Established in the year 1994, Abotani Vidya Niketan, Pachin Colony has developed into one of the leading institutions in Papumpare district of Arunachal.
The School stands on 3 acres of land, located against a tranquil green backdrop. The campus consists of its own school building, play ground, computer lab, well stocked library and science labs. The school also runs school buses for safe and easy transportation of students.
The school had a humble beginning in a rented place with very few students in the main town area. It was in the year 1998 that the school received the present land through a donation. Earlier the school had a ‘Kuccha’ structure and it was only in the year 2018 that construction of the ‘Pucca’ structure was started. Presently a double storeyed building has been constructed along with attached hostel facilities. It is the only school in the state that received a 1 lakh ltr. overhead water tank for the use of the students and hostel residents.
Approximately 300 to 500 students from remote areas of the state, study in the school under the guidance of 24 teachers and have classes till the 10th standard.
Like all Vidya Bharati schools, Abotani Vidya Niketan lays great importance on the overall growth of the students. Thus personality development, physical education, yoga, cultural education, arts, moral education, social service, nationalism and spiritual education are all part of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to participate in sports and cultural festivities with equal fervour.
In 2019, the student band from this school had participated in the State organised parade on the occasion of republic day and was awarded with 1st prize.
The children learn discipline, social service and the Indian culture through first hand experiences. Sometime back the school had organised one of the first ‘Matra Sammelan’, where 1200 mothers from the neighbouring areas attended the event. The Honorable Education Minister attended the event as well.
The essence of samaj seva or social service is one of the important components that is installed among the students. The school which believes in leading by example, is associated with diverse social activities. During the Covid Pandemic, the school prepared and distributed more than 750 Khadi face masks. They also distributed 332 food kits to the needy. 1 lakh rupees was donated by the school members towards the CM relief fund.
Along with all the extracurricular activities, quality education is also provided by the school which is exemplified by several of its alumni who have become well settled in life. Several doctors, engineers , medical officers have received their education from Abotani Vidya Niketan.
While speaking about the support that the school received from the local community, principal of the school, Sukumaran Ji stated that they have received great support from the parents of the students, who feel that their children can grow into ideal and socially responsible citizens only under the guidance of the school.
