Education is a movement from darkness to light which leads us to the apex of success and development. It is a continuous process. From our birth to death we learn different aspects of life and the world from different positionality. This learning process never ends. While learning varied elements we enhance our inner capabilities.
If we unearth the history of formal education in Nepal, it is actually initiated in 1910 B.S. by Jung Bahadur Rana. But it was out of reach for common and downtrodden people of the country. With the fossilization of Rana regime those marginalized and downtrodden people got access to formal education.
During that time, there was a trend set to inaugurate the schools in different places of the country. Following this beautiful trend, Shree Bhanu Secondary School was established. To then Pradhanpunch Khadga Bahadur Adhikari, Village Mukhiya Nandalal Darai and other several social activists played a vital role to establish this school.
This school began its voyage from a shyaule Tahara in the pasture area of Dumsi chour known as Kharkatar. However, presently this school has its own three-buildings and one is under construction.
The current record says that Bhanu was established on Falgun 15, 2028 B.S., but in the record of the first principal of School, Damodar Adhikari and other old records it is found that this school was commenced before 2028 B.S.
Geographically, this school is situated 150 km west of Kathmandu Valley, 50 km east of Pokhara and 5 km north of headquarter Damauli, name of the place is Dumsi chaur. Dumsi chaur is a beautiful semi-remote hillside area of Vyas Municipality.
Its motor route is Taalghare to Pokhrelphat which is connected with Prithivi highway so we can easily catch buses of this route to reach Bhanu Secondary School. The route is quite an ascent but when we reach Dumsi chour it’s a flat top.
There is Nirbu, Barahakhola, Barahi Mandir, Boudha Ghumba, Jaleshor Mahadev Mandir in the east of the school. In the west, there is another Boudha Ghumba, Nareshor Barahi Mandir, Bhanu Shanti Park and in the North, we can see Dumsi kot Kalika Mandir with the glimpse of Annapurna Himalayan range which creates a delightful surrounding of school.
To run any institution smoothly, we need a budget. For school, there is no difference. A school budget is a fiscal managerial document used to plan for the projection of expenditure that will be incurred during a designated period of time. This school has mainly four different income sources they are: Government fund, District Education Treasury fund, local government fund and local community donation.
Current Principal of the school, Rajendra Prasad Sigdel tells that last fiscal year budget of school is eighty lakhs approximately. And this is not a decent amount for school requirements. Therefore this school is in need of vigilance from stakeholders for this matter.
Shree Bhanu Secondary School is the hope of several students and parents for their promising future. Those parents, who can afford, send their children to a nearby boarding school but most of those who can not afford, go to Shree Bhanu Secondary School but their dreams and hopes are no less than boarding students and teachers of Bhanu are always keen to guide their students to pursue their precious dream.
