CHENNAI: To make its students adept in curricular and extracurricular activities, Velammal Matriculation School, Mogappair, has launched a year-long programme to train students from class III to VIII in extracurricular activities.

The inaugural of the programme was held on the school campus on Saturday.

The 45-minute event was presided over by playback singer P Susheela, who gave a speech on the importance of music as an art and the ways to practise.

She also distributed badges to the coordinators.  This was followed by dance and music performances by the students.

Varsha V, a faculty member of the school, said that the programme aimed at creating avenues in extracurricular fields for students who had already been performing well in inter-school cultural programmes.

Students from classes III to VIII could enrol for a year-long programme in any activity of their choice among classical and western dance, carnatic music, fine arts, aero modelling and robotics, and sports.

“It is compulsory for every student to enrol in one of the activities. As opposed to the usual extracurricular classes every week, specialised classroom training will be given on the art form of their choice every day and this is well within the school timings. Special teachers will be appointed to train them,” she added.
