The Porur Government School for boys has a higher secondary class for girl students of a specific stream with a strength of 40 girls while an exclusive girls’ school functions in another building.
The Prayas Trust sponsored the construction of toilets for 40 girl students. The poor state of the girls lacking toilet facilities and suffering from health issues due to insufficient water intake was brought to the notice of Mrs. Rajini Kanappan, one of the trustees, who represented this to the other Trustees. Unanimously, they agreed to construct closets and urinals in the school. A cycle stand to park the cycles of students safely has also been provided by the Trust.
The Principal and Mr. Natarajan, the PTA President praised the efforts of the Trust in providing sanitation facility to the girls. The Principal thanked Mrs. Meena Subrahmanyan, the President of Prayas, Mrs. Ezhil Jayakumar, the Secretary and Mrs. Rajini Kanappan, the trustee. All members present were honoured and presented shawls.
