Shree Poorneshwar Secondary School is an old established school in Parbat district. The school has over 250 students, about 60% of whom are girls.

India and Nepal enjoy multi-faceted and multi-sectoral development partnership that is reflective of the closeness of the people of both countries.

The implementation of this school project reflects the continued support of the Government of India in complementing the efforts of the Government of Nepal to create infrastructure in priority sectors like education.
