Arya Vidya Mandir (Bandra -west) on  a garden tour (3rd February 2018)


85 students with 9 adults visited the park. The students were amazed to see the variety and features, and so grateful to have come here. Also to have miniature nature park in the midst of a village is a brilliant idea. Great learnings with facts and figures. Thanks for Rashneh and her team for explaining the various facts.
