Namaste Grace Church Schoolâ€™s Visit to Vasant Valley School and Northern India, 2010
This book is dedicated with tremendous gratitude to our host families at Vasant Valley School.
Grace Church Schoolâ€™s Visit to Vasant Valley School and Northern India, 2010 After almost seven months of studying Indian history and culture, fifteen seventh and eighth grade students and three chaperones had the opportunity to visit India during the March vacation period. We spent a week with our host families in Delhi. We learned what it was like to be a student at Vasant Valley School. It was hard to leave our Indian families and friends. Our second week was spent visiting temples, palaces and forts in and around Agra, Jaipur, Nimaj, and Jodhpur.
