Report

We are very happy to inform that our school was a part of International Girls in ICT day event. 25 girl students of classes 7, 8 and 9 of our school participated in the workshop conducted by Oracle Academy spearheaded by Ms Kamal Peter.

It was an enriching and informative session where the girls got an opportunity to interact with some of the women leaders of Oracle Academy. Students were very excited when they knew that more than 100 schools were connected to the workshop session along with us.

The inspiring words of some of the women leaders really motivated our students. We would like to thank Ms Dipika kashyap, Ms Anne Marie, Mr Krishna Sistla, Ms Lakshmi, Ms Sujatha for their inspirational talk, sharing their vast experience and enlightening the students about the wide ocean of career opportunities available in technology field.

Students had a wonderful hands on experience creating an interactive game using ALICE programming environment.The students thoroughly enjoyed the hands on session as you can see from the testimonials posted below.

We would like to thank Ms Kamal Peter, Principal S A Nair and our dear students for making this event a huge success.

“23rd April was one of the memorable experiences. In connection with International ICT day for girls, we had a workshop conducted by Oracle Academy. We had a really wonderful experience. The leading women of Oracle Foundation also spent their time with us through video conference. Through this workshop, we learnt that girls shouldn’t back out of IT. We are supposed to grab each and every opportunity. We were really inspired by the talks from leading women of Oracle Ms. Lakshmi Venkatakrishnan (Software development Direction and Sujatha Madhav Chandran (Principal Sales consultant).

I would llike to thank our Principal for giving us this opportunity. I would also like to thank Nalini ma’am and Babitha ma’am for guiding us throughout this session.”
