Shelter, water filtration system and renovation Project
La Salle High School Khushpur was founded in 1961 to provide a better and balanced education to the poor children of this Catholic village. Initially it was a high school and in 2010 at the request of the village parents, the Primary section was established for boys and girls to promote Catholic education in the area.
The Current enrolment is 456 students, there are now 146 girls in Primary. The number of female students are increasing every year for all the primary classes. Therefore the school administration is planning to start level six class(for girls) in the near future as this is the need and request of the village parents in recent years.
In August 2022 the Foundation received a proposal from Principal Br Qumar John FSC for an urgent upgrade to the water filtration system and if funding was available, funds to construct a shelter in the playground for the students and parents who often stand in the heat waiting for their children.
The Lasallian Foundation is pleased to inform our network, the funds requested by the community of La Salle Khushpur were received in late 2022 with the total amount being AUD 17, 000. Below are images of the renovations, shelter and the new water filtration system and a short message of thanks from the school captain of La Salle Khushpur. We wish to thank all those involved in this project who donated and Br Qumar for his oversight and management.
