and popular among the parents and the students of her school.

Their entire day passes away in learning, taking care of their saplings sown in the Lata Vatika (named after Smt. Lata Mangeshkar), and doing physical activities.

She has even collaborated with an Aanganwadi to encourage girls to bring along their younger siblings so that they can leave their siblings under the good care of the people and get back to classrooms. This has been most importantly a milestone initiative that has not only encouraged young girls but also their parents to let them study further.

She also hosts routine PTMs and community camps to create awareness and general knowledge among everyone to encourage their daughters to study and become independent.

Her initiatives and dedication have made the school popular to such an extent that she has received 31 new admissions even in the times of a global pandemic.
