I am Jalaja kumari working as a Headmistress in GMS.Chittar (UDISE No. 33300700604). Sree Vishnu karthik’s family was residing near our school and were very poor. Even then they send their elder son Sree Vishnu Karthick to “Bharath Primary School” at Pechipparai. He was studying in II Std. Since they were unable to pay the monthly fees in the school, so he stopped going to school and stayed at home. He used to come to the shop nearby our school and one day I asked him why he was not going to school. The boy replied that his parents were unable to pay the fees, so he stopped going to school.
I informed this to the BRTEs who came for the survey. Along with the BRTEs, I went to Sree Vishnu Karthick’s home and talked to his parents. His mother said, “since we were not educated we want our son to be educated in English medium school”.
We told the parents that in GMS Chittar we follow English medium and advised them to enroll their child. They happily admitted their child in our school. Now he is very happy and comes to school regularly. Special coaching is being given through NRSTC centre. Now he studies well. His parents are also very happy because the boy studies well without paying any school fees and van fees. They also enrolled their younger son Vino Karthi in I Std. His parents frequently come to the school and enquire about their children’s achievement.
