Shashikala said the video is aimed at creating awareness on the school’s facilities among people in rural areas. “At present, 60 students are studying here, and we expect 15-20 fresh admissions,” she said.

Besides the video, a dedicated blog has also been created to spread the word.

According to Shashikala, their students were engaged in various activities through online platforms even during the two lockdowns.

Hunsur block education officer (BEO) S P Nagaraju appreciated the schoolteachers for being innovative. “They are keeping the students engaged in the learning activities via digital platforms and gadgets, etc,” he said.

School Development and Monitoring Committee (SDMC) chairman Thyagaraje Urs said the school teachers are working hard to keep their students active academically. “Villagers are also proud about the school and its teachers. It is the preferred institution for many villagers,” he said.
