Woodsville Chosen As The School’s Operational Venue
Woodsville, the 50-acre integrated residential complex being set up by Pharande Spaces opposite the International Exhibition and Convention Center in PCMC, has been selected by the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust as the site of its first Vidya Mandir in Pimpri-Chinchwad, Pune. Spread over two acres of prime land within the ultra-modern Woodsville project, the school will conduct classes from Nursery to Std X.
The Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust chose to launch the school at Woodsville because the location was found to me nothing less than ideal. Woodsville is a fully facilitated, eco-friendly residential project set in a healthy, pollution-free environment. Moreover, it is easily accessible from all parts of Pimpri-Chinchwad and many parts of Pune by broad 6-lane roads.
