The month of December is the season of rice harvesting which is followed by a number of village festivals in the local areas. But due to the Covid-19, the festive mood is not much visible among the villagers that used to be. A number of festivals have been canceled because of the pandemic including the famous fair ‘Poush Mela’ at Santiniketan. During this time of the year, the students also get ready for their school final examination.  Although schools had been reopened for the senior students, the attendance was very low. Those who could not attend the online classes due to lack of mobile phones, their frustration is unimaginable.  

We are happy that after almost two years Martin da has returned to the village. 



Besides conducting regular classes, cleaning and gardening, Bishnubati celebrated the 8thMuseum Day celebration on 9th December successfully. Due to pandemic guidelines external guests were limited. The students from Ghosaldanga, Bishnubti and RSV presented a song, dance and a Santali play in the evening in front of the villagers.    





The regular activities of coaching classes, cleaning, gardening and health care programmes continued as usual.

RSV school

The school has not re-opened yet. Two classes at a time were called to the school for teaching-learning on alternate days.  The admission for the new academic year 2022 is going on. Asit Roy, a writer and social worker from Kolkata stayed in the school for a day and interacted with the students. Music lessons, sports, cleanliness and nutritional food have been provided to the students regularly. 

Vocational training and youth empowerment


Five youths are working in various companies in various towns and cities in India. Four students are continuing their training in different Government technical institutes in the district. Seven students including two girls have successfully completed their four days Rock Climbing Course organized by Kolkata Trekkers youth this month along with their group leader Pankaj Mukherjee.   



Kick for Help


Football coaching courses continued regularly both for boys and girls.



Hostel Coaching Centre and Students’ farming



The coaching center continued regularly. After making the mushroom bags last month, a good production of mushroom has been produced. The students are happy to see the outcome. After fulfilling the need of the school kitchen, students themselves sold the mushroom to the general public.
