Young children are basically curious by nature. This curiosity leads to attainment of knowledge. Whenever a child is given a new toy, He/She show keen interest and want to explore it. However I do not readily agree with John Lockes’s belief that children’s minds are like ‘empty states’. I believe that children are born with certain characteristics and at times they may be inherited. This is the reason that at times there is a remarkable similarity in the nature of parent and their child. But then each child is different and has his/her own individual personality. This can be the reason why two children born to the same parent may possess completely different personalities. I believe that children are active learners. Fried rich Froebel and John Dewey emphasized the role of play in a child’s learning. As parents and teachers we will all agree with the fact that children are naturally drawn towards playful activities which provide them both pleasure and learning. In the early years of childhood we cannot expect the children to be given abstract knowledge. They need active learning with concrete objects. They learn best by doing. Therefore it is best to provide a stimulating environment where every child gets an opportunity to explore and experience. I also believe that nature is the best teacher and therefore children should be provided learning experiences in close relationship with nature. This will allow a child to use senses to explore and experiment.
As we all know there is maximum development of brain during the early years. A teacher has to be a guide and facilitator providing child with a sense of belonging ness and safety. At Seth Anandram Jaipuria School the teachers work in close cooperation with parents to ensure maximum learning in a positive manner. These are the formative years of life and habits formed may persist throughout the life. Teachers closely observe whether a child has achieved developmental milestones or there is a need for early intervention. If required the child and parents are given counseling sessions by the school counselor or special educator. Teachers and parents should always motivate children and provide positive reinforcement. Children should be engaged in hands-on activities to teach them a variety of concepts. The early childhood curriculum at our school is child-centric meeting needs of every individual child. A stimulating environment is provided where children use their senses to achieve real-life experiences. Children having a healthy body and a healthy mind can contribute towards building a better society.
Union HRD Minister felicitates meritorious CBSE Class XII students at Gunn Gaurav Samman Samaroh- 2019. The 4th Gunn Gaurav Samman Samaroh-2019 was organized in the capital on 22.05.2019 under the aegis of MHRD. The Union Minister of Human Resource Development, Shri Prakash Javadekar felicitated 75 students of class XII who topped in CBSE examinations in different categories. Smt. Rina Ray, Secretary (School Education & Literacy) also graced the occasion as the Guest of Honour
“Success repeated is not a coincidence”, and the students of Seth Anadram Jaipuria School have proven it once again by creating history. Again the school has produced three toppers in CBSE results by giving two All India toppers Aaishna Jain and Pragya Kharkwal at third rank in XII standard by securing 497/500 and Ankur Mishra at rank one in CBSE class X by securing 499/500. Highlights of the results are 100% students cleared with flying colours.181 students out of 209 secured distinction,47 students scored 95% and above, 94 students scored 90% and above and 62 students scored perfect 100 in one or more subjects and have made the school incredibly proud and we certainly wish to continue this streak of success in the Board results in the coming years as well!
Pragya has always been a sincere and hardworking student doing incredibly well in academics. She got 10 CGPA in class X and was awarded by the school for her academic excellence. She has a creative imagination and flair for art which she has used in various class activities like board decoration, farewell functions etc. She has been an active participant in many of the inter house activities and has won many competitions. She is passionate about the issues hampering the environment and wishes to render her contribution in some way. The school takes pride to have a student like Pragya.
Aishna on the other hand is the personification of calmness. A girl with child like simplicity and ever flowing smile on her face, she has carved a niche for herself. Sympathetic and extremely concerned, her nature tends to be very sensitive towards others. She believes in enjoying every day of her life to the fullest by finding joy in every little thing. At the same time she is relentless towards pursuing her goal in life and is extremely hard working. She has always been respectful towards her teachers and helpful to all her peers. She aspires to be a psychologist and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
Ankur Mishra, who missed 500 by only 1 mark is a Dhoni fan and loves cricket. Even during the exams, amidst the stress and studies, he managed to find time to rejuvenate himself by playing cricket with his friends. Being a smart worker along with a hard worker, he used to plan his studies target wise and not time wise, finishing his studies before time. He has opted for PCM trio in XI standard and might pursue engineering by cracking IIT.
