Motivation for SYMA growth students @ Mind Fresh

SYMA has been in the field of Social service since 1977 ~ for the past 4 years, our initiative in the field of Education ‘SYMA Growth’ has been prospering.  SYMA Growth – a fullfledged tuition centre, is our  cherished  initiative in educating the economically poor children, uplifting their standards and making them responsible citizens.

In the initial years, we tried our hand in helping the students of our locality by guiding them and offering them tuition classes nearer their examination.  Education is best imparted only by trained teachers and there needs to be professionalism in that.

We realized this by experience and decided to start our own tuition centre.  Presently it is aimed at providing tuition for those appearing for Public Examination.  Now, we have 4 sections : X Std – Tamil medium; X Std – English medium; +2 Science Group and +2 Commerce group – each having 30 to 35 students.  The tuition centre functions at NKT Boys School, daily from 6 to 8 pm; 2 hours every day ~ with two subjects for each class daily.  SYMA pays for the infrastructure, pays reasonable remuneration to those taking classes, has a full-time coordinator and project cost is around Rs. 4 lakhs per year.  Last year and the year before, our students fared extremely well in the Public examination.

This year also, the SYMA Growth is going on well.  For our progress and good quality education imparted to students, we are ever thankful to the NKT National Boys High School, Mr S Venkatadri, HM and all our teaching staff including :  Mr. Senthil Murugan, Mr. KS Venkatakrishnan, Mr.Kannan, Mr. T Srinivasan,  Mrs KN Vijayalakshmi,  Mrs Subashini, Mrs. Lakshmi Arulalan,  Mrs. Gandhimathi, Mrs. Devasena, Mrs. Vijayakrishnan, Mr MK Sridharan, Mr. Shahul Hameed, Tamilvanan  – for their care and attendance. Our Coordinator Mrs Thara and the team who assist her also deserve special appreciation.

Besides education, we have plans for the overall personality development of the students too.  On 30th Nov. 12, students at SYMA Growth had a different experience as they listened and participated in a motivational training thanks to our member SR Ragunathan.

Ms Kirtanya Krishnamurthy, a young speaker, founder of Mind Fresh was at the school delivering an inspirational talk to our students. MindFresh specialises in training the minds of our young population to skillfully handle their emotions, relationships, skills, attitudes, habits and to forever strive for excellence in their inner world as well as the outer.  It was an hour when the students heard with rapt attention to the positive thinking and keeping the mind without prejudices intricately woven into their minds with the help of some good videos too.   For the students this was a very different session and they thoroughly enjoyed the inspirational training.

A mid-year review through  full-fledged tests is underway. We have been striving for uplifting the society by providing quality education to lesser privileged children. Our efforts are well supported by many of you.  Recently, ITC provided 100 long note books which were distributed to students.  We place on record our thanks to Ms Asma Fathema of ITC and our member Mr TP Srikanth for this.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
