Dr.T.S.Soundram Vidyalaya Matric School
It was the dream of Dr.T.S. Soundram the founder of Gandhigram that we must be able to provide “Public School Education” even to the children in villages at an affordable cost. On her demise in 1985 it was thought that it would be a fitting tribute to her to start such a school at Gandhi gram, which would also serve as an experimental, model school for Lakshmi College of Education. In this back drop Dr.T.S. Soundram Vidhyalaya was founded in the Lakshmi College of Education Campus and functioned as a supporting system to the Teacher education programme, at Gandhigram.
Till 2002 Dr.T.S.Soundram Vidyalaya was functioning without any formal recognition from Government. It was thought that it would be better to get recognition from the Directorate of Matriculation schools to help the students to get, admission in higher education institutions.
Teaching Learning Strategies:
We believe that by providing a conducive atmosphere for free and happy learning children will learn and attain maximum without any stress and strain. Though the Matriculation Curriculum and text books are followed, it is our aim that children learn with joy by providing opportunities to participate in extra and co curricular activies.
With the help of all those who are interested in children and their welfare a building with 3 class rooms was constructed and with the kind donation from Shri. Narayanamoorth, Smt. Kanaka’s husband “Sumithra Kanaka Block” – the first floor has been constructed. Sri. N.S.V. Chithan, M.P. of Dindigul constituency was kind enough to help us to construct another block with 3 class rooms. We have a very good Library with 1500 books and a well equipped Laboratory, Water and toilet facilities.
As nearly 95% of children come from villages around Gandhigram, a vehicle has been purchased with a loan of Rs.8.75 lakhs for their use.
We are proud to say the children of Dr.T.S. Soundram Vidhyalaya, Matriculation School are spread all over the country as teachers, nurses and technocrats, propagating the message of Gandhigram. It is our earnest hope that the children from Dr.T.S.Soundram Vidhyalaya spread the cult of Gandhian Value system.
