Three sisters have put their monies together to fund a full-fledged computer classroom at Rani Meyyammai Girls School in R. A. Puram.
All of them, now residing outside the city, studied in this school. They chose to make this donation “to provide the best facilities that enable students to excel and bring laurels to the school and maintain the standards that used to exist in our time.”
The three wish to remain anonymous but they have dedicated this classroom to their late father, G Sundaram. Their mother, Parvatham made it to the formal opening of this space which was held a fortnight ago.
The 21 PCs fitted with software, are for students of the Plus Two level. Though the school had a computer lab it was outdated. Since computer science is part of the Plus Two studies, teachers here said the new facility is welcome.
Headmistress Amudha said she was hugely grateful to the three sisters for this handsome donation.
She says she communicates with the active school alumni, most of whom studied here in the 1960s and 70s, on ways to support the school.
The school now wants to upgrade its library – the shelves are old and the books have yellowed badly. The headmistress says she welcomes donors to fund the library improvement. They can contact the HM’s office.
“We have library hour for students so the library is well used,” said Amudha, the headmistress.
