The building ha s six rooms. Besides grades 11 and 12 (the two additional grades after the School Leaving Certificate) four more classes are being taught in the new building.
Due to Nepalhilfe Beilngries’s commitment, the capable students of Rabi Bazar V.D.C., an area of approximately 6000 inhabitants, have the opportunity to continue with their education past the SLC-exam in the 10 + 2 system. The additional two years give the young people the chance to go on to university and earn a degree.
Besides Nepalhilfe Beilngries the alumni of Shree Durga Madhyamik School also support their village and school. The alumni regularly provide some of the financial means to enable the school to buy books and she lves for the library, and also other necessary equipment. This joint venture will make the school in Rabi Bazar a success story.
