The initial part of this training was conducted in the school itself on 3rd October 2018 which was concluded in the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan on 7th October 2018.

The whole auditorium was buzzing with excitement, yet the 90 minutes training was observed with complete discipline as it was strictly monitored by volunteers and all the teachers who were appointed as stewards for the event. After the training was over, Mr Gopinath and his team awarded the Guinness World Record certificate to Dr Harshwardhan, Union Minister for Science and Technology.
