In echoing the call, we have taken an initiative to set up this a school in 2015 and have been trying our best to extend education to the offspring of the residents of this part of Old Dhaka since then where education in English was totally a novel viewpoint. To ensure quality education it was imperative to have an excellent management module which could only be developed through the experience of times.

Bangladeshmoves: What do you think about the approach best suited for educating the students where most of them are afraid of going to school?

Here we are special, as we have focused on this issue before that we have reshaped our curriculum thus the students may be interested in coming to school rather than to drop out. Our Education is provided through gaming which is contributing to eliminate formal stiffness typically found in many schools of the country. In addition, application of modern audio-visual technique is helping students to be more attractive to school. Friendly approach of the teachers has also contributed to make them school friendly.
Bangladeshmoves: Some argues that education in English may detach the entire generation from the mother language – Bengali. What do you think about that?
Morshed Chisty: Well, it is most likely that medium of education is in English may make the students fanatic to English culture rather than Bengali culture. However, the fact is that we uphold the cultural norm of Bangladesh despite the language is English. Upon focusing on cultural and religious value in English, we try to create an environment so that students may be absorbed in English language but remains a true Bangladeshi. In consequence, a student may be fit to both his society and society beyond it.
