After installing the solar plant it was planned to make the life of our students more comfortable in class. Hence, it was decided to have a canteen day once a month and the income generated will be spent to increase the fans from two to four in each class and to five in bigger classes. It was also decided that two fans and the lights will be connected to the backup system. While the secondary side is work is near completion the work for the school office, staff room, science lab, and the primary wing will commence soon. Our main aim is to slowly put a backup system for all the fans thus making good use of the solar plant. We thank the OBA, parents and benefactors for their generous contribution towards this project. It has encouraged us to start this project faster than expected. We hope we will continue to get such support so that our larger dreams may be fulfilled. We thank the electricians for working after school hours till late in the evening. Short report (By Bro. Nigel our main architect for the solar plant and now this project) With the Solar power plant installed recently that is been providing for the school's energy requirement. We now have a newly installed power backup system that indirectly draws power from the solar inverter. We have installed the latest power saving led lighting and Bldc power saver fans in each classroom to make sure our students do not have to face inconveniences due to the constant power cuts and teaching and learning can go on smoothly.
