Ahead of the upcoming State Assembly Elections, Students of Velammal Vidyalaya (Annexure), Sr. Secondary School, Mel Aynambakkam, resorted to an innovative way creating an impressive sand sculpture measuring 400 sqft at Vivekananda Memorial, Marina Beach on 2nd April, 2021 that aimed to woo voters to exercise their democratic right to vote. The Sand Art was unveiled by our Chief Guest Shri. G.
