Odisha Chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Sunday inaugurated Aditya Birla Public School at Sundarpada in the outskirts of the smart city Bhubaneswar.
The school has started offering courses from nursery to class VII for the 2017-18 academic session. Spread across in an area of 5 acres the state-of-the-art school has plans to offer courses till class X in next couple of years.
