drinking water station, refurbishment of mid-day meal/kitchen area, whitewash of school
building and education wall art in classrooms were done.

2ND Phase Development Report
In broad, total 4 activities were taken under this project. I.e. Ground Leveling and
Refurbishment, Installation of slide and See-Saw, Refurbishment of Main Gate, Repair and
Refurbishment of one Class room.
Ground Leveling and Refurbishment
AS the school is located at the foothill of Aravali, therefore the ground of the school was in
slope and uneven. Hence it was an open area but unusable for the school children for
assembly, playing or other activities. School children always required a ground to be
physically fit. Moreover, during rains, lot of water comes from the hills at the backside of
school which convert the school ground into a small seasonal river.
To address the problem, this ground has been partitioned into two portions, i.e. upper and
lower. With this, the pre-existing slop has been converted to a parallel ground. Initially, the
soil has been leveled with the help of JCB and more soil filled to raise the level and cover the
rocks coming out in the ground. To prevent the soil sliding down from the upper level a 14”
retaining wall has been constructed with stairs from two sides to give passage from lower to
upper portion of ground. To give passage to the water from the hill a shallow drain
(considering the safety of children) from the back wall of school to the outside of the gate has
been constructed. Now the children are able to assemble and play in the ground.
