Ibby Dalrymple, Beatrice Hasell-McCosh and Aoife Kenny at the Gairatpur Baas Panchayat School
This school for local children aged 6 - 14 was founded by Martin Howard near his home-stay Tikli Bottom. The school is in a beautiful location, nestled beneath the Aravalli Hills, and has fantastic facilities. Teaching is mostly in English.
In April 2015, three young artists, Ibby Dalrymple, Beatrice Hasell-McCosh and Aoife Kenny spent a long weekend with a group of older children decorating the walls of the school's library. Inspired by the many books of stories they created a library train, filled with all sorts of characters.
The Cat in the Hat, the Gruffalo, Chhota Bheem, Cindarella, Akbar and Birbal, Alladin you'll find them all and more!
