Update on Nagapattinam tuition class

Here is an update on the Nagapattinam tuition classes. The Head-Master who volunteered to teach, is not able to come regularly. He comes occasionally. This year, around 20 students are attending the tuition classes. It is finding it difficult to teach all the classes for a single teacher.

We have sought the help of one lady teacher working in a nearby English medium school. Mr. Ravichandran and this lady teacher are taking classes for 2 hrs each. One person covers classes up to sixth and another covers 6th to 10th std. We have paid Rs. 1200 (Rs. 600 each) towards the salary for these teachers.

The teachers are conducting tests every week, so that the students study regularly. The students requested for notebooks for these tests. The teacher has also asked for hand-writing notebooks for the students so that the students can practice writing better. There is a girl studying 11th standard, she is in need of accountancy notebook. We have provided notebooks worth Rs. 500 for the students.
