Established in 1989, the ELGi School in Coimbatore has enabled hundreds of children from low-income families with access to affordable quality education for the past three decades, helping them realise their dreams. The company’s founder-chairman L.G. Varadarajulu, had a vision for sustainable human development, igniting a spark that has over the years grown into what Dr Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director Elgi Equipments calls “a mighty flame, illuminating the lives of hundreds of socially disadvantaged children and their families.”
Living up to its vision of "giving back to society by developing good citizens through holistic quality education at subsidised cost," the ELGi School has reached out to communities around Vellalore area in Coimbatore over the years. It has been fulfilling educational needs by offering scholarships to deserving children from low-income backgrounds.
"Children are individuals gifted with unique talents, capabilities, and aspirations. Quality education empowers students to develop all of their attributes and skills to achieve their potential as human beings and members of society. Activities at the school are supported by a wide range of abilities, attitudes, and socio-emotional competencies. Beyond traditional literacy and numeracy skills, life skills significantly contribute to learning. These are the key aspects of quality education. It will set a high standard and help the students work towards them.”
~ Ganesh KK, Principal, ELGi School
L.G. Varadaraj, the founder-chairman of ELGi, had the objective of sustainable human development. The ELGi School, established in 1989, stands tall on his vision and continues to provide best in class affordable and accessible education for all.
This year, ELGi School expanded its infrastructure and added to its technological capabilities. The school was expanded to include 12 new classrooms, two new exam rooms, a staff room and rest rooms. For the convenience of the students, staff, and parents, a concrete tar road was also built out in front of the school’s entry and exit gates. This was accomplished with the help of the Vellalore Panchayat.
Additionally, Smart Boards were installed in every classroom to facilitate interactive teaching and maximise students’ learning opportunities. In order to make the shift to technology-based teaching and learning as seamless as possible, some pupils received tablets, while 50 laptops were distributed among the teachers.
The students at ELGi School take an active part in a number of academic and extracurricular competitions. This year, our students took part in a variety of district, state, and national events, including the National Children’s Science Congress (NCSC) and the Science Olympiad Foundation Assessments.
With the help of Times of India and Karpagam University, we also set up a programme for school students to help them with their career choices. The seminars on topics like Career Importance, Career Decision Making Steps, Career Decision Making Errors, Career Importance of Skills, Current Skills in Demand, Prevailing Career Trends, and New Age Careers were highly illuminating. The guest speakers provided the students with a broader understanding of their choices for professional or higher education courses. The career counselling and counselling session gave students crucial advice as they approached choosing which career to pursue. For the students, the workshop proved to be a motivating and educational course that would help them seek exciting job prospects and plan their bright futures.
