News & Events
On 20th August we celebrated our 29th Founder's Day. On this moment of achievement we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Mr Bissell, his family and friends to envision a center of excellence in the remotest parts of the country. Our gratitude to our Chairman and the dedicated Board Members for their commitment in strengthening the philosophy of affordable, quality education. 
Our special gratitude to the founding principal and his/her team to lay down the foundation of learning. Our sincere gratitude to all our former principals, educators and support staff for carrying forward the legacy of learning, sharing and caring. Our warmest gratitude to all our present day educators, support staff, parents, students, alumni and all our well wishers to strengthen the bond of love and affection.
The school was established in 1992 in Bali, Rajasthan by Sir William Bissell and Sir John Bissell. Aim of The Fabindia School was to provide access to high quality education for boys and girls at the rural level using English as the medium of instruction. The school views primary education as a major stepping stone towards social mobility, equality and employment opportunities. The school has been committed to encourage girls' education in a culture where the parents who can afford an English medium school would send only. To realize the dream of providing educational opportunities for girls, the school gives upto 100 scholarships and 70% are for girls alone. One of the most important values imparted is for students to stay connected to their birth places.
An anecdote
We started with a few but now we are many not only in numbers but also in talents and creativity. Congratulations dears for all your efforts and accomplishments!
I remember my first day at The Fabindia School. I was about a foot shorter and scared to walk around the corner. During the years at this school, I have been able to conquer my fears, face my obstacles and break apparent boundaries and all of this has led me to talk to you today. It is time to reflect on the school’s past and those that have helped to shape who we are, and to acknowledge the community members, both past and present, who have influenced the character and values that embody the vibrant, engaging, and safe environment we see today. We honour our Founding Members as we reflect on the commitment, resilience and dedication they displayed to see their vision come to reality. Our heartfelt gratitude to our Founding Members for opening the gates of opportunities, challenges and accomplishments to fulfil our dreams.
Before I sign off, I would like to share a small message with my fellow friends, You may be facing a little hiccup in your education. Face your fear of what is ahead and jump over those hurdles – but also, acknowledge the great education and the opportunity The Fabindia School has given you.
Thank you and have a joyful day!

Gratitude Towards the School 
I still remember, when I was in 10th standard and my neighbor's daughters were studying in The Fabindia School. They had their Annual day program, so they asked me and my sister to come to see the program. When I saw the school for the first time, I really liked it because I found something different there. It's structure and students were so amazing. When I was about to complete my graduation, I used to think that if I ever would be a teacher, I would like to teach in The Fabindia School. When I was appointed as a teacher in 2011 after completing my post graduation, it was like a dream came true. I was delighted to be here. It was a little difficult in the beginning, but slowly slowly, I learnt a lot under the guidance of all three Principals and my senior teachers. I have recently completed 10 years in the school. The Fabindia School is more than a school because of it's familiar environment. I really love the natural environment and greenery around the school which is hard to find somewhere else. Here students are given both academic and moral education. I am glad to be a part of The Fabindia family. On the occasion of Founder's Day, I would like to convey my gratitude to all those who made this wonderful school for the kids.

Founder's Day: A memorable Day of the Year
Due to Coronavirus, this year we had a virtual celebration of Founder's Day and this day has become a memorable day of the year. I participated in the program. I performed a dance. I was praised by parents, teachers, students, Principal ma'am etc . Though I can't go to school, so I practiced a lot for my dance and danced in the program. I was excited for the program as it is the day when our school was established and we can show our happiness being a part of this school. Many children participated in the program, it seemed like we were in the school. I really enjoyed it thoroughly. I am glad that our teachers organized this program for us and gave us a chance to show our talent.

*My Good School *
If I could...
Erase all the pain,
Etched on each and every face.
Reach out to all those,
Who are famished to death.
Console all the hearts,
Who are mourning their lost ones.
Kill the helplessness, 
Of not meeting each other.
Return all the smiles,
Missing in every face.
And finally, 
Open all the closed doors,
Of my beloved learning center ‐ my school.
My school that is my energy drink,
My school that is my power nap,
My school is 'My Good School' .

TYPES OF LEAVES 
I collected many leaves from my garden. They all are of different sizes and shapes. Then I pasted them on paper according to ascending order. Then I measured them using a scale. All have different measurements. I collected these leaves from tulsi, rose, lemon, grapes, neem, ashoka, money plant and pomegranate plants. In this way, I came to know about different leaves and am now able to identify these plants.

मेरा बस्ता
मेरा बस्ता मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगता है।
मेरे बस्ते का रंग हल्का गुलाबी है। यह रंग मेरा पसंदीदा है । मेरे बस्ते में 5 तरह की पॉकेट हैं। बस्ते में मैं अपनीकॉपी किताब रखता हूँ। जब मैं पढ़ाई करता हूँ तब बस्ते को उठाकर तभी किताब निकालना हूँ। पढ़ाई करने के बाद मैं अपना बैग जगह पर रखता हूँ। आगे की पॉकेट में मेरे पेंसिल इरेज़र बॉक्स रखता हूँ। साइड की पॉकेट में वाटर बोतल रखता हूँ। इस तरह से मेरा बस्ता मुझे जान से भी ज्यादा प्यारा है। मेरे बस्ते पर मोटू पतलू का चित्र बना हुआ है ,जो मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगता है। मेरा बस्ता मेरे पिताजी ने मुझे दिलाया है। मेरे बस्ते को रखने की एक व्यवस्थित जगह हैं।

स्वतंत्रता दिवस
15 अगस्त के दिन को हम स्वतंत्रता दिवस के रूप में मनाते हैं । भारत को 15 अगस्त, 1947 के दिन  आजादी प्राप्त हुई थी । इस दिन भारत के प्रथम प्रधानमंत्री पं. जवाहर लाल नेहरू ने लाल किले पर राष्ट्रीय ध्वज फहराया था। हम स्वतंत्रता दिवस बहुत उत्साह से मनाते हैं। अनेक स्थानों इस दिन चहल-पहल होती है। लोग तिरंगा झंडा फहराकर एक-दूसरे को स्वतंत्रता दिवस बधाई देते हैं। हम भी हमारे विद्यालय में स्वतंत्रता दिवस मनाते हैं । विद्यालय, रेलवे स्टेशन और अनेक कार्यालय में झंडा फहराया जाता है। हमारी प्रधानाध्यापिका हमारे विद्यालय में झंडा फहराती है। अनेक सांस्कृतिक कार्यक्रम होते हैं। अंत में लड्डू वितरण भी होता है। 
जय हिंद।

Compassion 
Compassion means having feelings of sympathy or consideration for others. One can feel pain or understand the problems and difficulties of others and help them in whichever way they can help. We do this for the comfort of the person who is unhappy or in pain or difficulty.
The feeling of compassion is there in each and every person. But only few are able to express compassion towards others as they know how it feels to be distressed. On the other hand some are not able to express it as they have no feeling in their heart for others i.e. they are selfish. There are other values connected with compassion like love, care, empathy, kindness, humility, etc. These values help us to stay connected with each other and care for one another. Compassion is an important value which can keep humanity alive. If there is no humanity in us, then the world will become a depressed place and only hatred and war will be left.
As educators and parents we must inculcate this value of compassion in our children by doing small work like helping others, caring for our pets and also stray animals, being polite to elders and giving them time, sharing food with our friends when they have forgotten their lunch box, talking to the person who is sad or unhappy, etc. When children will see their parents and teachers doing these acts of kindness, they will also do the same and thus, compassion will be inculcated in them.
