Old School is a unique educational initiative in India that embraces the belief that learning begins even before birth and emphasizes the role of the community in a child's upbringing. The project aims to integrate indigenous methods of integral education with contemporary schooling, preserving the rich cultural heritage of the region. Located in the outskirts of Vilvanatham village in Tamil Nadu, the site is surrounded by lush paddy fields and tamarind forests. The village, known for its handicrafts and use of natural materials in construction, lacks access to nearby schools, leading to a high number of uneducated children settling for low-paying jobs. Old School seeks to provide a solution by utilizing nature as a playground for learning, imparting valuable life skills while preparing children for the challenges of the modern world and higher education.
