Spl classes for kids of Perum­bakkam TNSCB ten­e­ments

The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

AD­DRESS­ING a long-stand­ing de­mand among res­i­dents of the Tamil Nadu Slum Clear­ance Board (TNSCB) ten­e­ments in Perum­bakkam, the board has de­cided to con­duct spe­cial classes for stu­dents in the ten­e­ments ap­pear­ing for their tenth and twelfth board ex­ams. The classes would be for three sub­jects- Maths, Sci­ence and English. While the board is now enu­mer­at­ing the num­ber of stu­dents who would be ap­pear­ing for their board ex­ams, the classes would still be con­ducted even if there are ‘as lit­tle as 20 stu­dents,’ will­ing to come on board, of­fi­cials said. A re­cent study by IRCDUC had stated that stu­dents from these set­tle­ments travel as much as 50 kilo­me­tres (one way) to get to their schools that are of­ten lo­cated in their for­mer places of res­i­dence at the heart of the city. “I hope they con­sult with us for tim­ings so that we can at­tend these classes af­ter com­ing back from school,” said San­thosh Ku­mar, a stu­dent of class 12.
