GHPS Kakolu School | Learning 21st century skills

GHPS KAKOLU was established in 1950 and it is managed by the Department of Education. 

The QShala Program, sponsored by the Educait Trust was conducted at Kakolu Government School for the students in grades 8 and 9. Five sessions were conducted over the course of two weeks for 38 children, in the month of December 2019.    

Our Outreach program focuses on tapping the curiosity in underprivileged children from government schools and low-income private schools. It aims at providing exposure to the students to world scenarios and to make the content they read in their textbooks more relatable. 

Objectives: Over the course of the workshop, QShala covered the following objectives:  

  • To instill and inculcate a passion for curiosity (through quizzing) and learning thereby 
  • Pointers at acquiring key personality traits – speaking, listening, reading, and presentation skills  
  • Encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship  
  • Mentoring and feedback 


  • Introduce topics through questions framed in interesting formats

  • Stories, trivia, and interesting anecdotes on various occurrences, personalities, events, structures, and places, included to pique participants’ inquisitiveness about the world through engaging audio-visual content 
  • These stories would be used to build context, around their conventional studies so that they are given a greater reason to understand it
