Planning for a New School: Crowded at SMD
When school started this year (April 2013) we had 26 classes and only 25 classrooms...that's with a Nursery Class number 27 four year olds and a combined Class 10 (2 classes smooshed together into the room where we do the dental camps - globaldentalrelief.org - twice a year. This year, the dentists will have to go into the Shrine Hall and kids will have to use the Dining Hall for prayers.
The dorms (Hostel) are also very crowded. We can't offer Grades 11 & 12 because of the crowdedness and we've pretty much run out of space to help kids past Grade 10.
