•   We are sad to inform you that Mrs Sarah Kailath, wife of Padmabhooshan Professor Thomas Kailath passed away in San Francisco on 15th October 2008. Sarah had always been a good friend and staunch supporter of Marion Play Home. She was involved in many charities both in the USA and India. It was Sarah and Professor Kailath who provided the land where the new Rehabilitation Centre is currently being built. We extend our condolences to Professor Kailath and the family.

•   The construction of the Rehabilitation Centre is progressing well and the concreting of the last floor (third floor) has been completed. The builder has started the interior work and our hope is to finish the building by April, 2010, in time for the new academic year. The non-availability of river sand is a serious concern and it is causing delays in the completion of the building.

In spite of very generous donations from the Kailath Family Trust, the Ebby Memorial Fund of the Kolenjikombil family in Kuwait and local individual donations, we still require and request further donations from friends and well-wishers.We reckon that another Rs.25 lakhs will be needed to complete the centre and to furnish the classrooms, boarding and equip the physiotherapy, speech training and oro-facial units.

•   Mrs Kun Vegas took the students to the Trivandrum Club for a Christmas dinner and it proved to be an evening of fun and games. We thank the Club management for providing the students with food and beverages, the cost of which was borne by the Club.

•   A Parents Awareness Day was organised and conducted by Dr. Elsie Philip and the school psychologist to provide direction to parents on how to look after children with special needs.

•   In September this year, Nicky George with his cousin Jacob Chacko climbed Mount Snowdonia, the highest peak (1000m) in England and Wales, to raise funds for Marion Play Home. Our thanks to both of them.

Headmistress of Marion Play Home Ms. P. Thankamony and our Senior teacher Ms. R. Sherin Kumari passed the Bachelor of Education degree (B Ed MR) in October, 2009, the former with distinction. Our congratulations to both of them!
