Student Corner Guideline

The Student Corner section of the Avvai Tamil Center (ATC) website is to encourage ATC students to contribute their original content to ATC. The content can be typed, hand written, drawings, paintings, audio file, video file etc. Parents can help students for recording/typing the content. But the content should come only from the student and it has to be in TAMIL.

 

Each week, ATC will try to showcase couple of student contributions as “Students of the Week” and publish their content in ATC website. Participation to this program is voluntary and has no impact to the regular class teaching, grading etc.