Our students have done us proud by performing exemplarily well in CBSE Board Examination but SAJS stands tall today because these marks are not only the manifestation of academic proficiency but also the values instilled in our children – values of discipline, regularity, sincerity and honesty towards our work. We revel in our glory today not because it is the victory of SAJS but because it is the triumph of true spirit of education!
Reading has always been a passion for me. I still remember how excited I used to be at the start of my summer vacation; that whole day long train journey to my grandmother’s place and a whole lot of story books of various kinds ranging from folktales to fairy tales and to comics that I was fond of reading. I wanted to finish them all before reaching our destination (and most of the times I succeeded too). I
feel happy when I find myself still brimming with same enthusiasm for books. Over this journey of my life, I have found books as the best mates of mine. They not just entertain me, but also many a times help me finding out the solutions when I’m in tough situations.
As a teacher at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, I want my students to be benefited by the good experiences of my life and one of them is reading. This is the reason I keep advising them all to inculcate the habit of reading good books. Reading can affect the lives of readers directly and indirectly in different ways but there are certain direct benefits of reading to all which are as follows.
Reading loads us with knowledge
Though I am also an educator, still I strongly believe that books are the best educators. They inform us about the current happenings around the world, connect us to our past and pave the way to our bright future. They satiate our hunger for knowledge and make us smarter and more knowledgeable.
Reading books is the best source of our word bank
Good communication skills are the need of this hour. The most influential you are, if you express your ideas explicitly. And for that you need to have a good vocabulary. The teachers at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School feel that books not just enhance our vocabulary, but they improve our language skills and fluency too thus making us more confident to face various situations.
Reading improves our memory
Books stimulate mental health. They have direct impact on our brain and its functioning. They help in better concentration and boost memory.
Reading adds a creative flair
While reading, we start maintaining a connect with the characters of the book and visualizing the scenes and situations described in the book. Reading instigates our creativity and imagination. In the words of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam,
“Learning gives creativity Creativity leads to thinking Thinking provides knowledge Knowledge makes you great.”
Books are the best entertainers
Books help us in destressing. They keep the boredom away and eliminate the idleness.
Katherine Patterson has rightly said, “It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.” Keeping this in view, I want to suggest some good titles appropriate for the age group 7-10 years to my students to begin with.
- Cherry Tree – Ruskin Bond
- Pippi Longstocking – Astrid Lindgren
- Fantastic Mr. Fox – Roald Dahl
- Charlotte’s Web – E. B. White
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Roald Dahl
- The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain
- Ballet Shoes – Noel Streatfeild
- Rusty the Boy from the Hills – Ruskin Bond
- Swami and Friends – R. K. Narayan
- The Wind in the Willows – Kenneth Grahame
- Stig in the Dump – Clive King
- The Secret Garden – Frances Hodgson Burnett
- Emil and the Detectives – Erich Kästner
“Yellow”……The colour of sunshine, hope and happiness.” The different shades of yellow colour stimulated our children with lots of happiness , energy and optimism as Pre Nursery celebrated “Yellow Colour Day” on Wednesday 15 May 2019.
Beams of yellow colour were reflecting everywhere and the classrooms were lit up with the bright hues of the yellow dresses that children wore.
Children also brought different yellow food items in their tiffins. Bubbling with immense enthusiasm, they also had a “Lemonade Party” and spent the day with utmost enjoyment. Yes! the colour of wisdom and intellectual energy had a positive influence on our tiny tots.
CHOICES ARE HARD
We often find ourselves stuck when it comes to choosing.
So what to do? The answer is to choose the better that lead you to the right path.
Choosing the right school to study. Choosing the career path. To choose the best that provides quality and value-based education.
Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Vasundhara, Ghaziabad has incorporated the best global practices in its curriculum.
