An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest

We Shreeya, Soumya and Gilbert Ram are delighted to introduce to you our 93 rock stars of Chennai Corporation school MGR Nagar,Chennai, all set to conquer the world. Our children, a bunch of 5th graders are multifaceted and joyful kids, very eager to learn. They come from communities where parents work for a daily wage. Unequal access to resources, reduces their chances of receiving equal opportunities to learn.

Through the course of our fellowship with Teach for India in the last two months, we have observed most of our kids to be visual and auditory learners.

"The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it from you"-B.B King
We envision our kids to grow up to be intelligent, skilled individuals with a kind heart which highlights the true value of education devoid of rote learning.

We seek your help in enabling  our children immerse themselves in different ways of learning that will foster holistic development and a strong sense of community and social responsibility.

5. External academic and co-curricular opportunities:  Sports equipment, Training and coaching fees, costumes and materials, transport and related logistics, Board games which enable to build vocabulary Rs.1,50,000 (includes resources for whole school)

Dear All,

From the funds we have collected we have begun our endeavours in creating a variety of opportunities for our kids, starting from Karate, dance and music class for the kids. Also the kids are expressing their creativity through painting in the classrooms. They are designing the classrooms their way!!
!
 We have also arranged for a field trip for the 150 5th graders to the Egmore museum theatre on 9th December to explore the museum and also watch a play staged by The little Theatre called “Happy potter and the Egg of Destiny. This we consider will give our kids an insight into the world of Theatre which will really help them find their voice and express themselves as strong personalities. As a follow up to this we are bringing Dramebaaz to our classrooms where kids get to perform on a stage and they build their own scripts. It’s at an initial stage where we are doing ice breaker sessions with them so that they get comfortable with their body and voices.

Over and above our classrooms, we have also utilised the funds to Contribute to the school to build relationships and ensure trust. We have provided two classrooms with projector and screen set up and also bought an incenerator for the Girl children in the higher secondary wing.

Please feel free to visit our school at MGR Nagar to see how our amazing kids are doing and how we can make a difference in their lives.

Thank you for your support and love.

Regards,
CMS MGR Nagar team
