ISD Carnival 2014
Indian School Darsait, accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Education & Training, Quality Council of India for Quality School Governance, has been proudly serving the Indian Diaspora for last two decades. The school, though had a humble beginning, has grown enormously in the recent past. The school has earned a very high repute through the continuous hard work of our Senior Management Committee members, Parents, dedicated Staff, and students. The school is very well supported by the eminent expatriate Indian community for its greater success. With its limited resources, ISD has managed to live up to the expectations of everyone at large. ISD has been steadily moving towards its vision of becoming the most preferred Indian Community School in Oman.
Due to the limited funds and resources, the school continually raises funds through different events. With this effect, the school has been organizing Carnival for the last two years. The carnivals were a huge success with the generous help of many sponsors and active participation of large number of well wishers. Both the ISD carnivals received thunderous applause and wide media coverage.
The funds raised from previous carnivals have been utilized for many infrastructure developments, supporting deserving students and related enrichment programmes. This year the school proposes to organize its annual Carnival on 25th & 26th April 2014 at Marah Land, Qurum Natural Park.
We are pleased to inform you that the school is working on its expansion plan and propose to build new building on the 5000 sq meters of mountain areas which is behind the school. We request you to help us by giving generous donations in order to help us with our development plan & mission on quality education.
We request you and your professional organization known for social responsibility to render us a helping hand. It is our earnest request to you to become our main sponsor for the forthcoming carnival.
