Zilla Parishad High School students and management thanked TV9 CEO Ravi Prakash at a thanksgiving meet organised at Kothapatnam in Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh. One year ago on July 5th, 2017 new school block was inaugurated by Ravi Prakash.

ZP Government school like many other government schools lacked enough class rooms for students and classes were held under tree shade. Ravi Prakash Foundation built a new block at the cost of one crore. Eight classrooms and a library was planned. Separate rooms for teachers and headmaster was built. Classrooms had paintings on walls that matched the décor of tables and chairs. Each class was given fans, study tables, chairs,  and the book racks in library gave it a corporate look. Students from far places started to come here to study. Today the school’s strength has gone up by 1500 students and teachers by 50. The pass percentage has increased to 98% and it is a proud moment for the school as six students have got selected for IIIT.
