A young girl from Coimbatore holds an interesting record where she has never missed out even a single day of school and college. Besides maintaining a record of attendance, she also has performed well in her academics.
Anees Fathima(23) a BA graduate of English Literature from Nirmala College for Women, Coimbatore has made a record of excellence by maintaining 100% attendance right from her KG throughout her school and college life. Her record has set an example for all the other students in maintaining a strict discipline in the academic career.
“Attending the school without availing leave is not just for an achievement,” says Aneesa while she adds, “I feel there is a sense of discipline in it and that is why I adhered to it wholeheartedly”.
Having done her schooling in St Francis Anglo Indian School until class 10, she completed her higher secondary grades at St Joseph’s Matriculation School, Coimbatore.
Being a perfectionist as she claims, in everything she does, she has maintained a good record of academic scores as well. “I scored 90% (1087 marks) in my Class 12. When I was in class 6, I fell sick and I could not perform well in my studies.
Hence I repeated the whole academic year”, she says while speaking about her sincere dedication.
Being a young girl from a normal family ground, she sticks to her self-disciplinary rules which amazes everyone. She also shares a few occasions where she had to miss out on certain important events as she had to attend school.
“When I was in my fourth grade, my father had written a huge book of ‘The Holy Quran’ which was 8 feet high and 4 feet wide. A grand ceremony was organised for the same in Chennai.
Even on that day, I attended my classes and then flew to Chennai for attending the function”, she narrates with pride.
She also narrates an interesting incident where the former Governor of Tamil Nadu Surjit Singh Barnala had appreciated her for having missed an opportunity to meet him just because she had to attend her school on that day.
She dedicates her achievement to her father Raja Sherief, mother Yasmin and her teachers for their constant support.
