London, Jan 30 (PTI) The first State-funded Hindu school in UK has started its operation in a new building here where meditation and yoga will form part of the lessons.

Founded in 2008, The Krishna Avanti Primary School had spent its first year in borrowed classrooms in a neighbouring school and moved to its new premises in September 2009 in Harrow, which has the highest percentage of Hindus than any council in UK.

The school, which has a temple at the centre of its premises, is the first voluntary aided Hindu faith school in the country and is recognised as the most eco-friendly.

It is also Britain’s first vegetarian state school.

Children here study the national curriculum, but also tend the garden and learn concepts such as equality of all living things.

The School has a state-of-the-art building design with the highest aspirations for sustainability and conservation.
