One more school joins the inclusive school movement!

At the playground, a group of boys watched the inclusive playground with wonder. They smiled and said they would help children with special needs play in the playground.

It was a special day as Satya Special School inaugurated an inclusive playpark and classroom at Government High School Thirubhuvanai. Mr. Dinakar, the State Project Director of Samagraha Shiksha Education Department, and Mr. Saravanan, Co-ordinator, Samagraha Shiksha Education Department, were guests of honour.

Mr. Dinakar delivered the special address and said there are 30 children with special needs in the school. Mr. Saravanan said children with disabilities who are unable to leave their homes should also be registered in the school to experience the atmosphere of an educational institution, even if they come in only once in 10 days.

Mrs. Chitra Shah, director of Satya Special School, delivered the keynote address, and said there are 26 million children with disabilities in India who are isolated and must remain at home, and in Pondicherry, there are 30 thousand people with disabilities. Mr. Srinivasan, in charge of the school, delivered the felicitation address. He said that the playground and the classroom should be used by all.

Teaching and learning materials used for special education such as dioramas and educational toys were handed over and the vote of thanks was delivered by a teacher at the school.
