Ho Ho Ho! Christmas Eve visit

On 24th December Rachel & Simon (UK) came to school with Christmas goodie bags for all the students and presents for all the staff. Each student received an orange, fruit bar, snack bag, chocolate bar, pack of biscuits and some sweets. Thank you Santa! The staff were given dress material and shirts as a thank you for all of their hard work.

Denver University Visit

As per usual in December we are very happy to welcome to the school 4 volunteers from Denver University for 3 weeks. This year the girls (Liana, Melissa, Kaitlyn and Christian) were all amazing and really got involved with all of the children they taught as well as the teachers. A dinner hosted by the teachers from Denver University was also enjoyed at Pema Thang Restaurant in McLeod Ganj, where teachers got to meet and talk with other students from Denver University volunteering with other organisations. The students loved the girls and missed them a lot when they left. Thank you for your enthusiasm and keep in touch!

Greetings Cards & Book Marks Sale

For three days in early December a group of students and one teacher came up to meet Rachel (sponsor) in McLeod Ganj to set up a stall and sell a range of Indian Greetings Cards and Christmas Cards that they had been making with Namrata and Rachel during the months of October and November. The students were very keen to raise money for their school themselves and had lots of fun being creative in the process. We had several orders from abroad and our little sales teams did very well and raised an incredible 32,000 rupees! Well done to all of those students who took time and care to make them.
