This TN Headmistress Spent ₹2 Lakh From Her Own Pocket So Students Could Have Smart Classrooms

A corporation school in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, will now introduce a web-based virtual learning environment to their students, thanks to the institution’s headmistress.

The Corporation Middle School in Beema Nagar inaugurated its first online smart classroom on Monday – a first-of-its-kind initiative in the city.

The headmistress of the school, D Rajarajeswari, had a special role in bringing the facility to the school.

Shelling out the entire cost of ₹1.83 lakh from her own pocket, the headmistress’ dedication towards enabling the kids to have a better learning experience is commendable. “The new facility will kindle curiosity and thinking ability among the children,” she told TOI.

In the academic year 2015-16, the school enrolled just 56 students. However, with the introduction of smart classroom – an application-based learning technique that is prevalent in most urban schools – the school saw a threefold increase in the number of students.

“We realised that parents wanted their children to learn new things. Parents opt for private schools due to the facilities available there. After we introduced the smart classroom, we found the numbers increasing in our school,” said the headmistress.

After the number of students reached 165 this year, the school decided to upgrade the facilities and introduce an online classroom. Equipped with a smart board that comes with a projector and speakers, the facility also has a computer with internet that will enable the teachers to download relevant content. And the facilities under the awesome initiative don’t stop here.

“We have tied up with a government school at K Paramathi in Karur, which has the same facility through which classes are streamed live through Skype. They will now get an opportunity to interact with students in other schools, sitting in their classrooms,” added Rajarajeswari.

With dedicated institution heads like these, who take so much interest in their students’ education, more children will be inclined to participate.