The project-based pedagogy provides its students greater exposure to holistic development. Seth Anandram Jaipuria School has one of the best infrastructure with modern and well –equipped computer labs, virtual –room, Science –labs, spacious music and Arts rooms along-with Atal-tinkering lab that throw a spell to make a choice. The school is strengthening the internal dimension in the curriculum through activities.
Seth Anandram Jaipuria School appreciates the importance of academic excellence which is the pivot around which the wheel of education rotates. The scholastic and co-scholastic brilliance of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School have earned recognition. The stupendous CBSE Board results of the school reflects the perseverance, tenacity and hard-work of the students and the laborious and dedicated faculty and support from parents.
“Children must be taught how to think not what to think.”
With a view to facilitating professional development and keeping the teachers and students abreast with the latest information with regard to their respective areas ,work and interest various workshops, seminars and interactive sessions are organised throughout the year by the school.
Seth Anandram Jaipuria school organises Annual day, Sports day, Science exhibition, compufest every year with great enthusiasm. The school calender is packed with inter-house activities and special assemblies. The students of the Seth Anandram Jaipuria School are motivated and guided by teachers to participate zealously in intra-school and interschool competitions that help its students to be an active-learner and showcase their talents.

“It is nothing short of miracle that modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry.”
To ensure that the students take initiative to be the change for sustainability and develop environmental sensitivity, the tree-plantation drive and poster-making competition were organised on April 22, 2019 i.e. the Earth Day .It is yet another Eco-initiative taken by Seth Anandram Jaipuria School inspiring children to protect the environment by contributing their efforts to make the mother earth green and clean.
The aim of the drive was to pay tribute to mother-nature by engaging the students in action-oriented and socially responsible learning. The students pledged to nurture plants and trees .Many saplings were planted in the school-premises. On April 27,2019 a group of students attended an ‘Eco-seminar’ where they gained insight into sustainable development and actively participated in tree- hugging activity and a workshop on Waste-management by Dr. Kalpana Arora.
The outstanding performance is expected to continue with years to come.
“It is nothing short of miracle that modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry.”
Address by Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, Honourable Vice President at the Dr. Rajaram Jaipuria Memorial Lecture in New Delhi on 30th April 2019
I am extremely happy to be here today at this magnificent Convention Center named after Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar to deliver the First Dr Rajaram Jaipuria Memorial Lecture.
Let me begin with one of my favourite quotes of Babasaheb Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution: “An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise, both will wither and die”.
I am therefore glad that the ideals and values which Dr Rajaram Jaipuria upheld all his life have been carefully nurtured by his successors, and we have assembled here today to celebrate his Idea of “Empowering the Next Generations through Quality Education”.
Thirukkural says “The wealth of learning is alone imperishable; nothing else is true wealth”.
Dr Rajaram Jaipuria was an industrialist and educationist at the same time. He selflessly followed a legacy of philanthropic-minded industrialists of the pre-Independence period, who used to set up educational institutions, temples and Rest Houses for pilgrims, driven by a spirit of social service, and not for business.
Following the footsteps of his late father Padma Bhushan Seth Mangturam Jaipuria, who had set up the famous Jaipuria College in Calcutta way back in 1945, Dr Rajaram Jaipuria established many educational institutions all over India, starting with the K-12 School in Kanpur in 1972 and also patronized the Char Dham Ved Nyas, imparting Vedic education in Sanskrit from ‘Prathama’ to ‘Acharya’ levels at five religious centres of India.
He combined the best of East and West, in terms of ‘values’ and ‘scientific advancements’ in the curriculum and pedagogy in all the academic institutions that he had established. I am very pleased to note that the Jaipuria Group logo carries one of my favourite quotes from Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: ”Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya” ie, “Lead us from darkness to light”.
The theme of today’s lecture has been aptly chosen by the Organizers–Education, Entrepreneurship & Ethics.
Today, we are living in the era of Industry 4.0. In this era, India has a real chance to progress faster and bridge the development gap with the most of the developed nations. We missed the first three Industrial Revolutions as we were too late to catch up with the West.
