Rotary Club Koregaon Park was also keen to develop this school into a model one. Keeping the best interests of the school in mind and considering that both the organisations had a common objective of “impacting school children positively”, both organiations agreed to collaborate to make this a Model Toilet Block. The new block is equipped with 7 WCs for girls and 4 for boys, 1 WC each for handicapped boys and girls, and 9 urinals for boys. In addition, separate areas have been demarcated for washing of hands and feet.
A multi-purpose playground with a volley ball net, RO Water Filter providing safe drinking water and tree plantation are some of the other activities undertaken. By joining hands, Round Table India and Rotary International have made a positive impact on the lives of school children in this area.
