August 2017 update

Date: August 31, 2017 Author: Rachel Categories: News

School resumed the last week of July after the main monsoon period. This month we were lucky to receive many visitors. Rachel and Simon, two of our permanent sponsors visited for 3 weeks. On 15th August Gamru school students joined their voices to other students nationally in our own celebrations of the 70th anniversary of Indian independence. Our students sang the Gamru School song, cited poetry, talked about the environment and danced for our guests: very proud mothers, our committee members, sponsors Rachel and Simon and our special visitors for the day,  volunteers from Ruchi NGO (The Rural Centre for Human Interest) and Nupur Sandhu from Jalandhar, who came through her connections with Rotary Club Dharamshala.

On 17th August we were delighted to welcome Sara Patel and her family to our school. This lovely family come from Kensington in London (UK) and Sara worked hard last year to raise money for us at her school (St. James Senior Girls’ School) by organising a variety of fun activities and events. Sara and her parents stayed with us for the day and helped feed the children. We thank them for their time and amazing generosity of spirit.
