Greetings to you all. Thankyou verymuch for your continuos support. We all owe a great debt of gratitude to you all for your wonderful care,concern and love. We all doing great and getting ready to face the summer of this year.
The temperature has gone high and 39 degrees celceuis during the day and little better in the night. The schools will be having long sessions from March 15 the to the end of May. Now the government has introduced biometric system in the schools. It means all the children and teachers should give their thumb impression every day to avoid attendance problem. Since our school is a school for the special needs children we may have exception.
This year we enjoyed eating Indian kiwis from the school trees. Though we did not have sufficient rains we got very good yielding from the trees. We also had goose berries this year. We make pickle with these fruits by adding oil,green chillies, red chillies. It has high vitamin c in it. This year we need to put more concentration on trees. We are planning to give organic fertilizers like cow manure to the trees.
Children enjoyed the carnival 30 kilometers away from the childhome. We had this carnival every year during the months of Feb and March. This year we had it on the 24th of February. It is a festival worshipping Lord Shiva. We had a trip with the children during your visit to India to this said hill.
Children went 2 days earlier to this place and stayed another 2 days there. The district education department arranged a camp for the special needs children and involved them in the cultural entertaining programs like dancing,singing, mimicry, and musical instruments playing.
The blind children from the school from the blind,Narasaraopet and deff and dumb children from another town participated in this program. Thousands of people participate in this carnival and we really had good time there.
Thankyou verymuch for the roulletors you brought from Sweden. They are really useful to the crawling children. Children are really enjoying them and we request you to bring more during your next visit.
Thankyou once again for your love, care and concern. We keep praying for you and your families. Thankyou verymuch for giving your time, money for us and paving new ways to give us bright future.
