On February 14, 12 RFPIO team members took a short trip to Veerasamy Mudaliar School, a government school not too far from the Coimbatore campus. Our goal? Brighten up the barren walls with whimsical paintings that simultaneously entertain and educate.
Our hope is that the paintings will not only create a lively, positive learning environment but will also fill the students’ brains with important information—even as their eyes wander around the classroom.
The headmistress, teachers, and students were thrilled with what we accomplished in just two hours! Over the next three weeks, our team will return to the school in shifts, with the goal of filling the walls with as many paintings as possible.
We can’t wait to see what the classroom looks like when we’re done!