But, thanks to the new digital age and the genius of young Indians, we stand a real chance to surge ahead and take the lead, given our demographic advantage. Industry 4.0 is also called the Knowledge Economy. The language of the new economy is digital and I am quite confident that our youth will take charge of New Digital India and take the country to new heights.
Apart from Bengaluru and Hyderabad, almost every city in India is evolving into a Silicon Valley. India is already home to one third of all start ups in the World, next only to China and the USA.
We are no longer strangers to words like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data, Cloud Computing, 3D Printing, Block chain, Machine Learning and Design Thinking. Most of the new startups are powered by these technologies. I am happy to note that you are already having the Atal Tinkering Labs in your schools.
Dear sisters and brothers, India is the fastest growing economy in the world today and we are on the path to becoming the third largest economy 10-15 years. Since 1991, at current prices in dollar terms, we are growing at over 8.7% CAGR and our per capita income is growing at 7% CAGR. Our literacy rate has improved from 52% in 1991 to 79% in 2018. The prospects look quite bright.
India has a huge population of 1.35 billion with a per capita average annual income of $1928 and average life expectancy of 69 years, but the good news is 66% of our population will be in the age group of 15 to 64 by 2020 and the working population will remain at same level or higher until 2060. The average age of Indians in 2020 will be only 29 years as compared to China and USA at 37%, Europe at 44% and Japan at 50%. This means India will remain much younger compared to the population in already developed large economies like China, Europe and USA, for next four decades.
It is believed that there would be a shortage of skilled workers globally in a rapidly ageing world. By ensuring skill development and imparting latest training in various vocations to the youth, India can cater to the global requirements of skilled workforce, apart from meeting the demand within the country.
The demographic advantage is tilted towards India now. However, the demographic advantage can turn into a demographic dividend only if we focus on skill development and continuous upgradation of Knowledge and Skills. I am sure that the National Policy on Skill Development and Entrepreneurship will address all the challenges of skilling, while the National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) will help standardize and integrate the skill component of the people with the formal learning arrangement.
Students can learn from anywhere in real time now. Technology has effectively broken the barriers of distance through different mediums. We are now living in an Information and Communication Technology-driven world and imparting ICT- enabled education has become the sine qua non of the modern society. In fact, ICT revolution is triggering a paradigm shift in the education sector.
As you are aware, the platform of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) is revolutionizing learning and knowledge dissemination. India’s SWAYAM MOOCs platform has emerged as the World’s Largest Online Free E-Learning Platform Portal. It is designed to achieve access, equity and quality in education at all levels. Again under the SWAYAM PRABHA programme, high-quality educational programmes are being telecast through the DTH channels. Further the MHRD under its National Mission on Education through ICT (NME-ICT) has initiated the e-Pathshala. The interactive e-content covers around 70 subjects across all disciplines of social sciences, arts, fine arts, humanities, mathematics, linguistics and languages.
India faces a challenge regarding student enrolment and drop outs. Although, our Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) has improved to 25.8 per cent, it lags behind the global average of 33 percent and those of the emerging economies like Brazil (46 percent), Russia (78 percent) and China (36 percent). Mere literacy is not going to increase employability but skill-literacy shall. The Government initiatives on skill-literacy have to be supported by private institutions. I look forward to a strong participation by the Jaipuria Group in promoting skill-literacy in India.
Technology can bridge the GER gap. For example the Jaipuria Campuses can train many times its current 15000 strength by offering a helping hand to remote students in e-learning mode. A village school which has teachers and physical infrastructure up to primary level can offer education up to high school level in distant learning mode with virtual laboratories and conduct simulated experiments. Traditional craft schools up to high school level can be opened with resources naturally available in each village.
The syllabus and curriculum, and the pedagogy have to be revamped using design thinking and creativity. Rote learning has to be replaced by Action learning.
The use of ICTs has made lives of millions of Indian comfortable now in most areas of their engagement—be it agriculture, industry, business or service.
