Under the banner of “S R Patil Education Foundation. Badagandi” S R Patil established “Bapuji International School” in 2010 and “Bapuji Independent P U College.” in 2012 at Badagandi, Bilagi Taluk, Bagalkot District, and Karnataka with commitment to PURA (Providing Urban amenities in Rural Areas). “PURA” is a concept of Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam and its aim is to “Bring out the Best in Every Individual”. These two institutions are a perfect blend of modernity in academics steeped in Indian ethos. While announcing his “Bapuji International School” in 2010, S R Patil reminded us that, “We cannot afford to waste the talents of a generation in rural area”‘ He related this to his own experience growing up in Badagandi walking more the to attend a school at Bilagi town.
S R Patil believes, in what Nelson Mandela said that education is the most pa weapon which we can use to change the world. Education is the key to elimigender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to prep needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace. And in knowledge etch education is the new currency by which nations maintain economic competitive global prosperity. Education is an investment, and one of the most critical invest we can make. This is true not only for India, but for countries around the world.
S R Patil believes in women empowerment and in that direction expanding educational access for girls in the rural areas. Expanding educational access for girls in the rural areas is not just an urgent economic and social need but in many cases, it is literally a matter of life and death. It is known that a mother who can read can better protect her children from chronic illnesses and from dying young. It is also known that a child born to a mother who can read is 50 percent more likely to survive past age five. With a vision and mission to expand educational access for girls in the rural areas, it was decided to give special importance to admit girl students in both the institutions started by S R Patil.
People today often ask about how India can transform from poverty to prosperity. Without hesitation, S R Patil’s answer is education is the key. Education is the Foundation of peace and prosperity. S R Patil can’t imagine a better world without a global commitment to providing better education for women and youth and he urges all Of us to reinvigorate our efforts to accelerate progress in improving access, quality and Student achievement in rural areas of Karnataka in specific and India in general.
Malcolm X said “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”. Even S R Patil believes in what Malcolm X said and set up educational institutions to provide quality education by-Providing safe, mature & supportive learning environment that promotes each students’ social emotional, physical & cognitive development.
Empowering students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate, and value knowledge, skills, and abilities that will support & assist them.Supporting & nurturing the student’s natural desire to be lifelong learners.
Involving all the stake holders including parents & teachers in the overall development of the student.Building skill sets that assist each student to succeed in kindergarten, school, college & beyond.
Creating a nurturing environment where each student develops a curiosity for learning & discover where their interest lies.Encouraging each student to be independent while respecting the core values of our school.
A school and college education is one of the key values to one’s successful future by providing a secure pathway into finding a lifetime career. School and College education does not only help a person get a job, but also teaches him or her how to invest in themselves financially, socially and mentally. “Bapuji International School” and “Bapuji Independent P U College” established by S R Patil are more than a place of education. They are more than classes. papers, and exams. They are also a meaningful social experience where students develop friendships and long-term relationships with fellow students. They are also a place for students to enhance their communication skills with people they do not know and understanding cultures they are not of. They are also a place to enable and enrich our students to be ready to face the competitive world with their true spirit and enthusiasm in every walk of life. They are also a place where students will gain the ability to listen to almost anything without losing their temper or self-confidence.
S R Patil believes in “To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society”. “Bapuji International School” and “Bapuji Independent P U College” established by S R Patil give more importance to imbibing students with moral values in addition to quality education so as to make each student an asset to the society in which he lives.
Lastly, S R Patil does not believe in bribing our kids with a delicious and fun filled school lunch and pump them up for a full day of learning. “Bapuji International School and “Bapuji Independent P U College” have a campus life that is very vibrant and S R Patil has built a school in 23 acres with such an infrastructure where the activities such as music-classical, instrumental Music – Tabala, Flute , Kango etc…, arts Indian classical dance (Kathak & Bharatanatyam ), western dance, quizzes, debate. karate swimming, creative craft, yoga, and other enriching gatherings are offered to each student to facilitate full day of learning at BIS & BIPUC.
