A Kollam - Manchester connection : SSA teams up with British Council

Kollam will be just another neighbourhood name for British students in the near future. The very same way that Manchester is becoming dear to many students back home in Kollam.

A new style of collaborative learning is being unfolded in many schools in Kollam, thanks to the initiative by the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) in the State. It has teamed up with the British Council as part of ‘Connecting Classroom’ project, which has hundreds of students in Kollam connected to the classrooms in many schools in Manchester.

The tie-up is only three-months old, but the enthusiasm has caught up with teachers, it seems. The SSA has already sent six teachers from the State to Manchester to imbibe the spirit of teaching and learning exercises under the project and to get the real feel.

“It is basically a transfer of one’s cultural, social and learning environments with the students of another country and in turn sharing their concepts and experiences. It’s the latest of tools that a student can get in tune with the modern education system, which turns them into self-learners. The student is actually turning out to be a global student,” said T P Kaladharan, SSA State Programme Officer in-charge of the teachers’ training.

Being the first time to be knotted into a global relationship, the SSA is treading cautiously. As of now, schools in three clusters, which makes a total of 16 schools in Kollam, have been selected for the project.

Presently, the students are engrossed in preparing the projects related to the culture, social and history. To sample some of them: the festivals in Kerala, the national leaders from Kerala, food and eating habits of Keralites, the climate and the various seasons.

The projects once completed will be sent to the UK by the students and will receive a heap of similar project works from their counterparts there.

From seasons, weather and eating habits of people in Manchester, the projects will be equally interesting and informative.

The Connecting Classroom project is a test of the skills for the teachers too and has been hailed as a teacher exchange programme.

For, they can no longer remain the traditional teacher who helps students much on the textbooks, but need to update themselves on the latest in the eworld along with their teaching materials.

Development of reading and writing skills in English, for both teachers and students, will be an additional outcome of the project, SSA officials say.

A group of students and teachers from Manchester will visit the schools on Kollam on October under the project.

Yes...that is the confusion. I thought M-Mall is the one coming up near Alukkas. But M-Mall structure looks different.

The K-Mall rendering and the upcoming structure has great similarity.

There was a mention of Malabar Gold mall coming up in the city called Fort Infra. I thought both M-Mall and Fort Infra are the same.

Need some clear distinction about the names and the location of malls: M-Mall, K-Mall and Fort Infra.

Anyway, it is nice to hear couple of new mall names in Kollam city.

That means K - Mall is coming up somewhere along the Main Road.

Then my assumption is correct. M-Mall is coming up near the Velankanny shrine. It seems a huge one, may be bigger than K-Mall.

Binoj, thanks for the update which gave me more clarity.

Anyway, I will try to locate both the malls and take some snaps when I visit Kollam in May.

Great News - Two ships docked at Kollam Port for the first time

I heard some delighting news today that Kollam Port accomodated two ships at the wharf at the same time.

One ship is the biggest of all the ships that have docked the wharf in the ports history carrying sand from Gujarat.

Sagar Manjusha, another ship from Lakshadweep also docked at the wharf for study and research of marine and other ocean related subjects.

Love to see some snaps of the port with two ships at the wharf.

I have found the following snap from a previous post of scorpiogenious. This one comes up near the Velankanny shrine and looks like the K - Mall if we compare the rendering and the upcoming building.

Yes, two ships have docked at the Kollam Port's extended wharf now. They are Great Kali, a ship that imported 5000 tons of sand from Gujarat. The second one called Sagar Manjusha was already docked at the port since last month for study purpose. They found Kollam Port more suitable for their research and survey.

I have posted the relevant news in the Kollam Port thread.

High time to widen the NH-47 and NH-208 roads within the city

The National highway NH -47 stretch between Vellayittambalam - Cutchery Junction - Chinnakada Main road is very narrow.

I think they should change the alignment of the NH-47 that goes through the CBD.

Since there is an alternate road that runs through parallel to this road from Vellayittambalam - Mulankadakom - Anandavalleesharam, authorities should widen this road to a 4-lane road and term it as NH -47.

It will be difficult to widen the NH-47 (Main Road stretch) as the commercial hub is located along this stretch.

So, it is a great idea to develop the Vellayittambalam - Mulankadakom - Anandavalleesharam stretch which passes very near to the Ashtamudi Lake banks. Crystal's apartment and Artec's apartments are coming up along this road.

Also, the NH - 208 stretch from Chinnakkada to Kallumthazham is very narrow and poses traffic snarls during the peak time. This road should be widened to 4-lane atleast near to the Kollam Bypass road at Kallumthazham.

MEMUs to start service from early 2011

  • MEMU to eventually replace passenger trains

  • Existing railway infrastructure to be used

  • On Thiruvananthapuram-Ernakulam and Ernakulam-Palakkad stretches

The suburban Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) train services will commence operations in the State in the last quarter of this financial year along the Thiruvananthapuram-Ernakulam and Ernakulam-Palakkad stretches.

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Divisional Railway Manager Rajiv Dutt Sharma said inspection and stabling-line facilities and maintenance shed for the MEMU services were nearing completion in Kollam and Palakkad.

“We will start MEMU services on a trial basis replacing the passenger trains that has maximum patronage. In two to three years, all passenger trains in the Thiruvananthapuram railway division will be replaced by MEMU services,'' Mr. Sharma said.

The Divisional Manager said the maintenance shed in Palakkad could handle at least eight rakes at a time and the one coming up in Kollam could handle 12 rakes.

The Railways are yet to decide whether to introduce the rakes with nine cars or with 12 cars for MEMU operations. MEMU trains of nine cars can carry 3,000 passengers at a time and seating will be as in suburban trains. Each train can run 200 km at a stretch. MEMU services are now plying in the State on the Palakkad Town-Coimbatore-Shoranur section. “The 12 rakes can replace as many as 30 passenger trains,'' he said.

The Railways were insisting on two dedicated lines and high-level platforms for operating MEMU services. Replying to a query in this regard, he said the MEMU services would be operated using the existing railway infrastructure.
