Formal Primary Schools


Outline

Bandhan Academy is a chain of seven formal primary schools under the Bandhan Education Program. The first Bandhan Academy was established in Maslandapur in the year 2012. Thereafter, six more schools were opened in Kholapota (2014), Haringhata (2015), Bagnan (2016), Panchla (2016), Taldi (2016) and Ghatakpukur (2016)


Rationale

Extensive research demonstrates that early education is crucial in building a foundation for further intellectual, cognitive and socio-emotional development in young children, which is especially lacking in rural and semi-rural areas. With this in mind, a cost-effective and sustainable primary educational model was designed to cater to children in semi-rural areas. Bandhan Academy emphasizes on holistic education- well-equipped with a computer laboratory, library and offering lessons in extra-curricular activities like dance, drama, music, spoken English, etc.
