Visit to CPS School, Thiruvanmiyur

On 20th June 2008, I visited CPS School Thiruvanmiyur. The school is located at 29th cross street, next to Jayanthi theatre in Thiruvanmiyur. There are 153 students in the school and of course not all of them come to school regularly. The students from SC/ST community are alone provided with couple of free uniforms every year.

Upon discussion with the staff on the needs of school, we have come up these requirements mentioned below.

a) Trays for AB learning - 50
b) Bags - 153
c) Uniforms - 153 ( 78 boys and 75 girls) [ The teacher mentioned giving uniform only for those who are in real need would make others feel bad as almost all are from poor family]
d) Files
e) Locks - 10
f) A4 Sheets
g) Water drum

We are still in the process of finalizing the support we can provide. I am also planning to discuss with a few teachers known to me on what support the government provides to these kind of schools. Please watch the space for more updates.
