Record numbers in 2015
The new school year in Malaysia started in January and finishes in November. We are pleased to report that for the 2015 school year there has been a significant increase in the number of girls the Harinder Veriah Trust is supporting. In 2014, 41 students were enrolled in Assunta Primary School: for the 2015 school year we will be supporting 43 students. At Assunta Secondary School we supported 13 students in 2014 and this number has risen to 19 students in 2015. Last year the students at the Secondary School only received the uniform aspect of the programme but in 2015 they will also be getting the free lunch at school.
Taking both schools together, the total number of students we are now supporting has gone up from 54 in 2014 to 62 students in 2015.
For the full report on the Trust’s work at Assunta in 2014, and our plans for 2015:
“Firstly, I like thank the HVT programme. They have helped my family by giving me uniforms, school shoes, meals on a daily basis during recess and revision books to study.The tuition has helped me improve my writing skills and I am better at my school work. I would also like to thank the teachers for teaching me how to be successful in school.”
