Hello Kitty cut-outs are hang from the ceiling and stuck to the walls, even the floor was covered with hello kitty character floor mat.

Galande said she decided to decorate her classroom this way because she wanted to make it conducive for learning and motivate her pupils with special needs to learn and enjoy school.
