When the newspapers come to our class, a smile When the newspaper comes to our class, smiles comes on our faces. Our class students talk to each other to find out each and every answer to the questions you ask in the paper. I love the way you give catchy headlines.

The Hindu’s student edition is like Ugadi chutney because it gives the all the information on politics, crime, current affairs and even has cartoons. It tells us everyday about the importance of TODAY:
T – The
O – Opportunity to
D – Do
A – Any work better than
Y – Yesterday
I am implementing this principle by improving day by day.

The Hindu's school edition is incomparable. The news in it makes students like us stay aware of current affairs. ‘Face to Face’ is my favourite. It helps us know facts about many personalities and their achievements. Sudoku and quick crossword are very useful.

The Hindu in School is very useful for me. In my opinion, it’s brief and informative compared to other newspapers. I love the statescan page because we are able to know some bits of information that is happening in and around our country.

The Hindu in School helps us improve our IQ level and vocabulary. We compete with each other to solve the rebus and maths puzzles and we really love the storyboard section.Deepthi and Kirthiga Devi, Class 9

The school edition gives a great opportunity to students to compete with students all over the world. It helps us improve our language skills. The first time my name appeared in the paper, my parents, friends and teachers were happy and appreciative. I felt proud of myself.

School: a place to learn values
School is not only a place for learning but also a place where character formation of children through value-based education should be given importance. But do schools today find time for this? We know that people are judged by their character, words and actions. Education must contribute to the overall development of a child.
Teachers and the school authorities should have collective responsibility in making sure that their students get value-based education. Teachers should be careful when they handle their students. Scolding students for trivial mistakes will not bring any desirable change. Teachers should understand students' psychology. They should realize that fear should come from respect and not respect from fear, which is momentary.
The importance of character formation and value based education has been overshadowed by a mere focus on the thought of 'accumulating marks'. What is the use of marks if our students' character is unacceptable? How can we trust a student who always lies to his/her teachers? How can we accept the behaviour of a student who behaves rudely and arrogantly towards his/her elders?
Our society needs people with values and we have to start right at school. We have to start achieving this through our pupils.
