The age old adage goes 'all that is not given is lost'. We have put in the best of our efforts for I.T. literacy project for our students and over the past five years we saw the results in the culmination of a state of the art learning centre. We wish the fruits of our labour should benefit some of the less privileged in the vicinity of our school. The urge to share what we have has become a strong conviction of the school management and we offered our services and facilities free of cost to the nearby Marathi Medium School.
Shri. N.E. Kochewad (Principal), Shri. N. Haridasan (P.T.A. Secretary) and Jacob Thomas (Sr. Faculty) went and met Smt. Asodekar (Head Mistress) of the Marathi Medium Primary School at Kolsewadi to talk about the adoption programme. It was a morale booster for them to work in our collaboration for the improvement of their students. Smt. Asodekar gladly accepted the proposal and took the initiative to motivate her students for gaining computer literacy.
Under the first phase of the adoption project students of 3rd standard and 4th standard from the adopted school are brought weekly for practical in our computer laboratory and our faculty visits that school for presentations and teaching. After a reasonable time of collaboration we plan to donate the school the required equipments so that they can gradually develop the computer literacy project on their own in the long-run.
The initial response was overwhelming. The small kids who came for practical were not willing to leave our lab as they were exposed to some word building exercises with animations. They waved their hands a hundred times as they were leaving and their beaming faces looked like saying we shall come back with many more next time.
The adopted Marathi Medium School is an ATP school (primary) having hardly one hundred students and two teachers. We believe that our interaction with them will make qualitative improvement in the development of that school. This is a team-work and our team consists of our faculty members, a few senior students and of-course the continuous presence of our school management.
