THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: For four days, the Poovar Government Hospital turned a workplace for the nearly hundred students and NSS volunteers from the Government Polytechnic College, Neyyatinkara. Many of the electric equipments which had been striking work for some time now were given a new life by the students. They even set up electrical wiring works in a room so that it could be used as a laboratory.

It was under the ‘Community development through polytechnics’ scheme that the students ventured out of their college campus and turned electricians at the hospital.

"We conduct various skill development camps and schemes for students. This was one such,’’ S Geetha, Principal of the College, said.

It was the students studying for welding, electrician, plumbing and sanitation who took to the community service. They were supported by the NSS volunteers of the college, teachers, non-teaching staff, Parassala block panchayat and Chappath Santigramam at the camp.

"As part of the camp, the hospital equipments which were lying idle were converted into useful items. We did the painting too,’’ said a member of the College staff.

After the four days, the students gave back a renovated hospital block to the authorities. The concluding ceremony was attended by members of the Parassala block panchayat.
