This news just came from Vivek at the school:

On 13th June, 2010, Siddhartha School got its new school bus. All the members of Siddhartha School, staff, students and the parents were very happy and grateful to all the sponsors and supporters for their kind generosity. All of us here at Siddhartha school and all our members of the Siddhartha Welfare Society [the local organization that oversees Siddhartha School] express our sincere heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all those who helped fund the school bus. We are indeed very thankful to all our well-wishers, sponsors and supporters.

With the coming of the new bus now the children can come to school on time without having to wait long in the cold weather and without being crowded. All the formalities are done to get the new bus registered. All the process is underway for the bus to get all the insurance done. It will soon be done in a couple of days.

Our total strength of the school today is 272 students, 17 teachers, and 8 non teaching staff. So the strength comes to 297. When 297 members are divided into 4 buses, on an average each bus carries 74 students and staff which still is quite crowded but far better than just three buses.
