November / December 2017

November 2017 – Thank you Wipro Cares! 

November was a wet but happy month at Vanavil. Rains came heavily towards the end of the month, but only after some fun moments.

Wipro Cares Chennai had conducted a foodgrains and clothing drive for Deepavalli, and followed it up by organising a van to deliver supplies from Chennai all the way to Nagapattinam. 22 boxes arrived on 21st November and were much appreciated. Thank you Wipro Cares!

In November, the 5th standard did some “action learning” on health by running a primary care clinic.

December 2017 was action packed!

Another hightlight was that we got a new washing machine!

Thanks to our kind supporters, kids can wear clean dry clothes more often, and bedsheets won’t have to moulder.

December 25th Excitement

On the 25th, Vanavil had a double-fest. First, the kids celebrated Christmas with a special programme, with students performing, singing, and dancing for the assembled school, and a Christmas sweet for all the kids.

Finally, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, our students had two special meals, one in memory of Mr Sridhar and one celebrating the birthday of our donor’s daughter Mahima.

 

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful 2017, and look forward to a great 2018 as well.