The time has now come for India to re-establish itself as a knowledge and innovation hub. For that to happen, we have to completely overhaul our higher education system to cater to the fast changing requirements of the 21st century in different sectors. Apart from remoulding the syllabi and pedagogy, the stress should be on learning-by-doing. Greater focus should be on instilling entrepreneurial spirit among the students. This calls for exposure to industrial ecosystem and our educational institutions should develop organic linkages with local industries and ensure that students undergo internships in them as part of the course. We need more and more job creators and not job seekers and our education system should revamp its curricula in accordance with this requirement.
Already India has earned the distinction of being the second largest start-up hub in the world and we need to make India the numero uno in start-ups.
Another all-important aspect is the need for an education system that lays a strong foundation for progress of the society to be grounded in an unwavering commitment to morals, ethics and values of humanism. Unfortunately, we are witnessing an all-round degeneration in ethical and moral outlook in different walks of life. Education will have to play a big role in arresting this undesirable trend. Let us recall the sagacious words of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, who had said: “Education which does not mould character is absolutely worthless”.
For ages, India was the Vishwa Guru. Our famous universities like Takhashila and Nalanda threw open their doors to students and scholars from other regions. In tune with our age-old ideal , “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, we always believed in sharing knowledge with the global community.
Education is the most vital engine of development and the best gift you can ever give to the children and youth for continuous progress of civilization and prosperity of humanity.
Sisters and brothers,
All of us owe a lot to our native place. Parents and teachers who shaped our careers. We as individuals must develop the habit of dedicating some time towards the welfare of the society.
Our ancient philosophy teaches us the value of caring and sharing. It is the collective responsibility of every citizen to do his bit to bring in a positive change in the lives of people. Every individual irrespective of position, post and political views must work for the welfare of others, empowering women and the weaker sections should be accorded highest priority. Memorial lectures provide an opportunity to recollect the service done by the great individuals and draw inspiration from their lives.
We should use these lectures as platform to motivate youth and guide them in the right direction. We must encourage the youth to adhere to traditions of tolerance and respect and protect the country’s pluralistic culture. India of the future should be powered by the dreams, ambitions, character and competence of young people.
We need to cultivate a culture of healthy and civilized discussion on many of the pressing problems such as class and gender inequalities, illiteracy, poverty, climate change, and the needs of the less privileged in society.
Education which is the most important component in nation building must be given utmost priority. A rethink is needed on the education system to revamp syllabus to suit to the needs of 21st century knowledge economy.
Education must teach the children aspects such as service, and volunteerism. It must make students to be sensitive to the needs and sufferings of others.
We must inculcate a sense of oneness among the children by teaching them about the diverse and rich heritage and culture of our great nation. Inspiring Stories of freedom fighters, social reformers and biographies of eminent scientists must be made part of the curriculum so that the young get motivated by reading about the lives of great men.
Before I conclude, I would like to say, with Indian economy on the rise, all of you will have plenty of avenues and opportunities and you should seize them. Remember the advice of former President A P J Abdul Kalam to dream high and work with dedication to realize your dreams and build a New India, which shall be free of poverty, illiteracy, fear, corruption, hunger and discrimination
Let me congratulate the Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions for organizing this Memorial Lecture in the name and memory of a great Industrialist, Educationist, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and above all a great human being.
I am happy to join you all today to celebrate the gift of Dr Rajaram Jaipuria to posterity.
Jai Hind!View More

Commemorating the Earth Day
Our Mother Earth with her grandeur, exquisite beauty and altruism has been placed at a divine altar for preserving and flourishing life in all its varied forms. The delicate comradeship among Earth, nature and human beings would have witnessed an enduring bond had avarice and apathy of the latter not made it infirm. Our Mother Earth is ailing and suffering and to protect it from its seemingly inevitable end while we still have time, The United Nations made an elaborate plan for the sustainable development of the world – the plan that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future enerations to meet their own needs. 17 sustainable goals set by it in this direction call for concerted efforts towards building an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for people and planet.
