Thank You so much IBYS

In India, our new term starts in the month of June after a long summer holiday. New curriculams are made, new students are admitted and a fresh page starts.

One more new chapter begins. Over the twenty years our school as shown much progress. We have been blessed with lots of well wishers around the world, who have helped us in our day to day activities.

We would like to take this opportunity to convey our special thanks to IBYS, a distant school across the sea, in Tenerife. A special thanks to their students and staff and special thanks to Mrs. Margaret Linklater, and Mr. Kevin Arthur, who have always gone out of their way to awaken in their students , love , compassion and a sense of oneness for the under privileged children of our school..

In 2002 Mrs Linklater and Mr. Arthur decided to step in and give us a hand with a very huge project called “Project-50” which would enable an additional fifty students to be accommodated in our school for vocational activities. The expansion of our school meant a large expense for a brand new Vocational unit to be built on a totally new floor. The school under their guidance organized various bazaars , fairs etc and contributed partly for this project.

Since last eight years, our relationship with this school has matured. They helped sponsor our 'Go Green' project, whereby children are trained in gardening and are able to earn a little stipend by selling the sapling

For our children who were finding it difficult to use the public transport, IBYS collected funds and helped us to buy a mini bus for the school.

Over the period, their funds have been used to furnish the different classroom.

We have two students who are sponsored by them, the expenses cover everything, education, uniform and activities.

As recent as in May 2010, kitchen articles were bought for our vocational unit.

For all this and much more our students, their parents and our staff stand indebted to these 2 wonderful teachers, Mrs Margaret Linklater and Mr. Kevin Arthur, who have sacrificed so much for a small school , in a distant land , a modest school for the mentally challenged which has really spent a long time struggling to stay afloat .

Thank you so much!!!!
