As the two-day celebrations on the occasion of the 165th Founder's Day were brought to close at Lawrence School at Sanawar on Thursday, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal gave Rs 1 crore to the school to build common rooms for students, which he suggested be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh.
"I was going through the dormitories yesterday and saw that there is nothing interesting to do in the evening. From my side, I will ensure that there is a music system on every floor and LCD TVs in both dormitories," he said.
Prior to Sukhbir's address, Headmaster Praveen Vasisht had also highlighted the financial crunch being faced by the school. "Our infrastructure and campus is the oldest and there is not a house that does not leak during monsoon. Roads also cave in around here. If not taken care of, we may soon literally become historic. Funding is a problem, else we would like to teach disadvantaged children free of cost," said Vasisht.
