Students of Chennai schools might soon find their classroom activities and projects, the subjects of household chatter. In an attempt to make the most of the best practices in Chennai schools and achievements of its students, the Chennai Corporation has decided to have periodical newsletters exclusively on the schools.

The initiative taken up by the Education Department of the Chennai Corporation is an attempt to ensure that model practices and events in the schools do not die down within the classroom walls, but are emulated by other schools and education experts. It will also provide a forum for the students to bring out their unique projects, achievements in competitions and their contributions in various fields into the public domain.

The initiative is being launched by the Corporation with the assistance of Everest Edusys and Solutions Private Limited which has been providing the QED Science Galleries in the Corporation Schools. “We hope to bring out the first edition of the newsletter soon after Pongal. A small editorial team will take up the input from all the schools and put it together in the paper. The publication and distribution will be done by the Chennai Corporation,” sad the Vice President of the Business Development of Everest Edusys and Solutions, Uma Mahesh.

According to the tentative pattern, the newsletter will have four pages and will be bilingual, with Tamil and English. One page will have photo feature meanwhile the others too will have many pictures and less test so that parents and others from any background is easily able to comprehend the text.

Officials said that the target was publish the newsletters at least on a fortnightly basis. “We hope that through the students it will reach the parents and the public also. This will require around a 1 lakh copies of the newsletter. We hope to bring it out at least once fortnight,” said a senior official with the Chennai Corporation’s Education department.

The Chennai Corporation will soon have six more school science galleries in the city, bringing it a total of 10 science galleries in the city and to one science gallery per zone. These are to be opened within this academic year.
