HM got a request for help in paying teacher salary for Government Higher Secondary school at Akkur, Nagapattinam District. This school has 980 students from 6th to 12th standard. There are 162 PUC Students (11th 180, 12th 182 students) and 6 groups available for PUC students (Maths, History, Bio-Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics and EDA EMR group). EDA EMR - Electric Domestic Appliances and Electric Motor Repairing and Rewinding course - is a special group. Govt provided equipments from Hair dryer to Washing machine to set up a Laborary, which is worth Rs. 2 lakh. These equipments are required for this course. However, govt did not provide any teacher with right skills to continue this group. The interesting news is that 7 students are studying B.E from this group. This is one of the highest record from this school. The Head Master of the school requested for supporting the salary for the teachers. HM trust has agreed to provide support for Rs. 1500 per month for one teacher. India Sudar trust has agreed to provide support for one more teacher for this school.
