Progress report

As of today the number of seats sold for the bus has reached 27. All of the passengers so far are from Perth. Thanks to everyone there who have put together more than 4500aud towards the purchasing of a second bus.

On the first of November 60 of the students went on tour for five days around Rajasthan visiting Udaipur and Mount Abu. We took our buses, a cook and his helpers and hit the road. The students had a ball, when you consider that some had never left their local area it was a pretty big adventure. The highlight was boating on paddleboats, when you live in the desert you don't have a lot of opportunities to go out on the water!!!

Sorry that there are no photos. Some of the teachers took photos but they haven't had them processed yet. It will come.

Thanks again and get your tickets for the bus.

Opening of the new school building

Finally the school is opened!!! It isn't really fully ready, some finishing will be done between classes but the time had come to take the plunge. The opening ceremony was attended by Swamiji and a lot of parents. There were some great performances of plays, singing, dancing, yoga and speeches. In short it was a lot of fun. The building is great, the classrooms are spacious, airy and light, the atmosphere is peaceful, pretty much a perfect place for learning.
