ZPHS (Boys) Bibipet was established in 1929. The school runs with both Telugu and English medium curriculums. The school is being administered by Mrs K.R. Padmini since 1993. Over the last few years, the school has been accommodating more than 550 students every year. In the current year (2018-19), the school has reached its all-time high strength of 620 students.
The students of ZPHS Bibipet have not only been performing very well academically but also in extra curricular activities. Various cultural programs including essay writing and elocution competitions are also held at the premises.PFI has introduced the book ‘Lead with Values’ to the school which they have been following throughout the academic year with the help of their guide teacher, Ms Arundhati.
Few of the activities undertaken are:
Children studying in remote areas rarely get exposed to concepts like robotics or rockets. While the rest of the world lives on internet, these students have little or no access to even computers.
Suraj Pabbathi (Founder and President of PFI) picked up this new technology from KHEL creativity club in USA. Suraj has found the potential of introducing this to students of India. He trained Aravind Garrepally, who took further interest in learning EV3 Mindstorm Robotic set and showed enthusiasm in training students in remote schools of Telangana.
Ms Arundhati, a teacher from ZPHS (Boys) Bibipet selected a few students who have not only learnt but could also successfully impart knowledge to fellow students of not only that school but also to the students of neighborhood schools. The Telugu medium students gave their first performance at ZPHS (Girls) Bibipet and the English medium students at KGBV-Malkapur.
ZPHS (Boys) Bibipet is one of the few schools to grab this opportunity through PFI. The students are overwhelmed to be trained in this field as this is a dream come true to them. Mr Suraj has this vision at the inception of this organization in the year 2010 and his dream came true after 8 years.
Though the school is being supported by the Government, only basic necessities are being looked after. The students can avail better opportunities to showcase their talent provided they get a proper support. After speaking to the management, PFI understands that the school’s library is not up to the mark. A room with the collection of books not only looks messy but it is very difficult to find the desired book from an unorganized collection of the same. PFI has decided to arrange for library racks to be installed so that the books can be placed in an organized manner for easy access.
