Bholu 6 is situated within the Ramipir No Tekro next to Vadaj Circle and is close to Bholu’s 1, 2 and 10. The B6 site was originally purchased and built in 2009. Several major issues were found in Bholu 6 regarding the roof structure and the failure of the Ganga recycled roof material after 5 monsoon seasons, as well as the inadequate ventilation and temperature control of the Bholu in the hotter months.
The school had become became unusable and was in need of a major renovation. TAP volunteer Jo Waterhouse began structural renovation works in October of 2014 and volunteers Gemma Pierce Cooke and Nikki Holdsworth took over in November and December respectively to complete the internal nishes (painting and oor and wall mosaics) and inaugurate to beautiful new school.
The exceptional new features of Bholu 6 are the katlo woven ceiling panels that support the ceiling insulation and animal mosaics designed and installed in part by visiting Australian design students and the Steps for Schools team in November and early December. The katlo ceiling panels are a beautiful design feature that could be retro tted to other Bholu’s and integrated into future Anganwadi designs.
