Annual Day

31st Annual Day

On 12th December 2020, MNC completed 31 years of service to children in the age group birth to six years, with Intellectual disability and associated conditions providing them Early Intervention. A special day for MNC, since it brings to the front the last thirty one years of tireless and the dedicated work put in by the Founders, Management Team, the Staff, and of course the Children and the Parents. As every year, a theme was selected so that the children could perform on the theme.

This year the theme was “Stay Safe, Stay Healthy”. The cultural program was an audio visual presentation compiled by the teachers from the videos and audios presented by the children, recorded by the parents, in their home environment. The parents sent recordings of the children maintaining the strict pandemic guidelines given by the government that is - washing hands often, using a mask and maintaining social distance. The message come out in the action songs, skits, monoacting and mock conversations with members of the family duly recorded and sent to MNC.

The Chief Guest was Mr. N Kumar, Vice President, Sanmar Group and President of Bala Mandir Kamaraj Trust. Dr. Aruna Rathnam, Executive Director, welcomed the gathering and recorded the dedication and passion with which the parents are managing their children under the stressful condition of Covid 19. They were continuing the training under the guidance of the teachers through an on line 24 hour home based program. Here the teachers, explain to the parents/care givers how the skill has to be taught to the child and the parent in turn becomes the teacher at home. A timetable pinned on the wall of every home keeps them busy in a systematic and structured way. Special education and all therapy sessions are included. This was possible she said due to the strong relationship built over three decades between the teachers of MNC and the parents. That strength sustains the parents through tough times. They talk; take guidance and interact with the teachers on a friendly level. The 24 hour home based program has brought MNC and the parents close and we are managing the situation in a useful, productive and stress free manner.

Mr. N Kumar who addressed the gathering gave a message of hope and support to MNC. He said that many philanthropic individuals and organizations had helped the parents during the pandemic and he thanked all of them. He was very happy to see the videos of the children taken by parents which conveyed their resilience and patience and lauded the efforts of the parents. To manage special children he said needs special efforts and hoped that the following year we will have the physical presence of the parents and children and shall see them perform on the stage. On his part he pledged that he will go that extra mile for MNC, now and in future.

We had the august presence of Prof. P Jeyachandran, Mrs. Madhura Visweswaran, Mr. S Prabhakar Rao and Mrs. Sowbhagyalakshmi, all of them so very close to MNC. A vote of thanks was proposed by Ms. Sarojini.

The day came to an end with the national anthem and light refreshments.
