Davanagere: The ability to recall the correct answer while dealing with the enormous pressure that appearing for an examination as important as the secondary school leaving certificate (SSLC) is a skill the value of which simply cannot be overstated. In Davanagere, select students from various schools are being housed at the MSS Training Centre in Kondajji village – a facility that sprawls 13 acres – for a period of one week where they are being imparted lessons to enhance their concentration, grasping power, memory and increase their reading speed.
MSS Training Centre director Dr Jayanth said that offering such training had been the dream of the late founder of Sri Siddaganga School in Davanagare, MS Shivanna. “He founded this centre, and wanted students from across the state to benefit by learning these skills. We have written to the chiefs of schools across the state, requesting them to send one boy, and a girl, to our training camp, which will start on November 14, which is also Children’s Day. We will be training students in batches of 80 for a week, and this will continue for four months. These skills will equip students to face the key examination without fear,” Jayanth said.
Head of Siddaganga School in Davanagare Justin D’Souza said that they were calling the initiative ‘10X Plus Training Camp’. “We trained 230 children from our school using these methods last year, and found them to be very effective,” he said.
Programme co-coordinator DS Hiremath said that they would teach students various techniques that would help activate the brain.
