1st November - new academic school year started.
New students join the school.
Class 10 students, aged 16+, take their external Matriculation Examinations
The construction season has eased off as the winter sets in. The JCB will still be used to clear areas of boulders ready for creating sports areas next year. The dining hall & kitchen extension and a final classroom and staffroom are just some of the items on the 2014-15 construction schedule.
The Landscape Team has made great progress in 2013. The Plant Nursery has been established, the greenhouse & vegetable areas have produced kilos of crops and the trenching & piping for the drip irrigation system is in place - see Garden section.
We are aiming to finish construction of the school buildings by the end of 2015 and need funds to do this.
