There’s a lot of uncertainty still surrounded as to when the life will come back to normal, when things will get back to normal so on and so forth.

However, amidst all this, the lockdown has led to some trends changing. Trends such as digital learning, work from home, contact less services etc. The world is accelerating faster than before into a more online space.

HOPE foundation Matriculation School has also integrated itself into this new normal and has adopted the digital teaching and learning platform for the students of HOPE School.

It is said that, Time and Tide wait for none. … thus, having applied this phrase in our lives, HOPE school connected with the students in the month of April 2020 and have completed three months of successful online teaching and learning of the students and also engaging the students in a meaningful way inspite of no regular school.

Though challenging but, HOPE school teachers made efforts to connect with 355 students out of 420.

Continued awareness sessions are being conducted for the parents and students on hand washing, Self-hygiene, keeping the surrounding clean, maintaining social distancing after which the teacher posts the videos related to the same on the WhatsApp group created class wise.

Teachers have created a proper timetable for online classes and are imparting foundational training inEnglish alphabets, Tamil alphabets, Numbers, Number Names, counting objects, Tamil rhymes, short stories and different environmental study concepts. Videos and worksheets are sent to students for them to practice every day.

Teachers have also shared online links with the students which carry activities such as reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, scientific experiments, word search activity, crossword, memory activity, Tamil crossword etc.,

Students are engaged in doing drawing, coloring, paper craft works, photography to stimulate their creativity.

Practical life skills/activities such as self-care, napkin folding, rolling the mat, button the shirt, walk in a circle etc., are being taught to students and asked them to learn and practice it on day to day basis.

Teachers using various methods such as screen recorder, merging the audio and video files for better concept clarity for the students.

To enhance the knowledge and capabilities of the teachers with regards to the changing trends, they are asked to attend various webinars, zoom meeting organized by various corporates that focus on different aspects of life, handling children, coping with the adversaries, children’s issues- change strategies in COVID times” etc

This pandemic has forced us to adapt and change the way we live and think because things won’t go back to normal in a few weeks, or even a few months. Some things never will go back to the way it was before March 18, when the movement control order was first enforced. Therefore, it gives us immense pleasure to say that we could not have achieved this alone. Continued support from your ends helps us educate 420 students of HOPE school even in these challenging times. We request you to stand with us and support us to help the underprivileged children to have a better future and Bring HOPE and Change Lives of the children in need.

They were selected to participate in NATIONAL CHILDREN'S SCIENCE CONGRESS, a flagship program of NCSTC NETWORK. It is also a platform to celebrate practical science and an inclusive platform where young scientists use their scientific skills to address real problems. D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s presented a research paper on “Traditional Knowledge Systems (TKS)” and did a research for 61 days on “How copper water helps to cure many diseases”. Out of 140 research papers presented on the day of the summit, the jury selected 73 research papers and D. Anuangel & M.

Missiles are awesome scientific inventions that capture the attention of many people and cause exciting scientific discoveries, exactly that's how excited our Hope Foundation school children when they came to know that, they're going to lunch their own missiles, with the guidance from the Aircraft Sports team, who took a class about the missiles and how to make their own
missile model. The students eagerly learned the concept and made their own missile model. The students were very excited to launch their missile with the help of their facilitator. We are very proud to announce that out of six children who made their missile models and launched them, Ms. Archana & Mas. Y. Vishwa was selected to participate in the District Level competition.

News from the Sports Desk… HOPE foundation Matriculation High School is established in Kannaginagar, Chennai and is known to be biggest resettlement colony in Asia. Children studying here come from a very difficult background, where abuse of any form is very common. Catering to these kids is a constant challenge as a minor distraction is enough for the children to lose interest in studies. Holistic development of the children is our motto and sports & games play a crucial role in building the students. We are very proud to share a few achievements of the students who participated in the under 14 (junior category) at the district level Kabaddi competition. Girl’s team brought home the Winner’s Trophy and gold medals while boys team had to be happy with the Runners Up trophy and silver medals. This news was captured in the Dinamalar, local newspapers and it gave a tremendous boost to the students who participated in this competition. Apart from Kabbadi, 109 students also participated in a chess competition, volleyball, kabbadi, Kho-Kho, short put, discus throw, jawline, Triple jump, long jump, Hurdle race, and Ball badminton. It was an excellent opportunity for the students to represent the school at the district level in another school premises. All the students displayed an excellent behaviour and sportsman spirit. It was a different exposure for the students.

All this has been made possible only because of your continued support towards the HOPE School.

We strongly believe that, if the energies and the talents of the students of our school is properly channelized, they sure will come out victorious in their lives and your support in providing them a wonderful future, free of any kind of abuse, addiction, crime and violence is very crucial. Once again thank you so much for your generosity which keeps us motivated in continuing to provide quality education and “Bring HOPE .. Change Lives” of the children in need.

HOPE foundation is proud to share that the school it runs in the Kannaginagar slum in Chennai received its third level of recognition to became HOPE foundation Matriculation High School in the academic year 2018-19.


It also witnessed another milestone in the same year when the 1st batch of 24 students appeared for the 10th Board Exams. 23 students passed with flying colors while one boy could not make it due to family problems. School and the teachers are helping the boy in preparing him for a reexam and they are confident that he will make it in the second attempt.


As for the Kannaginagr slum where the school is established is a house for many criminals and is seen as the home of all crimes in Chennai – which means employers refuse to hire anyone residing in Kannagi Nagar, be it for white-collar jobs or menial ones. With no means of livelihood people from this area are now stuck in a cycle of poverty and crime and children here can easily get entangled in this trap


HOPE foundation through the school is making continued efforts to develop the children studying in the school adopt a path to progress through the quality education received at school.


At this time, we take the opportunity to thank each and everyone for supporting us in our endeavor to create robust future where the poverty of these students won’t trail them but lead them to the path of excellence and success.
