Edelweiss School July 2013 Newsletter Update
The Edelweiss school has a brand new location! Due to the unfortunate removal of the BTM Layout slum where the school was initially situated, it was decided to relocate the school as the attendance at Edelweiss would eventually have dropped. Edelweiss is now located in Tilak Nagar where it will continue to provide its services to bright and eager children.
The “Re-launch Ceremony of Edelweiss School” was celebrated on the 8th of July 2013 and was attended by many people, known to the AlphaBet Club and Building Blocks. The ceremony was simple, with the ribbon cutting and the traditional lighting of the lamp. Everyone attending wished us success for the future!
