STUDENT numbers will increase over the coming weeks at HEAL Paradise Village with the Hans Foundation Dormitory for Boys now nearing completion.

Pupils at the primary school have numbered just over 50 since its opening last summer, but that number will double now that the dorms are ready for occupation.

The new building, donated by HEAL’s principal partners The Hans Foundation, will also incorporate a dining area on its ground floor.

The staff and children at Paradise have had to make do with temporary eating and sleeping arrangements until now and the focus of constructors will now shift to completion of the Rajeswari Dormitory for Girls, also kindly donated by Hans.

The two dormitories, made up of eight blocks for girls and six blocks for boys, will each contain three rows of sleeping accommodation and a housemaster/mistress, plus family accommodation and student common rooms.

Also nearing completion on the fast-developing Paradise site is the Phanendra Chunduri Institute for the Visually Challenged, generously donated by Dr Dhanumjaya Rao Chunduri and his family from England.

The institute will help children with sight impairments to learn, enjoy, and communicate with others, giving them the chance to fully integrate into society.

A special dedication to the new institute building was held at Paradise in the week before Christmas.
