Sustainable design makes Vithalapur govt school Goa’s 1st ‘green’ building

At a time when government-run primary schools in Goa are shutting down for lack of students, the Shree Rakhumaee Government Primary School at Vithalapur in Bicholim is preparing to add more students to its rolls when the new academic year begins in June. This is thanks to the school’s new ‘green building’, Goa’s first to be constructed to meet the Indian Green Building Council’s (IGBC) norms.
