Established in 1926, the Little Flower Convent Higher Secondary School for the Blind is run by the Sisters of the I.C.M. congregation. The school aims at developing the basic skills and talents of wards through holistic education. The facilities provided to students include Walkman, tape recorders and taped lessons and readers. Scribes assist students to prepare and write for their exams. Braille instructors give slow learners special help after class hours. Their other programmes include the once-a-week session for parents of day scholars to help their children at home. Vocal music and Instrumental music - Violin, Piano, Flute, Table and Clarinet are also taught. An outstanding feature is that the school has recorded hundred per cent results in both the X and XII standard board examinations since its inception. The school is aided by the Government of Tamil Nadu and functions under the Social Welfare Department.

Volunteering Requirements

Spoken English for a group of 43 girls (courses - Pre Primary Teachers training & Corporate Secy training). These girls are all Class 12 pass and all of them write English and some of them speak English as well. However, they are very diffident and don’t understand the language at all. They have the will to learn and are a focused lot. Their need is situational English and their TNOU book has an excellent capsule with several situations with questions, role play, interviews, etc. There is a need to flesh these out and create capsules around them. The idea is that we dovetail our efforts with what is taught in Communication Skills at Community College.
