Sita School started in 1975 at Dasarahalli (Bangalore district) to address the problem of many local children not going to school and dropping out of school for lack of money or flexibility in mainstream schools to accommodate children with special needs
At Sita School, children can enter at any level and are encouraged to learn at own pace without exam pressure with emphasis of practical work, observation, and experimentation
In addition to learning mainstream education like math, science, social studies, children also learn clay work, tailoring, needlework, printing, first aid, food, health, gardening etc.
School tries to focus on child’s imagination by cultivating in them a sense of wonder, appreciation of surroundings, health, nature respect for one another and environment
Thus, preparing many children either to enter mainstream education at high school stage or enabling them acquire skills to improve quality of life as they grow
Diwali was celebrated in Nov 2011. Children prepared lanterns and built a fort. Drama was held
Christmas celebrated in Dec 2011. Children prepared crafts, clay animals and crib with bricks, straw, bamboo and coconut leaves. Drama was held in which all children participated
Children were presented geography of Karnatake state and interactive sessions were held by Jane and Kamala. For e.g., slides of Malnad was shown and asked ‘ Which things are grown in the hills or Why can’t tea be grown in Silvepura etc. etc. ’
