Commissioner of Rural Development Shashi Bhushan Kumar said on Sunday that the Intermediate course would be started in YSR Regional Sports School in Kadapa from the next academic year.

During his visit to the sports school, he recalled that students of the first batch had fared well in exams and sports despite tardy facilities during his stint as Kadapa District Collector.

The school has swimming, hockey and dining facility and students would be selected by an entrance test. Mr. Bhushan Kumar exhorted students to strive to secure gold medals in the national-level.
