Halepete Government Higher Primary School Gets a Makeover

Revitalizing Education Halepete Government Higher Primary School Gets A Makeover

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Baduku Kattona Team and various organizations, the government higher primary school in Halepete, Ujire, located in Belthangady taluk, has undergone a remarkable transformation. Established in 1979, the school was in a dilapidated state, desperately needing attention.


Despite appeals for assistance, neither local representatives nor the government provided aid to address the school’s deteriorating condition. Upon learning about its plight, the Baduku Kattona Team, along with collaborators such as the Rotary Club of Belthangady, Can Fin Bengaluru, and the Belthangady Taluk Journalists’ Association, took the initiative to renovate the school.

The project, launched by MLC Prathap Simha Nayak on February 4, involved constructing a new roof, providing educational materials, building a gate, and painting the walls. With 124 students and seven teachers spanning grades 1 to 7, the school now stands rejuvenated and ready for inauguration this week.

K Mohan Kumar, leading the Baduku Kattona Team, expressed gratitude for the support of other organizations, emphasizing their shared vision of developing government schools. Under the guidance of D Veerendra Heggade, Dharmadhikari of Sri Kshetra Dharmasthala, and his wife Hemavati V Heggade, the team aims to revitalize 25 government schools. Already having rejuvenated three schools, with a fourth in progress, the reconstruction of Halepete School stands as a model for their endeavors.
