Chennai: It was a pleasant surprise for students of Adyar’s Sishya School who were on a visit to Fort St. George when Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa called them to her office and interacted with them.
After the brief interaction during which she spoke to the students the way they should shape their future, the CM also posed for a group picture with the students and their teachers of Sishya School.
Sources said the interaction was impromptu and not scheduled.“Now this is the age where all of you should concentrate mainly on your studies and of course extra curricular activities which means, you should not spend all your time in front of the computer or the TV, play video games. You should also go out and play in a healthy manner. You should engage yourself in sports and games also,’ she told the students.
Ms Jayalalithaa said it was the “most unexpected pleasure and surprise” for her since she never thought that she would have this wonderful opportunity of meeting and interacting with “so many bright, well-educated, well-behaved youngsters.”
After the brief interaction, the Chief Minister also presented mementos and souvenirs to students and teachers of the school. “I am sure all of you will have a very bright future in whatever field you choose to take up and if at any time you require the assistance of the government of Tamil Nadu, we are here, I am here to give your school and yourselves all the assistance that you may need,” the Chief Minister told the students.
Hundreds of students from various schools across the state visit the historic Fort St George, the seat of the Tamil Nadu government, every day.
