Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon held a ceremony for handing over the newly renovated multipurpose building on Saturday, 6th May 2017 at Nawarat Monastic Schoolin Shwe Pyi Thar Township.
The ceremony took place in the newly renovated 1,700 sq. feet multipurpose building with Chatrium representatives, the school's headmaster, monks, teachers, students, guests and the media in attendance. As per the program, the management and staff of the hotel handed over the building to headmaster Sayadaw and then offered lunch to the assembled guests.
The old multipurpose building was created with funds raised from the Chatrium Charity Golf Tournament 2013 and has now been renovated to become a new, spacious and strong building. The renovation funds were raised from the Music for Myanmar Charity Event 2016 which raised 16,800,000 kyats which makes the building now worth 21,300,000 kyats in total. With the newly renovated multipurpose building, the 250 students of Nawarat Monastic School will be able to study, pray and hold meetings and events together all under one roof.
Nawarat Monastic School is located in Quarter No. 8, Nawarat Road, Shwe Pyi Thar Township, Yangon and was founded in 2012 by headmaster Sayadaw U Kay Lar Tha. It has come to accommodate over 300 students, around half of whom are in-house children. Within the short span of a few years, it has also become a fundamental establishment in Shwe Pyi Thar Township providing education for children of all religions and ethnic backgrounds.
Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon has already donated concrete paths to the monastic school and a new school building of 1,500 sq. feet worth 25,600,000 kyats.
