Sivasaraswathi Vidhyalaya – an integrated school of Rural, physically challenged and Special children

 History
Sivasaraswathy Vidhyalaya was started as a primary school in Ayikudy village in June 1981 with just 5 students in a thatched shed as the first effort of Sangam to give quality education at affordable cost to the physically challenged as well as other rural students. 
 
The school grew to 5 teachers and 110 students by 1990 to further progress in our integration efforts of disabled children with others to achieve equal rights for all.  It functions from Juniper Block, constructed with generous donations from Mr. V Chandrasekaran
 
In 1995, we started Middle school and a proper building was constructed with generous donation from well-wishers and named as Sri Abhinava Vidyathirtha Block
 
The ground floor was built in 2002 with the munificent donation of Indian Overseas Bank. The first floor was built in 2004 with the generous donation of Mr. Gerald Fischer of Germany, in memory of his wife Anne Fischer.
 
Middle school was upgraded to High school in 2009 and a suitable building was constructed in 2009 with generous donation from S J Jindal Trust and M. /s Sreevatsa Tube Corporation and other well-wishers. The building is named as Bharat Ratna Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Block
 
This small seed sown has steadily grown over the years into a middle school by 1992 and got elevated to the status of High school in 2009
 
Our Nursery school continues to be in the same old premises with more than 220 students attending Pre-Kindergarten, LKG and UKG classes in very good building.
