Sangla Balkumari Secondary School was established in 1951 as a Language School and later converted into primary school in a small thatched hut having three rooms until 1977. Later in 1977, the school was upgraded to a lower secondary and in 2000 to a secondary school running up to Grade 10. However, the school witnessed a massive change when it was converted into a higher secondary school with the initiation of the headmaster in coordination with the public and the political leaders, social workers etc. Consequently, students who have been compelled to walk for almost two hours for higher education can now get their pre-university education here.
Currently, the school has three concrete buildings, 29 teacher staff, a library, Science and computer lab. Because the parents are very poor and cannot afford their children’s stationery and other materials for study, an NGO called Lele Community Development Centre (LCDC) a sister organization of Good Neighbor International (GNI) provides stationery items to children between 5 and 12 years of age and continue its support until they finish their school education. At the same time, the teachers have also lacked the opportunity for their professional development. Basically, the emerging trend of Englishization has compelled us to convert the school into a school with fully English medium instruction. All our teachers impart have been working hard to provide education to our children with English medium instruction, which is a hot cake in Nepal today both in the elite and the poor community. Because of this, Sangla Balkumari Secondary School has proved to be an excellent alternative of the private schools with an intention to allow opportunities to those who throng into private schools seeking admission to their children. At this juncture, TEA fellowship offered to its principal who holds a doctoral degree remains a milestone being an example of the teachers’ hard work and their positive will towards their professional development.
Despite the poor economic as well as physical infrastructure, the school has been trying its best to offer quality education to its wards. The result in the national examinations in both the Secondary Education Examinations (SEE) as well as School Leaving Certificate Examinations (SLC) show the academic excellence of the school. Besides, we have received many awards and prizes in extra as well as co-curricular activities.