Completely comprehending the need to promote prosperity across the world and protect our planet, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Vasundhara, Ghaziabad celebrated Earth Week from 15 April to 22nd April 2019.Multitudes of activities aiming at spreading awareness among the students and community at large about the present deplorable plight of the earth and our duties towards alleviating this distress, were organized in the school’s premises. Special assemblies conducted by the children from Nursery to class XII throughout the week, surfaced the need to become warriors to save our Mother earth from our own misdoings. The elocutions, dance drama, skits, songs, recital of poems, documentaries etc. in the assembles ,highlighted the need to execute the 17 sustainable goals made by United Nations, be it the goal of – No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, Reducing Inequality, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Life Below Water, Life On Land, Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions or Partnerships for the Goals. Inter-House competition ‘Botannica’ saw beautiful displays created by all the four ‘houses’. These displays showcased the ‘gardens’ made by the students with the help of ecofriendly material. The Poster Making activity on ‘Earth Day’ was a beautiful manifestation of how reverentially the earth is perceived by our children. Plantation drive on a massive scale saw students coming together with all their vigour to undertake the task of planting saplings in the garden of the school. The celebrations culminated on 22nd April with children reminiscing their week-long zealous efforts , with snapshots of the activities undertaken. On this officially declared International Mother Earth Day children pledged to keep contributing their bit towards creating an Earth where there is just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations. The awakening spree organized under the guidance of our Principal cum Director, Ms. Manju Rana with the relentless support of the Vice Principal Ms. V. Suprabha , the Head Mistress (VI-X) Ms. Sonal Srivastava, Head Mistress (I-V) Ms. Indu Kohli, was a huge success and urged everyone to always remember that “We have not inherited this earth from our forefathers; we have borrowed it from our children”.
Together We Herald A New Era
21st century -It is the best of times , it is the marvel of a dynamic age , that heralds innovation, collaboration, digitalization and establishment of a global community. Therefore, education, which is the harbinger of change in a society, has to be drawn out of its isolated four walls of the classroom and touch the larger concerns of the world. With an aim of reinventing education system, that responds to the needs of industry 4 revolution, where man and machine align to explore new possibilities, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School Ghaziabad celebrated Community Day on the occasion of Dr. B.R Ambedkar’s Birth Anniversary, April 14, 2019, in its premises.
The fun-filled day of innovation was graced by the presence of dignitaries like Mr. Ashish Nayan, Expert Niti Ayog, Mr. Makhan Lal Gupta , Observer Niti Ayog, Ms. Aishwarya , mentor of Change , NIti Ayog. Mr. Shivam Tiwari , facilitator and Tinkering expert ,Ms Manju Rana, Principal cum Director, Ms. V. Suprabha , Vice Principal and Ms. Indu Kohli, Headmistress.

One could not help feel astounded at the hands-on-sessions conducted during the day which created wonders of technology like 3D Printers working with wood, metal and PLA, marble machines etc. The projects made by the students like Autobot, Hovercraft, Prosthetic hand, First Aid dispenser, Noiseless Copy Submission machine, Smart shopping card spoke volumes about their ingeniousness. Sessions on tinkering, prototyping , IOT , Robotics were highly informative and edifying.
With a vision to ‘Cultivate one Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators’, NIti Ayog has initiated Atal Innovation Mission which is being executed throughout the country through Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs). The objective of this scheme is to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds; and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. Imbibing the spirit of the mission in its true sense Seth Anandram Jaipuria School Ghaziabad is already on its journey of creating a workforce skilled in 21st century skills through Atal Lab’s innovations. Though many accomplishments are credited to the school in this sphere , but the school is glad to share that two teams of Atal Tinkering Lab from our school made it to it to the Top 200 teams of the ATL Tinkering Innovation Marathon 2018-19 conducted by Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog and The Better India, with the support from GE and IBM.
Community Day celebration was a reflection of our belief that life-changing tasks such as preparing our youth to solve real world problems, with 21st century skill sets, can be accomplished only when each and every member of our community is roped in it and becomes an integral part of it. The event was successful in sending the vibes of the change across the hearts of the participants and the school would continue with its endeavours in this direction in future too.
