CHENNAI: For the students of Lady Andal Venkata Subba Rao School, Chetput, it was totally a new experience. A group of students took three concepts and made a set of detailed charts on each subject. The programme was part of the Madras Day celebrations.

The three concepts are Madras Seva Sadan, the parent body of the school, Marina Beach and The Hindu newspaper.

A model banyan tree depicted the Seva Sadan and each of its branch was named after an organisation under the Seva Sadan.

For the second concept, Marina beach, the students visited the beach and took pictures, which were displayed, besides a painting by one of the students. Each chart or picture showed vignettes of one of the world's longest beaches, the crowds that gather there for Vinayaka Chaturthi and Kaanum Pongal days, the eateries that abound on its stands and the sporting activities of various groups of children.

The students had apparently done an elaborate study about The Hindu. They traced the origin of the newspaper organisation, the role it played during the freedom struggle followed by the display of all the supplements that come with the newspaper now. The students also managed to get the pictures of some of the Editors of The Hindu over a period of time.

One of the students said it took nearly 10 days to make the chart on The Hindu alone. Ms. Lakshmi Ravindran, a teacher, who guided the students, said three teams, each comprising six students, worked on each concept. The show at the schools would be open till Thursday.
