Adoption of CMS UP School, Punnackadu
As part of the Diamond Jubilee projects of the College, the Department of English, St Thomas College, Kozhencherry adopted CMS UP School, Punnackadu as an extension programme of the Department. The programme was initiated with the view to offer opportunities to the financially backward students from rural background to improve their communication skills and their competence in English. Unofficially launched on 28 November 2013, classes in Communicative English were taken there on a regular basis by the faculty of the Department and they received a very enthusiastic response from the children there. To inculcate the habit of reading in the young minds, an English newspaper (The Indian Express) was subscribed for the school. Books were also donated to the school.
