OUR CORE VALUES
Through the five years that we nurture these young students, our primary focus is:
Shaping character and imparting holistic development.
Ensuring that each student is physically, emotionally, and spiritually stable.
Enabling them to become confident individuals.
Encouraging them to become a change in their society.
Our desire is to bring about transformation and make the years spent at RSL the best years of their lives.
Helping the Community
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.”
We began with conducting free tuition for approximately 100 students from the underprivileged community in and around the Cox Town area. We soon noticed that despite being a part of Government Aided Schools, they were unable to read and write English.
This injustice to the students and their parents led to ‘Radiant School of Learning’ being established under the aegis of Reach Trust in the year 2003. We began coaching children from the age of 12 under the National Open School Syllabus (NIOS). This allowed them to appear for their Secondary and Senior Secondary exams as they were prepared, giving them the opportunity to learn English from the basics.
The students also lacked fundamental values of life, leading us to invest beyond their education and in their personal lives. By conducting Value Education classes, we supported them in character building.
We also noticed that malnourishment caused many of them to be distracted, fall asleep or even collapse during class. This motivated us to provide each student with a healthy mid-day meal and till date, this is the only meal for many of the students.
Educating the Community
The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) is an autonomous organization established by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD).
It consists of two courses - Secondary and Senior Secondary, the equivalent of Std.10 and Std.12.
Students at Radiant School of Learning are coached for the Secondary Course and are given 5 years to complete this program. These students are groomed to be confident individuals allowing them to speak and communicate in English alongside the Secondary Syllabus.
The subjects taught under the Secondary course are:
