Helping Hands Jain Youth organisation, which has adopted the school, has got the beautiful paintings done by artist Punith, who took about a week to complete the art work.

Helping Hands Founder-Treasurer Rajan Baghmar, speaking to Star of Mysore, said that as the school is located at the rear gate of Dasara Exhibition Grounds where the parking lot is located, hundreds of visitors pass by to park their vehicles daily.
