Gurupoornima Celebration - 2016
‘GURU POURNIMA” was celebrated with traditional fervor and devotion at the premises of Podar International School (CBSE), Chakan. The students presented a wonderful cultural programme in the form of a skit and dance which showcased the genuine respect and regard they have for their gurus. To honour Mother Nature, who is our supreme guru,we thought of giving “Green Theraphy for the urban soul” a “Tree Plantation Drive” was organized where students planted the saplings they had brought to school. This was done with the aim of fostering respect and regard for Mother Nature’s bountiful blessings on us. The teachers from Ambethan and Waki were felicitated by Principal Madam who delivered a short, inspirational speech. This was followed by the teachers sharing their personal experiences about their ‘unforgettable’ mentors who shaped them up. What made the day even more special was the inauguration of solar-powered street light at Askhed Village as a part of ‘Joy Of Giving’ programme. The light was the result of contribution of students and donors and this ‘effort to illuminate’ was flagged off on the auspicious occasion. So, this year, not one, but numerous events helped all of us express our gratitude to ‘Gurujan’ from all walks of our lives.
