Projects: Education

together with the Kirpal Sagar Academy

Education projects of KS-Plus support in schools and in adult education as well. They focus on expanding and deepening the range of services on offer – a plus in education.

Workshops First Aid

    • First aid is a blessing where rescue services are thin on the ground. The Academy set the target for 2017 that the students of the medical branch of +1 and +2 should be taught first aid in First Aid-Courses. That was indeed a furious start in October ! At the moment we are collecting for more practice material.

Solar Energy for School

    • Electricity is needed for many things in a school. In the medium term, it should come largely from solar power. A project for this was launched in 2017. In addition to energetic help, we also collect money for it.

Extending the school building

    • A good indoor climate supports learning. Twice a year, the monsoon brings large amounts of rain and thus great challenges. KS-plus supports the physically healthy expansion of the facilities and buildings to the best of its ability. In 2018 we will start with music.

    • Integration of foreign lecturers: together with the Academy and the Indian provider, we want to expand the distance learning system so that foreign schools and teachers can also participate,
    • Further content is integrated into the distance learning system for this purpose.
    • School exchanges, international school projects like the P-Seminar of the Gymnasium Freyung in the school year 2019/2021 and school partnerships in perspective are mediated and supported.
