New Year 2020! May you gain health, wealth, knowledge and happiness in everything you do in the coming year. 

Thamarai (name changed)is the 3rd daughter of Lakshmi and her father and his family wanted a son and were extremely disappointed when she was born. They continued to mistreated Lakshmi but she was determined to give Thamarai a happy childhood just like her other two daughters Kasturi and Kritika.Thamarai came into ACT when she was 4 years old. She was a shy child who would hide behind her mothers pallu and would refuse to leave her side. Over time she has blossomed into a confidentand friendly girl who loves to dance and makes friends with just a smile. Thamarai is 6 years old and in is grade 1.

 We continuously conduct various extracurricular programs and provide food in the school to inspire and motivate them to come to school regularly. And hence we do the following:

 • Make a daily protein mix which has all the vital nutrients and vitamins that the growing children need, as most of the children come to school without having breakfast. We have measured the height and weight of all the children this year to assess and analyse the impact of nutritious protein powder. In this year we have started giving them biscuits with the protein mix..

• Celebrate birthdays of the children at the end of each month. The children cut a huge cake in front of their friends, school teachers.

• Conduct music classes every Saturday for the students of Class 5 and above. We have selected 7 students through an audition and they are part of the ACT choir. They performed at old age homes for Christmas.

• Every November we celebrate Annual day. This year we celebrated our 19th Annual Day with our children. The children and mothers put up a series of variety entertainment programmes. Some of our outstanding students, mothers and volunteers were recognized on this day including two Govt. School children.

  • Mothers took part in a rangoli competetion ,they make the protein mix and we hold regular meetings with the mothers to help their children grow and succeed in making a change in their lives.

Many thanks for making 2019 memorable for the children. Let’s welcome 2020 to help  and children like her so that we can bring smiles to their face. Let’s unite to dream big for the underprivileged children and attract their parents by the facilities and amenities of the school to bring the children to school regularly.

Helping children get a education

Children Quarterly Assessments
Children Quarterly Assessments

Our mission is to provide an all-round education for the children, including academics as well as extra-curricular activities.

 

Members of Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) visit the school regularly and interact with the Headmistress, teachers and children.We provide a healthy protein mix and biscuits as supplementary food for the students six days a week. While interacting with the students we realised that most of them were not eating breakfast at home, so we decided to provide protein mix and biscuits to the students every day in the morning.

ACT has been providing van service for bringing 30 children from nearby  slums.

Volunteering Activities:

  • ACT has been organizing volunteering activities on all the weekdays. Our volunteers teach the students English throughout the week. ACT Operation Coordinator teaches basic English to classes 1 and 2  using a tablet and Math by using the Building Blocks app for classes 1 to  5. It has been observed that the students enjoy these classes immensely.
  • ACT organises yoga classes in the school every Saturday with the help of volunteers.
  • Every month, ACT celebrates the birthdays of the school children, who have their birthdays in that month. We invite them to cut a cake, sponsored by ACT. We also invite the parents to be a part of this birthday celebration.The cake and chips are distributed among children, school staff and guardians who are present during the celebration. 
  • SaPa in Schools was founded by musicians Bindu and Ambi Subramaniam. The mission of SaPa in Schools is to create an ecosystem for Music Education in India, and to teach art not only for arts’ sake, but also promotes a larger vision around how Indian and global music can be used to spread global cultural awareness, peace and tolerance, and promote sustainable living. Since 2014, SaPa in Schools has been providing high quality Indian andglobal music education, as an integral part of school curriculum. The strength of the program is age appropriate teaching methodologies, which include activities, books, audio and video material, student assessment and teacher training. We have twenty students from class 1 to class 5, every Wednesday attending these classes.
  • ACT organized  the quarterly basic academic assessment which involved assessing the children for their knowledge of English both spoken and written.

Diwali,the festival of lights was celebrated with joy and with the distribution of sweets to the children and staff members of the school.
