New Initiatives at the school this quarter

The Government Tamil Higher Primary School is located at Murphy Town .It was was started in 1924.It has 88 children on roll  and adopted by NGO Ashwini Charitable Trust.We intend to carry out the needs of the school in a phased manner and based on  funding/support we receive from sponsors and Donors.

 INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

 

  • DRNKING WATER FACILITY – Before we adopted the government school the children of the school used to drink water directly from the tap attached to a syntax tank. Tap water is full of germs and it is essential to filter the water to be potable and prevent water borne diseases .The NGO has now provided clean drinking water with a UV ray and carbon water filtration system.
  • WASH BASIN FACILITY - During the summer vacation time we took up some infrastructure development work and put up certain essential facilities such as arrow of 6 taps for the children to wash their hands after drinking their porridge in the morning and lunch in the afternoon.  
  • UTILITY AREA – The area where the children used to wash hands earlier has now been cemented and spruced up for washing used plates, glasses and other utensils in which the midday meal is supplied to the school.
  • UNDERGROUND SUMP - The water to the toilets, wash-basins, utility area and for gardening purposes is now stored in two underground sumps constructed by us.
  • ANGANWADI CENTRE – We have cleared up a classroom which was used for storing unused and broken furniture and have earmarked it for use as an Anganwadi (Day care centre for pre-school children living in the slums around the school) for the area.  The leaks in the asbestos sheets have been repaired with tar sheets.

 VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES

  •  ASHWINI TRUST VOLUNTEERS – From 2nd June onwards, since the school reopened after summer vacations, 7 ACT volunteers have regularly taught the school children spoken and written English using the Lady Bird Series and have followed the Chipper Sage Flow of English Programme. ACT volunteers also teach the children Math skills.
  • GOLDMAN SACHS VOLUNTEERS – On Thursday, 17th July 2014, 17 volunteers from Goldman Sachs worked tirelessly to de-weed the overgrown garden area, mowed the grass, composted and planted saplings of Pungamia, Ashoka , Margosa, Honey Suckle, Jasmine, and Bougainville.  
  •  CISCO VOLUNTEERS – On Friday, 12th September 2014, 8 volunteers from Cisco spent the whole day in the school interacting with both the teachers and the children. The Head-Mistress and all the 5 teachers of the school were taught basic computer skills by the volunteers, while the children were treated to a magic show by Mr. Puttaraju, which they enjoyed immensely. Post-lunch, the volunteers interacted with all the school children by giving them English work-sheets and then conducted a quiz.
  • SYNOPSIS VOLUNTEERS – On Saturday, 20th September, 2014, 124 volunteers from the company ‘Synopsis’ spent their valuable time the whole day at the government school cleaning up the premises, painting the classrooms and the garden compound wall. Four classrooms have been freshly painted in bright colours. The windows of all the classrooms have been repaired and fibre glass sunshades have been fixed to keep rainwater from entering the classrooms. The garden area has been cordoned off with a metal mesh fencing to prevent children/animals from entering. The herbaceous borders have been beautified a red-brick border. We have planted many new saplings of drumstick and neem with tree guards to protect the saplings. The volunteers also planted vegetable patches of radish, cauliflower, mint, chilies and brinjal in the garden area.
