TIRUCHI: For students sitting for public examinations such as SSLC or Plus Two course, hand-writing forms a core component for ensuring legibility in their papers. But, not many seem to attach a importance to correct their hand-writing, until they enter the high school level.

With a view to sensitise the students to improve their hand-writing, a special summer course on ‘cursive hand-writing and drawing’ has been introduced at the R.C. Higher Secondary School.

For a lot of students, it is difficult to link ‘n’, ‘m’, ‘t’, ‘r’, , ‘s’, ‘f’, and ‘d’ with the following letters. An intensive practice on cursive hand-writing will solve this difficulty.

“Students tend to spend more time on reading their text-books or notes. But, little attention is being paid to their hand-writing,” says A. Jayapal, the Drawing Master of the School, who is the resource-person for the programme

. “We improve the students’ skill in cursive hand-writing. A few tips on slanting strokes are quite enough to motivate the pupils to improve their hand-writing in a week’s time,” he says.

He also imparts the fundamentals of drawing to the students. In all 70 students from Standards I to XII have been undergoing the training. The course which commenced on April 27, will end on May 30.
