Radha Swamy Centre for Excellence opens. Students of three Sivaswami group schools will make use of training in indoor sport, robotics, performing arts and more

What was once a school on West Circular Road in Mandavelipakkam is now a ‘centre for excellence’.

On Monday evening ( December 6), Tamil Nadu governor R. N. Ravi formally opened the Radha Swamy Centre for Excellence. He unveiled a plaque to mark this milestone and was taken around the facility, where each floor is dedicated to an activity.

One floor for science learning, one for table tennis, carrom and chess, one for music and dance and arts, one for coaching in competitive exams and one space for learning Indian traditional games – all meant for the 3000 plus students who study at the three schools managed by the National Boys and Girls Education Society in Mylapore.

The schools being – Lady Sivaswami Ayyar Girls School. Sir Sivaswami Kalalaya Senior Sec School and Sivaswami Kalalaya Hr Sec. School.

Students of these schools, will in turns, be taken to this centre to attend classes though in some cases, the coaching will go on into late evening – in table tennis for example.

Says Srinivasan K Swamy, president of the society that manages these schools and who has funded the remake of this space and dedicated it to his mother, Radha Swamy, “Our schools offers music and dance and sports but we want our students to excel, to aim high and this is the place for it.”

Monday’s event was co ordinated by the heads of the three schools, senior teachers.  The society’s committee members and the Swamy family members attended the launch event, held in the space meant for performing arts.

Society treasurer S. Sridharan and secretary Vatsala Narayanaswami were on the dais and spoke on this occasion.
