|Teachers Day at Meher English School|
"A picture is worth a thousand words", or so one might agree seeing the following photo of grinning children at the Meher English School at Meherabad. The occasion is "Teachers Day", observed all over India when pupils show appreciation for their teachers. Following "Teachers Day" comes a day of "self-government" when the older students assume the role of teachers, here seen instructing younger classes.
As you probably know, 88 years ago Beloved Baba started the Hazrat Babajan High School at Meherabad, which was followed by other schools established under His orders and for His Work in the 1920s. Obviously Baba wished education to continue in His Name at Meherabad, as the creation of schools is one of the objects specified in His Trust Deed. At Meher English School, there are currently 26 teachers and 900 students from lower Kindergarten through tenth standard (grade). We hear from the principal that His atmosphere, His guidance, and a Baba-family feeling at the school inspire the teachers and staff to do their best.
For many poor, rural parents, the opportunity for their children to study in an English-medium accredited school almost completely free of cost, with well-conducted classes, a computer lab, a library, and other facilities such as safe transportation (and clean water to drink!) is rare. But to study in this unique school at Meherabad with Avatar Meher Baba's photos in every classroom and surrounded by His atmosphere, is the children's greatest chance of all.
