The SVCE Alumni from the 1985-89 batch have been sponsoring the tuition fees for a group of Girl students from their Second year to Final year based on their financial need and good academic performance in the first year of study, to enable them to carry out their studies without worrying about the financial requirements. The 1985-89 batch has also decided to support the candidates beyond the classroom by arranging internship and by even providing them with job opportunities, if found suitable. They have also planned to increase the number of scholarship recipients from two to four.
Congratulations to Ms. Anuja. J, II Year CHE, Ms. Mohanakrishna Gopika. V, II Year CSE, Ms. Monica. R, II Year ECE and Ms. Vidhya. N, II Year ECE for being the second batch of students to avail the scholarship instituted by the SVCE 1985-89 batch.
The Student Council pioneered an initiative called “Plant a Sapling” in our campus and distributed 200 saplings to the first year students.
Each student tied a Rakhi to the sapling, thus creating a bond with the sapling and also took an oath to grow it with care. This was done in association with an NGO called Keezhvanam.
Unlike regular sapling distribution events where there is no follow up on the state of the saplings, this time, each student shared the location (latitude, longitude) of the plant and will also post updates regarding growth of the plant over time to the NGO, through a seperate whatsapp group created for the same.
