SHARJAH - The foundation stone of the new campus of the Sharjah Indian School was laid yesterday at the Al Ghubaiba area by Shaikh Saud bin Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Adviser to the Ruler of Sharjah, His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi.

The new building of the school will come up on a plot donated earlier by Dr Shaikh Sultan, adjacent to the existing one and house the boys' section of the school. The new building is expected to be operational by academic year 2004, when the school changes to a single-shift one.
