Maithri Educational & Charitable Trust


JAN-APR 2022

Maithri wishes "A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR" to all the students, parents, donors, patrons and volunteers.

In Jan-Feb, students are still attending online classes and awaiting the impending decision on "in-school" classes from the state government.

The delayed book fair finally opened in the city as the local government eased Covid restrictions in late February. The Founder Trustee, Mr. R.Sridhar, and about 20 students visited the book Fair in Chennai. The students were happy to view and enjoy a much-awaited book fair and a mighty chance to meet their friends in person. The students thoroughly enjoyed this short trip. Murugan, father of Maithri student was provided with a cart for roadside clothes-ironing. That was his livelihood which was shattered by a wayward drunk driver. Maithri came to his rescue and provided a cart to resume his profession quickly.

The results of professional and other courses were released in March. Satya, a long time Maithri student completed his Bachelors in Engineering and Aishwarya, a long time Maithri student as well, completed her Allied Corse in Medical Technology this year.

As the announcement for Class XII board exams to be conducted in April/May timeframe was made for both Central and State Boards, mock-exams were conducted by senior Maithri students for the Examination candidates. The mock exams were attended eagerly by students and they fared very well. Presence of peers and friends and willing teachers and assistants encouraged all the students to put in their best efforts.

Ishwarya's success story of getting into the Masters' program in Ramachandra Medical College is the highlight for this month. She has been studious and a consistent topper since kindergarten times despite her family's financial situation. Her academic brilliance in Bachelor's degree earned the entrance test to become first out of more than 100 people for her next level program. Maithri worked with the crowd funding website Milap and could raise her fees within India and help her realize her dreams.

We had Navaratri celebrations of 9 days festivities that showed the creativity in doll arrangement. The students showcased a traditional dress ramp-walk and all participants were treated to a dinner and a gift on Saturday 30th September.

In the month of December, the auspicious tamil month, "Margazhi" was celebrated with "Thiruppavai" competition for the students. 100-130 Students from various schools competed this year. The students enjoyed reciting verses and the winners were announced. A silver coin was presented to winners and a momento for all participants and invitees, organizers and judges. Big Thanks to Mr. Chandrashekar, SAMAS Engg and Swamiji, Ramakrishna High School, North Branch for providing the large classroom for this function.
