Sport-on!

Manoj & Chinni’s win in a local newspaper

Rollakal School began as a small school with the shade of trees being makeshift classrooms. It has come a long way, with the cheery white school building and the spacious grounds taking pride of place in the local community. The grounds have been put to excellent use to develop sports abilities in our students, with school students achieving many wins in various sports.

Class 4 students are given special training every year in order to gain admission in State run sports schools. Admission means the children’s tuition, boarding, lodging and sports coaching is 100% covered by the State Government. Ambala Chinnu and Solithi Manoj are 2 proud students who have made it to the Hakimpet Sports School, after a State Level selection that had students from 33 districts participate and compete for admission! Chinnu’s and Manoj’s fathers are toddy tappers which only provide them with a meager income. Chinnu’s father also had an accident when he fell from a palm tree which doesn’t allow him to do much work. Thus the burden of providing for the entire family has fallen on his mother.

With their education and sports training taken care of, both families feel relieved and look forward to their career in sports and a better life, free from financial burdens.
