Hi Folks,

Last week we, myself Athi(91) and Srinivasan(not our member) visited Siragu Montessori school running by Suyam Charitable Trust. We went there just after the teachers left. So, we were able to talk only to PET staff and Computer faculty.

They(Suyam grp) are running the school perfectly. At present, its upto 6th std only. They started with only upto 5th std. Once the final batch finished their classes, they started 6th. And, they sed this process will be continued in the future also. Uma(Trustee of Suyam) is trying to get govt approval for 10th std. And, they are preparing their own sylabus and so, they don’t look like our normal lessons, but innovative. For every quarter they distributed a bound book which consists of that sessions’ all lessons. And, the books are revised every year. They, not only takes reference from other books, but also refer Internet. So, most of the things are up-to-date in the book.

They setup a computer centre by their own, few months ago. It may even help us to get an to implement our idea of Digital learning centre. ‘coz they hav lotta DVDs, classified for different age of students, right 4m Thenaliraman stories to Space and atoms, etc. They sed the performance of the students is improving constantly.

Apart 4m hostel students, some other village students are also studying in the school, with free-of-cost. They recently participated in an inter-school competition and won the first prize in some of the events. Few students even showcased their acting in-front of us. 😉

It gave us immense pleasure to know that our grp’s effort also helps them. (we are paying the monthly fee for Tamil staff)

I took some fotos and yet to upload them. Will post the link, once I hav done with tat.

Luv,
Athi (B +ve)

We are responsible for what we are and whatever we wish ourselves to be.
