Social Service by Trivandrum International School
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”
TRINS believes in teaching students to be aware and concerned about the welfare of the society around them. The school has a full fledged social service programme which inculcates a spirit of community in them.
TEACHING AT LOCAL SCHOOLS
Grade 11 students from TRINS visit local government schools every week to teach English and IT skills to primary school students. As a result, the children are able to converse in basic English by the end of the year. A true bond is developed between the students thereby paving the way for them to lead their lives as selfless individuals.
