21st December 2021, Thoothukudi: We see children as future innovators and a key resource in nation building. Sterlite Copper sponsored smart classroom accessories at Rajavinkovil TNDTA primary school in Thoothukudi to equip students with advanced academic learning. The prime intention of this initiative is to empower the students of Thoothukudi.
Ms. Prabha Hepzi, Vice President, Village Panchayat inaugurated the event.
By using smart classroom technology and interactive whiteboards, information can be illustrated with the help of photos, maps, graphs, flowcharts, and animated videos. This makes learning more attractive, interesting, and easy to understand. It encourages the ability of students to learn and memorize the topic for a prolonged time.
The technology is set to benefit more than 250 students. Villagers and stakeholders from nearby villages participated in the event.
Also, under Sterlite Copper’s flagship initiative Muthucharam, Tamira Vidhyalayam aims to support the academic aspirations of the youth and nurture future leaders through quality education and scholarship distribution. The students have been given scholarships and are encouraged to pursue their education. A total of 20,000 families will benefit through this initiative.
On the Occasion, Ms. A. Sumathi, COO, Sterlite Copper, said “Giving back is in the DNA of Sterlite Copper, which is still committed to enhance the lives of local communities in Tuticorin.
