The new academic session is starting to gather storm with opening of schools and online classes are going on. We must be doubly cautious and should take all the precautions while conducting the classes when offline mode starts. We must not let our guard down at any cost. A little complacent attitude may invite great trouble. The month of August has seen many festivals and celebrations. Everyone involved has taken all the care while observing the occasions. We look forward to having fruitful and bounteous months ahead.
As the classes have gone into full swing we have had the first periodic test in the month of August. The teachers and everyone involved have taken great care in conducting these tests and in imparting quality education to the students. Even during these tough times they have made it a point that none should be deprived of getting education.
Some of the glimpses of activities happening in the month of August

Celebration of Raksha Bandhan and Eknathji Punyatithi
All the schools celebrated Raksha Bandhan and Eknathji Punyatithi with full fervor. Raksha Bandhan doesn’t merely mean a promise by the brother to defend his sister; it means everyone should defend others. It’s a pledge not only to protect our friends and near and dear ones but we pledge to protect the animals, trees and everything that is there in nature also.
