The first school renovation initiative of its kind to encourage pupils to become “catalysts of change.” The school where Prime Minister Narendra Modi received his early education in Vadnagar, Gujarat, is being transformed into “Prerna (inspirational): The Vernacular School,” and two students from each district of the nation will have the chance to visit there over the course of the next year as part of a week-long study tour. In order to encourage pupils to be “catalysts of change,” an official said that this is the first school renovation project of its kind.
Each batch at the institution, according to the official, will likely have 30 kids. It is an immersive school; it is not simply about instruction. The selection criteria are still up in the air, according to a report in The Indian Express.
In order to revitalize Vadnagar, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is renovating the school.
On Wednesday, a documentary about the Vadnagar excavations will also be made available on Prime Video and the Discovery Channel.
One of the first fortified settlements and a significant focus for Buddhist education was Vadnagar. The earliest defense buildings in Vadnagar, sustainable water management techniques connecting artificial lakes, the shell bangle manufacturing sector, and external trade ties were all uncovered by ASI’s excavations in 2014.
In Vadnagar, the Gujarati government is also creating an experimental archaeological museum.
