Loyola Campus Hatton started the New Year 2018 with enthusiasm and hope. The campus is full of boys and girls mostly those who have just completed their GCE Ordinary Level exam. They bring a lot of joy and desire in learning English and computer skills. More than 60 boys and girls have enrolled for the courses at the moment. They remain faithful to the classes and the timetable.
Unlike the previous batch most of the students who have enrolled in January 2018 come from the tea estates. The Centre’s efforts in visiting estate schools and parishes for recruitment have yielded good results. The placement test for the new batch was conducted on 8 January. To our surprise there were already 30 students who sat for the placement test on the first day itself. Gradually more students started coming.
