Students of Meenakshi College for Women have been visiting Single Teacher Schools every year for the last seven years. The visit is aimed at providing a learning experience for the children of STS. The children learn a lot by interacting with the college students and the lecturers accompanying them. This occasion also serves as an opportunity for the urbanized college students to know about the villages and the children growing in such a rural environment.
This has been an annual phenomenon for the last seven years and this year too around 2500 students, along with their departmental heads, visited the Single Teacher Schools at more than 30 villages on 11 and 25 September 2016.
The college students spent the whole day interacting and playing with the children. The STS children showcased their talents of reciting texts, slokas and other lessons to their visitors. They also attempted to solve the puzzles posed by the college students. They also played games like Musical Chair, etc. While leaving the villages, the college students gifted stainless steel tiffin boxes and mats to the STS children and teachers.
Our gratitude to Dr.K.S.Lakshmi, Secretary of Meenakshi College for Women, for supporting us for the seventh consecutive year by organizing the visit of her students to our village centres.
