On the path to a bright future in the digital age

Staff Reporter

TIRUCHI: For 37 students from National Child Labour Project (NCLP) special schools that hitherto had no access to computers, the end of this year’s summer holidays meant a sure path to bright future.

From alphabets to greeting card designing, they got themselves familiarised with fairly good amount of computer literacy.

Training

The month-long computer training camp, held at Shrimati Indira Gandhi College for Women, came to a close on Thursday, with distribution of participation certificates.

Speaking at the function, State Transport Minister K. N. Nehru observed that computer training for these students would go a long way in boosting their confidence.

The rest of the students including 1,136 from 35 child labour special schools in the district would be given computer training in phased manner, he added. He distributed certificates to the participants from five special schools in the district.

Collector T. Soundiah, who presided, said that computer has been a crucial skill for the students to compete with their counterparts.
