As part of The Hindu – Read and Rise' initiative, 2,000 copies of 'The Hindu In School' were distributed among seven Government and Corporation schools in Tiruppur on Tuesday.

The inauguration of event at Jaivabhai Municipal Girls Higher Secondary School was presided over by A. Karthikeyan, Chairman, A.V.P. Trust Institutions and the initiative was sponsored by A.V.P. College of Arts and Science. K.S. Palanisamy, District Collector and P. Santha, Chief Educational Officer, distributed copies of the newspaper among the students.

Mr. Karthikeyan noted that students from Government schools struggled to gain proficiency in English when they reached college. This initiative was an attempt to improve language skills in students in these schools. “The newspaper is made 100 % for the students,” he said, adding that it covered various topics, such as academics, general knowledge and international affairs.

Mr. Palanisamy said that reading newspapers would help students gain exposure and enable them to make in-depth analysis of various issues. This would help them compete in the real world. He also stressed the role of teachers in taking the newspaper to the students. Ms. Santha said the Department of School Education would support such initiatives.

The seven schools where the initiative is being carried out are Jaivabhai Municipal Girls Higher Secondary School, Palaniammal Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Avinashi, K.S.C Government Boys Higher Secondary School, Nanjappa Municipal Boys Higher Secondary School, Government Higher Secondary School, Kumar Nagar and Government Higher Secondary School in Iduvampalayam.
