World Rhino Day
" Each and every animal on earth has as much right to be here as you and me " - Anthony Douglas Williams

There are five different endangered species of rhinos including Sumatran, Black, Greater One-horned, Javan, and White rhino.

To glorify teachers and their efforts in shaping the young minds, Teacher's Day stands as a golden opportunity. The day was utilized well this year by the students of grades III-XII, to pour their hearts out and express their appreciation towards them. A talk on the role of a teacher was delivered in the special assembly followed by an oath on cleanliness. Also the students of Grade XII took the roles of teachers and experienced the nuances of being one.

The fragrance of flowers, soothing aroma of camphor and the jingle of bells filled the air with excitement and joy. The event was based on krishna janam, the legend of the Krishna stealing butter and beautiful memories of lord krishna with his mother.
