Specialised school for Normal (Technical) students opens its doors to pioneer batch
Spectra has 25 teachers on staff, looking to add 17 more by 2015
SPECTRA Secondary School was Madam M. S. Suhanthi's first choice for her son, Deevinesh Judevincent, when she heard that the school caters specially to Normal (Technical) students.
"My son is very good at hands-on stuff like electrical work and fixing cellphones, more than books," said the 46-year-old administrative clerk. "In a normal school, he may not be able to cope."
Deevinesh, 12, was one of the 200 pioneer students who turned up yesterday at the new specialised school for Normal (Technical) students, to prepare themselves for the start of the new year of school.
Other parents like Madam Suhanthi also said they were drawn to the school's learning environment as it can meet their children's needs.
