Parents and students of Government school witnessed the programme. Our students taught them how to make paper bags.

Students were taken to Sri Ramashree Academy for Blind. Here the students visited the garden and factory which are taken care by the blind students. They learnt how these students learn dance and computer science. Students visited class rooms and spoke to students and learnt how they learn different subjects.
