A Digital Learning Hub, comprising two well-equipped computer labs, was inaugurated at the Government Higher Secondary School at Aruvikkara, in Thiruvananthapuram. The Digital Learning Hub was built utilising the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds provided by the global digital transformation solutions company UST.
The new Digital Learning Hub was inaugurated by Thiruvananthapuram District Collector Geromic George IAS, at a function organised at the school on Friday. Harikrishnan Mohankumar, Senior Director Workplace Management & Operations, UST Thiruvananthapuram, offered felicitations.
The Digital Learning Hub comprises two state of art computer labs with 22 seats each. A CSR initiative of UST, the setting up of Digital Learning Hub was taken up following a request from the Principal of the school, Rani R Chandran, and PTA president V S Sajeev Kumar.
