School Stars Leadership Awards for Excellence in Co-curricular Education were conferred on exceptional Schools & School Leaders across the country on 24th January’19 at New Delhi.
These awards were aimed at felicitating and celebrating the invaluable contributions of select schools in promoting and championing Co-curricular Education.
The Founders of School Stars are convinced that today a wide spectrum of unconventional choices have opened up. The new generation is boldly choosing to be musicians, writers, actors, painters, news anchors, radio jockeys and so on.
It is important that children are provided with opportunities to hone their talents and schools must provide a nurturing environment that goes beyond focus merely on academics. Nearly hundred Principals were honoured by the Chief Guest- Padma Shri Bharti Shivaji – exponent of Mohiniattam and Special Guests Mr. Shubhendra Rao and his wife Saskia Rao-de Haas, one a sitar player trained under Pt.Ravi Shankar and his wife a cello player who trained under Hari Prasad Chaurasia. Both also run the program “Sangeet4All” for school children.
The highlight of the program was a recital by 12 year old Rohan Singhal from Indore. This child prodigy is an International celebrity who won the third place in the World Harmonia Competition in Germany in 2017. Rohan plays all genres of music and sings too.
