N.E.T School India


N.E.T School India

Cuerden Church School is very proud of their links with the NET Nursery and Primary School in Tamil Nadu, South India.  We enjoy visits from Wendy, Eileen and Ian who regularly visit the school and tell us all about the children who go there.  The current NET School was opened in 2009 and their aim is to bring education to all the school-age children in the area, whatever their social standing, religious background or gender.

We have learned a lot about children in this part of India and have sent photographs, letters and pictures to our friends at the NET school.  The school council have arranged sponsored events to help provide them with playtime equipment and money to help towards the cost of teachers. 

Latest visit to N.E.T. School

In February 2018, Ian, Eileen, Andrew and Sarah visited N.E.T. school to meet staff and children.  They were excited to see that a new storey is being added to the building so that more pupils will be able to attend.  While they were there, they also arranged art activities with the children.  Have a look at their latest pictures!

Today we presented Andrew Webb, Eileen and her husband with artwork, update letters from each class and additional playground resources from Cuerden Church School.  These will be taken to NET School and given to them as another link with Cuerden Church School.  We are looking forward to their return so we can find out more about the developments at NET School.  We have planned additional events to raise money for NET  School.
