We have four excellent pieces of news from Chennai.
The licence to run our boys hostel has been renewed for a further three years while, despite all the disruption of the past two years, 100 per cent of the girls and boys who sat their end-of-year standard exams were successful. Those who finished 12th standard are applying to go to higher education.
On the staff front we have appointed a new assistant warden and a social worker, who is currently researching educational needs as part of our planning for outreach work in Sendrambakkam while we wait for the school to be built.
The picture above shows some of our children getting ready for their first day of term earlier this summer.
