School attuned to nature

Palakkad: Vidya Vanam, an alternate school for tribal and underprivileged children imparts education through songs and games, without books, a formal syllabus or nightmarish exams. “In a happy and fear free environment, education is possible for everybody,” says Prema Rangachary, director of the school located in Anaikatti on the TN border, inaugurated in July 2007. The 270 students attend classes named after fruits {Orange, Mango}, trees {Banyan, Neem, Pipal, Jamun} and rivers {Kaveri, Bhavani, Alakananda, Ganga}. She hosted a National Conference and Workshop on Educating for a Caring Society to glean ideas from educators on how to create an environment of care and concern.
