Brief History of the School

The Govt Blind School at Vazhuthacaud Thiruvananthapuram is an institution for the visually challenged, with classes from 1 to 7. Hostel facility is provided for girls upto 12th standard(Cotton Hill Girls HSS, TVM) and boys upto 10th standard(SMV Model HSS, TVM). A School Van with the service of a guide is also provided.

On the 3rd of June 1957, Sri Rama Rao, who was the Hon’ble Governor then,inaugurated this school namely “School for the Blind, Deaf and Dumb”. Later for administrative convenience, the school was bifurcated and the Blind School started functioning separately. This institution has provided education and training to more than a thousand visually challenged persons.

Braille language is the teaching medium here. The school has a well maintained Braille Press and Library. A good Computer Lab equipped with Screen Reading Software is also set up here. This school has been distributing Audio Books, ie, CDs
recorded using “Talking Book Recording” facility, to the visually challenged teachers and students all over Kerala. The Audio Books covers a vivid range of subjects ranging from academic text books to world classics.

It is worth mentioning, the service rendered by those highly qualified teachers who identifies the talents and tastes of the students and trains them accoridingly. The Ayas here are specially trained to take care of the students, on the basis of their lifestyles and limitations.

The coaching given from this Special School enables the visually challenged students to develop such personality and skills which are very much helpful for them when they are promoted to higher classes. Computer training using Screen Reading Software, Mobility and Orientation training etc are also the specialties of this school.

Besides academic subjects, the students are especially good at Music, Instrumental Music, Crafts, Sports, Radio Club, Science Club etc. They are performing well in the Youth Festivals and other Cultural Programmes. The presence of former students of this school is notable in the fields of Information Technology, Teaching, and Cricket.

It has been decided to enhance the quality of the already implemented programmes like Karate classes and other physical fitness programmes meant for the wellness of the students.

The students of this school are eligible for almost all the grants and scholarships announced by the Govt.

It is a matter of pride to mention that the presence and guidance of a dedicated PTA has been playing an inspirational role in the overall progress of this school.

The aim of this school is to devise a comprehensive educational programme which helps a student to raise from a ‘visually challenged’ state to a ‘differently abled’ state.
