This school has everything to make its students proud

For the last one year, students of Corporation Middle School at Bhagavathipuram in Tiruverumbur could derive a high sense of self-esteem, for good reasons too.

After moving into the new building constructed by the City Corporation in November 2016, the students began enjoying the utility of almost all the facilities that their counterparts in private schools enjoy. Be it airy classrooms, ceiling fans, library, computer lab, science lab, and toilet and water facilities, the facilities can easily match the best in private schools.

In fact, the students are given quality English training and are encouraged to take part in competitions. They even took part in a programme aired by All India Radio. The students are being trained in functional skills, like filling up deposit and withdrawal forms pertaining to post office and banks, Headmistress Alamelu Mangai said.

The school, say the teachers, is now on a sound footing to ramp up enrolment. The institution has the capacity to double the student strength from the present 155, according to parents.

It was started in 1975 as a Panchayat Union Elementary School in a building with tiled-roof and minimum facilities. In the absence of toilets, the students used the open space abutting the railway track outside the campus. Now, the school has a compound wall and the gate is kept closed. There are adequate number of toilets. The students are not allowed outside during the school hours.

The maintenance of the toilets is ensured through posting of a conservancy worker by the civic body on a permanent basis.

Now, parents are a relieved lot. The only request they intend to make to the City Corporation is for provision of land in the vicinity for a small playground.

Parents belonging to economically poor background save not less than Rs. 25,000 a year by sending their wards to their school since books, notebooks, uniforms, besides noon meal are provided free of cost. More importantly, the ambience easily matches that of a private English medium school.
