Around a week and a half back a state wide effort was taken in Tamil Nadu in order to trace out-of-school children in the state. The initiative turned into a huge success with over 1500 students already enrolled back in the schools. The efforts of the teachers involved in the project were appreciated by M. Subramanian, at a function organised to rename the Corporation Schools to Chennai Schools, for succeeding in convincing parents to get theirchildren admitted to schools.
The children who have been admitted to the school include 528 child laborers who were rescued last year and some youngsters who used the night shelter for streetchildren. Corporation Commissioner Rajesh Lakhoni, Deputy Commissioner of Education M. Balaji and Deputy Mayor R. Sathyabhama also participated in the function.
