International Girls in ICT day
 23rd April 2015

Hello All,
We are very happy to inform that our school was a part of International Girls in ICT day event. 
Girl students 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 are sharing some of the pictures from the workshop here. We would like to thank Ms Kamal Peter, Principal S A Nair and our dear students for making this event a huge success.
