Poona Night School Principal Avinash Takavale said, “There are many children who cannot support their education. Many good Samaritans have made donations to make free education for 100 students possible.”

PUNE: On the occasion of its 100th anniversary year, the Poona Night High School and Dagdusheth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganpati Trust Junior College have decided to give free admission to 100 out-of-school students.

The admissions are open for those eligible for classes from Std VIII to Std XII (Commerce). The minimum age for admission is 14 years and  there is no upper age limit. 

These students will also be provided school material free of cost.

Poona Night School Principal Avinash Takavale said, “There are many children who cannot support their education. Many good Samaritans have made donations to make free education for 100 students possible.”

The school will be providing free education to 50 students from classes VIII to X and 50 from the classes XI and XII. A amount of Rs 540 per student for the high school, while Rs 940 per student for the higher secondary school  has been received.

“Our school has completed 100 years. A night school mostly caters to the out-of-school and needy students. Even among those, there are many who have to work to sustain themselves. So they prefer night school,” Takavale said. Along with education, the Poona Night School has an up-to-date computer laboratory and an e-learning facility for its students.
