Divine Touch school would be different as it brings to the city the unique Indian culture which stood the test of time, and Montessori methods and handling of subjects including moral science that would make a mark on the young, impressionable minds.

Initially, the school would accommodate only 100 and later would be shifted to a more spacious premises somewhere near Rishikonda, she said.

Some 80 gurukul students of ISKCON from Mayapur would be visiting the city towards May – end to give a glimpse of the quality education imparted at the school, she stated.

Divine Touch would also have thematic rooms for activity, arts and crafts, audio visuals, computers, dining, splash pool, puja room, and a mini zoo besides indoor and outdoor games, she added.
