Socio Cultural Wing 'SCW'

Family Get-Together

We propose to conduct bi-monthly Family Get-together with a variety of entertainment programmes. All members are requested to participate in the family get-together in full strength, so as to make these programmes vibrant and enjoyable. Communication in regard to such programmes will be sent in advance, as and when, organized.


New Year & X’mas Day Celebrations

“New Year & X’mas Day” celebrations will also be held with the usual ardour and merriment every year.

Annual Day Celebrations

The Annual Day celebrations of the Association will be held every year on a convenient day with usual fervour and gaiety. The celebrations will be accompanied by a get-together as well as a spectacular cultural show to be presented by the members and their wards. Besides, the yummy Kerala delicacy of “Cooked Tapioca served with Fish Curry” (Kappa & Meen curry), which is always relished by Malyalees, will also be available in connection with the Annual Day celebrations. The Sports & Games events as well as the cultural programmes, which could not be conducted along with the Onam celebrations this year in deference to the memory of Late M. P. Mathew, will now be held along with the Annul Day celebrations, 2010.

Kerelapiravi

We also plan to celebrate KERALAPIRAVI day every year with a variety of cultural programmes presented by the members and their wards. Those who are interested to participate in the cultural programmes, may please contact the Hon. Secretary (Arts & Culture) in advance.

Cultural Programmes

The Socio-Cultural Wing of the Association will be making all out efforts to stage Malayalam-based programmes like Dramas, Music concerts, Dance performances, Comedy Shows, Mimicry performances, Magic Shows etc. whenever the concerned troupes from Kerala visit this part of the country. Apart from the above by members efforts will also be made to stage cultural programmes presented by the wards of the members as frequently as possible.

Picnic

As in the past, picnics will be organized during the coming years also. The venue, date and time of the same will be announced in due course.


Reading Room & Library

For the benefit of the members, Reading Room functioning in Kairali School will remain open every day, between 7.00 PM and 8.00 PM. Members are requested to avail this facility to the maximum extent possible. Those who are yet to become members of the Library are requested to do so at the earliest. For distribution of books, the Library will remain open Saturday and Sunday between 7.00 PM and 8.00 PM. A substantial number of new Malayalam books have been added to the stock of the Library in order to make it versatile. Further new books and periodicals can be arranged on getting specific suggestions from members.

Publication

  • We are planning to bring out a periodical magazine - which will be basically a literary journal as well as a news magazine - for the benefit of the members, with the prime objective of fostering the literary talent among the members and their wards. It would also serve as a medium to inspire and motivate budding writers by providing a suitable creative platform. Members are requested to forward their literary creations like articles, short stories, poems etc to the Hon. Secretary (Library & Publication) and the same will be accommodated in the magazine subject to scrutiny and final approval by the Editorial Board. In addition to the above, relevant information regarding the creditable achievements of the members and their wards, important events in their lives, relevant and news-worthy local events etc. can also be incorporated in the magazine.
  • Action is also being initiated to publish a Telephone Directory of the Members stationed in Ranchi as well as the Life Members who have already left Ranchi and settled elsewhere.
  • As in the previous years, a multi-page Malayalam Calendar for the year 2011, printed in large fonts - which would also serve effectively as an Almanac (Panchangam) for all practical purposes - will be published and distributed to the members before commencement of the year.

ONAM Celebrations

ONAM, the national festival of Kerala, will be celebrated every year with traditional gaiety and fervor. Sports and Games will also be conducted in the school campus as part of celebrations and the Best Student Award and other awards will be given away during the ONAM function. As the members are well aware, the traditional ONA SADYA was held on 29th August in connection with the ONAM celebrations of 2010. We are immensely glad to note that the ONAM feast, in which tasteful Kerala delicacies were served, drew overwhelming response from the members. However, on account of the sad demise of Sri.M.P.Mathew, immediate past President of the Malayalee Association, and as a mark of respect to the departed soul, the other programmes pertaining to the Onam celebrations had to be re-scheduled this year. These programmes will now be conducted along with the forthcoming Annual Day Celebrations.

Medical Check-up

  • Services of a Physician / Specialist will continue to be available at Kairali School every 2nd and 3rd Sundays from 11.30 AM to 1.30 PM. Members and their families, who need medical assistance, may avail this facility free of cost. Members are requested to utilize this facility to the maximum extent possible, irrespective of their place of residence in Ranchi.
  • Organizing special medical camps for members and their families and also students of Kairali School for routine check-ups etc is also under consideration.

Malayalam Classes

School Management Committee 'SMC'

Administration

  • Installation of close circuit TV at important/ vulnerable points.
  • Installation of new water-tank.
  • Proper lighting arrangements in class rooms with tube lights.
  • Installation of punching machine.
  • Beautification of school campus.

Academic

We plan to start the following new system / facilities:

  • A system is proposed to be introduced whereby focus will be on instruction with due emphasis on structured and holistic learning, which would eventually lead to create good citizens possessing sound health, appropriate life skills and necessary moral attributes besides scholastic excellence, thereby helping the learners to meet the challenges of life with confidence and equanimity.
  • Acknowledging the fact that parents should be active partners in realizing the potential of their children – the child’s interests, style and aptitude- a system focusing on continual parent-teacher engagement, which is distinctly different from the present parent-teacher meetings, is to be introduced.
  • Appropriate organizational changes are to be brought about in order to accomplish all-round benefits for students and teachers.



  • A system based on sustained professional development of teachers which will empower them with necessary tools to meet the new challenges of continually changing academic environment and will enable them to commit themselves to high academic expectations based on scholastic and co-scholastic aspects of the students’ growth and development, is envisaged.
  • “Vocational guidance & counseling” is widely accepted as a powerful and effective method of helping to bridge the gap between education and the world of work as well as between the school and the society. Keeping this concept in mind, appropriate steps are being considered for making this facility available to the students as an integral part of the instruction.
