Holya Ka Baas, a village in Rajasthan's Sikar district is a role model for public involvement in education. The village Sarpanch Kailash Chand Verma teaches Sanskrit here voluntarily and locals have donated nearly Rs 20 lakh in five years. The school infrastructure has been improved with spending of Rs 19 lakh so far according to the principal, Vinod Sharma.
The school organises additional classes for weaker students. The success of this initiative has led to students from private schools from nearby Srimadhopur town moving to the government school equipped with CCTV cameras and a digital classroom. The school has delivered 100 percent results in the Rajasthan senior secondary board examination this year.
According to Vinod Sharma, principal of the school,"The Class 12 results have been 100 percent for three consecutive years now and this year the Class 10 results were also 100 percent." He further said that the improvement in results has significantly boosted the culture of education in the village. The school has nearly 425 students and more than half of them are girls.
Before the initiative, fans were installed only in classrooms for students of Class 11 and 12. Since the public has come forward to contribute, CCTV cameras and water coolers have been installed; a digital classroom is functional and a 400-meter running track for students preparing for physical tests in competitive exams has also been constructed.
The school has 17 staff members and they have a dress code. A regular parents-teachers meet is organised to inform the parents about the performance of the students.
