As in earlier years, there was tremendous pressure from the parents of children, for admission to LKG at GKV. This high demand for admissions is in spite of the school premises being a little away from the town and all children in Government Schools enjoy benefits, in addition to free schooling, such as free uniforms, books, breakfast, mid-day meals etc. This speaks volumes about the reputation of GKV in the local community.
As usual, preference has been given to the children from poorest families and all other things being equal, girls are given preference over boys. This year 45 children, 23 girls and 22 boys, have joined the LKG class. They are pictured above in their first week at school with their class teacher and the Principal of GKV.
