For the past two years, The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust has funded the salaries for two full time teachers at the Sebastian Hunter Higher Secondary School, as the school worked towards gaining support from the Government.
Schools in Tamil Nadu are usually run by the church, and since Arni is a Christian run school, the government has been slow in responding to their needs. The academic year began in July, and because of the lack in government aided funds, the teachers have not been paid for the last two months.
The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust has decided to continue to pay the salaries for these two teachers for the next year, in hopes that by the end of this academic year the government will begin to take over the payments.

We look forward to bringing you some exciting updates for the school in the next few weeks!
