Empowering students of G.C.E. A/L -2014 in selected Zones in Eastern Province
Venue: Bt/ Vincent Girls’ College
Bt./ Thambilivil Maha Vidyalayam
The term student empowerment was deliberately chosen to emphasize the importance of educating all students to become aware of the syllabus, the method of answering questions, answering practical questions for the G.C.E.A/L. This goal can be achieved by encouraging students to work together, practice using their skills, and develop their own leadership qualities.
Considering the needs of the children in Thirukkovil and Batticaloa Zones, Aaruthal in collaboration with the Thondamanaru Field Work Centre organized a seminar for the G.C.E A/L Students facing the exam in August 2014 in Batticaloa and Thirukkovil Zones. The Field Work Centre helped to arrange the resource persons who are experts in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Combined Mathematics to conduct the seminar and agreed to meet the expenses.
The seminar was conducted on 16th and 17th in Batticaloa and in 18th and 19th in Thirukkovil.

- Give awareness to the students on how to answer the questions
