CHENNAI: Recalling its dedicated service and its many students who went on to become achievers, the latest being IAS officer Beno Zephine, the Little Flower Convent for the Blind celebrated its annual day with great fanfare.

Proving that academic excellence can come to them too, the top students received awards at the ceremony. Students with academic excellence in the coming year will receive special prizes from the National Institute for the Visually Handicapped (NIVH). “Textbooks will be printed in Braille by the government from the next academic year so that all Tamil Nadu schools get free textbooks. ‘Smart canes’ that come with laser and special recorders will be given to academically sound students,” said Krupanandam Yasarapudi, Regional Director of NIVH, who was a special guest at the event.

The inaugural event was followed by cultural programmes. Showing that vision is not a factor in synchronisation and rhythm, the blind girls of the senior section put up a bharatanatyam performance to a film song, and their perfect coordination drew cheers from the audience. The school choir sang the popular ‘Waving Flag’ with much enthusiasm, with an in-house keyboardist and drummer. The students put up a play on socially relevant issues like alcohol abuse.
