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.

“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.”
