Coimbatore: City Police Commissioner C. Sylendra Babu on Saturday inaugurated a computer lab and adopted the Manbaul Uloom Higher Secondary Shool on Vincent Road in Fort.

Lead India 2020 in association with Coimbatore City Police, Residents Awareness Association of Coimbatore – Azhagana Kovai, GE and Giant Media has launched a programme on adopting schools and providing them with logistics to give the children the right ambience to excel in academics.

Police have embarked on this as part of peace time policing initiatives.

Mr. Babu said that children should have an ambition and that should be packed with action to achieve the objective. He exhorted the students to pursue their academics with seriousness. He reminded the students that parents pin hopes on their children and children should live up to the expectations of the parents by excelling in academics, sports and extra-curricular activities.

Mr. Babu said that students in higher standards would be imparted training so as to achieve their ambition of becoming a police officer. He lauded the school for providing free education to ensure that affordability never became a deterrent for education. The computer lab could be used by the students and even ex-students, who form part of the neighbourhood community. As part of the programme, medical camp was also being organised. Lead India had donated logistics worth over Rs. 2 lakh to the school. M.N. Padmanabhan of Madhava Lakshmi Mills donated Rs 30,000 towards the project.
