From Sathya Sai Baba News from Winter 2002. The coordinator from Sai Spiritual Education, Titia de Groot -Boelens, announces on behalf or the Working Party of the Sathya Sai School in Holland, that she has submitted the concept-covenants to the Association of Denominational Schools. The Association has declared that it doesn't want to review the covenants because of the negative reporting in the media, thus spoke Mrs. de Groot-Boelens.

In spite of this misfortune, the Working Party doesn't want to demoralize itself. Hereby it draws inspiration from a poem from Sathya Sai Baba:

'When you have decided what has to happen, / Keep on strongly at it , until you have success (...) / With such a heartfelt attitude the Lord has no other possibility than just listen to your wishes / Be unselfish and ask it of Him with whole your heart. / Be tenacious, persist and never give up / Because a devotee will NEVER retreat. / Letting his intentions be for what they are.

The Working Party doesn't mention which concrete steps will be taken. Because of the belief that Sathya Sai Baba is an incarnation of God, the Working Party may see the rejection by the Association Exceptional Schools as a sign that Sathya Sai Baba doesn't think the time is right for a school. So it is likely that the the Working party of the Dutch Sathya Sai Organisation won't protest against the rejection by the Association.
