Boparai Kalan
This is an official website of Boparai Kalan, a village of Damdami Taksal

It was the times of "Singh Sabha Lehar" in between 1915-1925 when some of the villagers opted to learn punjabi,  with some efforts they started the first punjabi pathshala in the house of S. Jagir Singh Jagpal.  In these days the govt was giving the knowledge of URDU only.
The first teacher they found in this village was "Mata Nihal Kaur" w/o S. Kehar Singh Mistri.  She started the pathshala like a school from the very first class i.e. KACHI JMAAT.  She was given the pay amounting Rs. 5/- by the villagers and no fee was charged from the students.
After some time "Mata Harnam Kaur" who was also middle pass offered to provide her services and offered her house to be established as the school.  Villagers supported the idea and the Pathshala was shifted to her house near the CHHAPPAR (TOBA).  Then both ladies were doing their duties with a great zeal.
In between this time till the independence years no more information is available.  It was near about 1946 or 1947 when leading personalities of village Baba Maingal Singh Sandhu, Babu Uttam Singh, Dr. Kartar Singh Deol, S. Maan Singh, S. Randhir Singh etc. approached the Govt. to start the govt. school in village
At getting the necessary approvals, within one year villagers started "GURU NANAK KHALSA GIRLS MIDDLE SCHOOL".  First Headmistress was "BIBI DALIP KAUR".  Girls in the supervision of Maees of surrounding villages 
which include Dhatt, Budhel, Pandori, Raqba, Sudhar, Kular and Jassowal etc. started to join this school.  Later, it was upgraded to high and thenafter to higher secondary level.
Started from KACHI JMAAT in a SMALL HOUSE the school is now named as "GOVT GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL, BOPARAI KALAN" and is housed in a very big and attractive cemented building.  In addition to girl students, the school providing education to the boys as well, of this village upto matric.
