Weekly classes in dance, music, band, and painting for differently abled students
Differently abled students in the limits of the South Block Resource Centre (BRC) under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan will now get opportunities to nurture their talents just like other children.
Classes in dance, music, band, and painting will be held for these students once a week at the Sathram School in the Fort area. The classes will be held as part of the Cultural Organisation of Differently Abled Children (CODAC).
The inauguration of CODAC at the South sub-district level was held at the Sathram School on Saturday.
CODAC, inaugurated at the district-level a few months ago, will be implemented at the block resource centre level for better implementation of various initiatives.
The Sathram School already has an autism centre, the first to be set up in the State. Students coming there and differently abled students studying in various schools under the South BRC will benefit from the training.
Nearly 50 students have been identified and screened.
S. Unnikrishnan, Corporation Education standing committee chairperson, inaugurated the event. Prasanth Chandran, who has entered various record books overcoming various health issues, opened the band and music training.
Cine actor Joby inaugurated the dance and painting training.
Block Pogramme Officer A. Najeeb, SSA District Project Officer B. Sreekumar, school headmistress S. Pushkalakumari were present.
