Sanskrit Text Books
Since 1975 fifteen different Sanskrit text books covering the Junior & Senior School curricula have been written and used successfully in the classroom by teachers at the St James schools. There is now a set of 7 Junior School text books published by Motilal and 3 new text books based on the Mahabharata for the Senior School curriculum. All books are available online from a variety of sources.
Two of the primary funding projects for Sanskrit @ StJames at present are the development of teaching videos (free) and 2 additional books covering the material needed to prepare students for the IGCSE exam. These are now available free through the ISER website.
