This Primary school is 2 km away from Tuticorin bus stand. In total there are 106 students, 56 girls and 50 boys. Students are coming from an area with a radius between 2 and 6 kilometers and from 4 villages. With the funds contributed by the school teachers, they arranged auto facilities for the students and paid for sweepers.
