School Walls Painting – A bunch of art enthusiasts from NGO ‘Hongirana’ repainted the school walls with some beautiful pictures. This has made the school look very lively and blends well with the wonderful greenery within the campus.
Tuition Classes – Extended tuition classes during weekends/holidays for the alumni (above class 7) of GHPS have started in full swing. Subjects covered include : Maths, Phys, Chem, Bio, Accounts, Economics and Computer Skills. About 90 students in total (from class 8 till PUC2) are attending these classes. For class-8 Maths/Phys, an alumni from GHPS – Pavankalyan , who is now pursuing his M.Sc in Physics, is conducting the classes. For the other subjects, we have experienced teachers from private schools/colleges imparting much required additional coaching to the higher standard students.
Deskit Distribution – In collaboration with another NGO ‘The Bodhi Tree’, students of GHPS were provided with a novel school bag cum reading/writing pad (Deskit), that will greatly help them in carrying their school materials as well as supplement to read/write in an ergonomic manner.
AnandaYana Run – About 15 alumni students of GHPS participated in a 5K running event organized by ‘Runners High’ to raise funds for supporting children from disadvantaged backgrounds. This event was an eye-opener for the participants as they got to mingle with many other runners and experienced first hand the atmosphere of being part of a social cause event.
Farewell Event – Prior HM of GHPS (Mr. Gangajanappa) was promoted and transferred as HM to another neighbourhood school. The Asst HM of GHPS (Mr. G Venkatswamy) retired after serving 20+ years in the education department. A joint (TCF/Govt) farewell event was organized for the benefit of these two gentlemen. The event was attended by neighbourhood school principals, Govt education dept officials, SDMC members and TCF. We acknowledged the immense support received from the outgoing HM / Asst HM and presented a small momento on our behalf. TCF’s contribution to the growth of GHPS school was also acknowledged and Srini was honored during this event.
