The return of Chandnimukha Registered Primary School by the help of PARSES Project and community

Through implementing  PARSES Phase II project,  community  helped  to change the educational  environment  of Chandnimukha  Purbapara  Rgeistered  Primary  School. The school was established on 15 October 2004 near the WAPDA dam on the bank of Kholpetuya river in the village Chandnimukha under Gabura union of Shyamnagar upazilla in Satkhira.  The school was registered on 06 July 2010. There are three female teachers, a male teacher and 227 students (109 boys and 118 girls from class one to five) in the school now.

The Cyclone Aila hit on 25 May 2009 and destroyed Chandnimukha Purbapara Registered Primary School's infrastructure. The parents of the students of this school and community people lost their houses, cattle, and other livelihood options. They could not repair the broken school because of their financial constraint.  The teachers, SMC and community members agreed to start the school in an alternative place. The PARSES Phase II project implemented school-based PYA in this school. Besides, upazilla and district level PYA implementation and financial assistance enabled the school to stand up and run again. Day by day, student admission, attendance and rate of success have been increased.  There were 319 students in total (152 boys and 167 girls) in 2011. The number increased in 2012 and now there are 357 students (176 boys and 181 girls).
