The British Prime Minister Theresa May visited the Stonehill Government School, the school which was adopted by the Stonehill International School (an education initiative of the Embassy Group) in 2012 with the intention of providing varied assistance to the school. The visit to the school was part of the Prime Minister’s current visit to India to strengthen trade ties. The highlight of the visit was an interactive session with students from Stonehill government and International school.
