After 30 years, blind school records cent per cent result

All students of Government Higher Secondary School for Blind Girls at Puthur have come out with flying colours in the Plus Two examination. This is the first time in 30 years that the school has achieved cent per cent result.

M. Tamilselvi, Headmistress, said the facilities provided to students were top class. “The students use computers, Braille and audio recorders provided by the government. They have been able to do well solely because of their own efforts and that of their teachers.”

However, the school had only two teachers for six subjects. “Four teachers retired at the same time. We have requested the government for more teachers and will hopefully have them for the next academic year,” Ms. Tamilselvi said.

Also on the demand list was introduction of science group. At present, the school had arts group only.

K. Subalakshmi bagged the first place among the 15 students, scoring 512 out of 600 marks. For her, the result came as a pleasant surprise.

Ms. Subalakshmi said she dedicated her success to her parents and teachers. “I plan to pursue B.A. (History) and later prepare for the Indian Civil Service.”

Her success mantra: study six to eight hours a day; listen to advice of teachers; and revise thoroughly before the examination.

N. Sandhya, who bagged the second highest score, said keeping oneself relaxed was the key. “We did not panic. The school taught us techniques to relax and my friends and I would discuss our course matter to ensure that everything was covered,” she said.
