January 2014: Class X excursion report
Hai, I am Sujeta Kumari Student of Prajna Vihar School Bodhgaya. I have two sister and two brothers. I am the third girl child of my parents. My father would have not sent me to Kolkata. It is because I am girl. But my school made it possible. This was my first trip to Kolkata when we were told about the trip I was very happy and excited. The faces of the students were brightened.
At last, the expected moment arrived and we were ready to start our educational trip. We have to wait for three hours. At midnight we started our journey. Our seats were reserved. We were so happy that we could not sleep in the night but just enjoyed the company of one another. We were welcomed by Mr. Kapil Kapoor. He accompanied us through our tour. First day we went to Victoria memorial and Birla PLANETARIUM. In Victoria memorial I learned many historical facts. Birla Planetarium is very big one. I enjoyed seeing stars and planets. I could not think how the whole roof was moving. In the evening we came back to our residence.
Next day was Sunday. We
were taken to Science City. Oh. It was wonderful. We
saw Evolution park. It was all about
July 2013: FCRA Approval
After many years of
trying to get approval to receive funds directly from
overseas, this full approval was finally granted by
the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs. The approval is
in relation to the Foreign Contribution Regulations
Act (FCRA). The school had previously been granted in
limited FCRA approval, giving permission to receive
specified funds from overseas for land, building and
building maintenance. This full approval means that it
will be much more straightforward for the school to
receive funds from overseas.
April 2013: School painting
A specific-purpose and
generous donation from Australia was made to paint the
school. Apart from hotels on the edge of Mastipur, the
school would now probably be the freshest looking
building in Mastipur.
