Morning prayers

It is so beautiful to hear the morning singing of prayer and the national anthem come floating across the breeze at 0830.

Congratulations

For all those who were a part of raising money for the purchase of the school bus congratulations as according to our calculations last week we past the amount required. Until date we have received 511, 250 rupees which is approxiamately 15492 aud or 9300 euros. The cost of the bus and it's initial repairing came to 505, 000 rupees.

Thanks to everyone for their support which when far beyond our expectations and hoping that you will enjoy being a part of our school in the future.

We are now continuing with raising money for another bus as enrollments have far exceeded our expectations and it is pushing the limits of how many people can fit in our current vehicles. So please share our site with others and keep in touch.

Once again thanks and congratulations to all particularly everyone at YIDL Perth, the friends of Gay and David McKinley in Sydney and those who helped from Luxembourg, Japan, Czech Republic and the US.

Yours
Swami Jasraj Puri

The Classroom

Our classrooms are simple. The teaching should be excellent.

Making the most of the opportunity

The new school building

It is well overdue but the final touches are being added to our new school building at least half of which should open by the end of September. It is simple, spacious, well ventilated and full of light. Although it is not an architectural marvel it is so practical that it will be heaven to teach there. We are so much looking forward to getting the students inside and out of the current building where they are literally sitting in the doorways.

It is planned that the building will have a double use, in the morning acting as a school and in the afternoon there will be College classes (Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science). In that way we can offer our students the chance to have quality education not just until Secondary level but right through until they have a degree.





There are 22 classrooms, 3 science labs (physics, chemistry and biology), a library, a computer lab and a multi purpose hall in the building.
