Interns- Wonderful Experience.

I am Sophia Malinovskaya from Russia. I came to Mary’s School to do my internship in Teaching English to the rural poor children. It was a great experience to be in Mary`s school as an English teacher. I came to spend 6 weeks teaching children and stayed for more than 2 months. These 2 months time was priceless for me as it gave me a unique experience and also realize my teaching skills . I grew up in my professional skills and I grew up as a person too. I understood that children can teach you too – teach how to be positive and easy-going, how to be grateful with what you have and how to be passionate about new knowledge. I brought a piece of my culture to the classroom and my students did the same for me. And I am so grateful for that. This experience gave me better understanding of Indian culture and its values. I believe that my presence here made little changes for school and its pupils. If my children remember my lessons and that will make them more passionate for learning new things, I`ll be happy to see my aims achieved.

I`ve travelled to some beautiful places in India. I was lucky to have Wendy – other intern from China – as a friend and co-worker for a month. I wish to come back one day again to see the school and my children grown up as persons and students!

Construction has begun!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Construction on completing Narelle Block has started! As some of you may know, this project is imperative to the survival of Mary’s School. For those that do not- the government of Tamil Nadu has passed legislation creating restrictions on private schools (which Mary’s is classified as); the school cannot be in more than one location, as the NGO is currently. In order to renew our license to be recognized by the government of the state, the six new classrooms have to be completed. Then, Mary’s School will be able to conduct all of its classes in one location!
As of yet, we have not received funding for this project. Due to rising parental concerns over the quality of the current classrooms, the Principal and Correspondent had to make the tough decision to pull money from their own pockets. This is a call to anyone who can spare just a little money to help cover the costs! Here are links to more information about the project and easy ways to donate:

Or

Anything helps! Thank you so much for the consideration!
