The school building was completed in 2015 and IDRF sent a grant to take care of its whitewashing and fixing fans and doors. IDRF donor, who is a native of this area, has been supporting the expansion of this school building. This expansion has provided classrooms, dining rooms, other general facilities, as well as an activity space for kindergarten students. The benefactor couple visited the school recently and donated a marble statue of Goddess Saraswati for the school. On Vasant Panchami, the school will celebrate Saraswati puja and 5 year old kids will write their first letters in front of the Goddess’ statue.
