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.
