    Life's most precious lessons are sometimes learnt from

    simplest experiences. TMF has devised a means of sharing

    these wise experiences with the younger lot through

    interesting, informative and entertaining stories. In this

    regard, over one hundred audio stories have been developed

    on varying topics such as geography, history, science and

    general knowledge. Each story contains a moral lesson for

    the listeners and is meant to facilitate their understanding of

    every-day life matters. Dramatized narration and expert

    enactment of different characters render these stories great

    fun to listen to!

    Story cassettes will be provided to TM Primary School

    teachers who will also be trained to use these academic

    supplements in the most effective manner.
