On Friday 15th March 2013, the Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, visited the Krishna Avanti Primary School in Leicester. He cut a ribbon outside Evington Hall and unveiled a plaque, signifying the school’s official opening.
The Minister was impressed with the school site and especially the ethos and said “you’ve got parents that are very keen to get their children in here. It’s over-subscribed and that’s a reflection of the quality of the school.”
The visit was attended by many community leaders, including the Bishop of Leicester, The Lord Mayor, representatives of the City and County Council and many friends from the business community.
It was an opportunity to show-off the school site and the completed renovations as well as thank all those who helped bring the school together.
