Lourdhu Annai Girls Higher Secondary School, Madurai Review
The school was started in the early 70s keeping in mind the education of the backward areas. Hence the management chose the right area near the RC Church, K.Pudur. Then time the literacy rate of women was very low and this lit the foundation for a schools especially for girls.
The location of this educational institution is highly suitable for education as it is away from the noisy traffic in the city. Even though the location is thickly populated stampedes have never taken place as the students are regularized by the separate team while entering and leaving the school
Partially aided by the state government, the school is being run by the management under sisters of Roman Catholic.
Since it is a government aided school, the cost of education is not an obstacle to hinder the childrens literacy. Quality of education along with this, gained popularity for this school which resulted in huge growth in numbers counting to 1600 students and around 60 teaching and non-teaching staffs.
Special library is there inside the campus with good infrastructure. Books of various categories like Art, Culture, general Knowledge, Dailies, weeklies, Novels, Competitive Exam guides are shelved properly in an orderly manner.
Once a week students are taken to this library during the school hours. Self interested students can make use of this facility after the school hours also.
Computer Education :
Keeping in mind the need of technological information to the students, separate computer class room has been arranged and all the basic subjects.
Games is the name of a period in the weekly time table in order to encourage the physical strength of the students. Very good playground is maintained for field events and track events.
Extra-Curricular Activities :
Constant encouragement and coaching are provided so that the students can grow physically and mentally. This is achieved by means of Yoga, Karate, Meditation, Music, Dance especially BharathaNatyam, Essay writing, Speech practice etc. Results are achieved in line with the quality coaching.
All important days like Republic Day, Independence Day, Childrens Day, Teachers Day, Diwal, Christmas, Ramzan, Sports Day and Annual Day are celebrated with cultural events. This relaxes the mind of the students and give a new spirit in their education for the next session of months on the go.
A part of the ground located at the rear gate has been allocated for parking the vehicles of students and staffs. To safeguard these vehicles from damages due to sunlight, a better shed has been laid under which these vehicles are parked.
Quality mixed discipline feeds the students with standard education that leads the school to get entered in the education toppers every year after the announcement of Public exam results.
Leema achieved her state first rank in standard X Public examination conducted by the state government.
