TIRUCHI: BHEL, Tiruchi, on 12 Jan 2012 handed over the new school building worth Rs.33 lakh it had constructed under Corporate Social Responsiblity (CSR) at Devarayaneri hamlet of Thirunedunkulam Panchayat, to the school management.

Dedicating the four classrooms, and two rooms for headmaster and the staff, the Executive Director of BHEL, Tiruchi, A.V. Krishnan, expressed the PSU’s commitment to promote education among children living below poverty line. He advised the school children to progress through education and enable their peers to integrate themselves into the society.

This is the second building the BHEL had provided for the school. In 2008, BHEL had constructed a building with four classrooms, P.Nainar, General Manager – Human Resource, said.

S.S. Pillai, General Manager, Public Relations and Administration; S. Mahendran, Secretary, Thiruvalluvar Elementary School; D.Revathi, vice president, Thirunedunkulam Panchayat, who belongs to the Narikuravar community; and other senior BHEL officials, including P.Manoharan and T.Ramanathan, Additional General Managers, and A Antony, Convenor, CSR project, BHEL, Tiruchi, took part.

Though the school was functioning since 1980, it was only after construction of the first building by BHEL in 2008 that students evinced interest in education, Mr. Mahendran said. For carrying out CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities, the unit had allocated Rs.3.5 crore during 2011-12.

The initiative at Devarayaneri qualifies the Thiruvalluvar Elementary School, a government-aided institution, to apply for middle school status. A majority of the students in the school belong to the Narikuravar community.

According to a release, the other initiatives include construction of a compound wall at the Government ITI, Thiruverumbur; and class rooms for Government Girls HSS for the Blind, Puthur.
