Success Story

Piyush is studying at PrathmikShalaJunaBorbhatha in Class 7th. His father earned for the family as an auto driver and mother sells vegetables in the market. 

By nature, Piyush is a slow learner and he takes time to understand topics and learn. Conventional teaching-learning methods were becoming quite burdensome for him as it is not giving him enough time to absorb the understanding. He was lagging behind his classmates from a learning point of view and thus he no more felt like coming to the school regularly. He used to feel left out and self-restricted. According to his teacher Hemlata Ben, he was very shy as compared to his other peers and never being able to concentrate in class room activities. He was always a back bencher and lack confidence to speak. He was quite weak in the subjects like Mathematics, Science and English. 

Hole-in-the-Wall learning station (HiWEP) stared in the month of February, 2018 in PrathmikShalaJunaBorbhatha School. He started using HiWEP Learning Station which gave him much needed learning pace and that too as many times as he liked in a play-way learning method. This helped him to understand the topics and absorb the learning at his own pace and presented the opportunity to repeat the process as many time he needed to. The concepts and lessons were learned using many examples and in a very interactive manner, so that he could grasp and easily understand the subject.

He has been a regular visitor at HiWEP since then and he is able to search pictures and set them as wallpaper on his computer. He uses MS paint a lot and does math’s activities.This has also improved his problem-solving attitude. He also encourages children to come to the Learning Station and teaches all other children on how to use HiWEP learning station and its contents.


According to most sources, Lorum Ipsum can be traced back to a text composed by Cicero in 45 BC. Allegedly, a Latin scholar established the origin of the text by compiling all the instances of the unusual word ‘consectetur’ he could find and eventually recognized it as a passage from ‘De finibus bonorum et malorum’ (On the extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, a book that was very popular in the Middle Ages: “Neque porro quisquam est, qui dolorem ipsum, quia dolor sit, amet, consectetur, adipisci velit… ” (Approximately: “Nor is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…”). A typical Lorem Ipsum text goes like this: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisici elit, sed eiusmod tempor incidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim …”.

It seems that only fragments of the original text remain in the Lorem Ipsum texts used today. One may speculate that over the course of time certain letters were added or deleted at various positions within the text. This might also explain why one can now find slightly different versions. Due to the age of the Lorem Ipsum text there are no copyright issues to contend with.

In the 1960s, the text suddenly became known beyond the professional circle of typesetters and layout designers when it was used for Letraset sheets (adhesive letters on transparent film, popular until the 1980s) Versions of the text were subsequently included in DTP programmes such as PageMaker etc.

The spread of computers and layout programmes thus made dummy text better known. While in earlier times several lines of the Lorem Ipsum text were repeated in the creation of dummy texts, today the full text of Cicero’s ‘De finibus’ serves as the basis for many dummy text or Lorem Ipsum generators. Based on ‘De finibus’, these generators automatically create longer sections of the Lorem Ipsum text or various other filler texts.
