President gives grant to Cambodian school

President Pratibha Patil met teachers and students from Kampong Cham provincial Cambodia-India Friendship School on Wednesday and granted school with $246,000. This is the only engagement India has with Cambodia in the field of primary education.The school has an interesting history, and an accidental Indian association. First built in 1981 and named the Trea Sar School, it was renamed ten years later after a visit by the then Indian ambassador in Cambodia. The ambassador had given some rice and a mere $300 as goodwill assistance to the school. Cambodian PM Hun Sen who accompanied the ambassador on the visit, instructed that the school be renamed.
