Student volunteers have approached various organizations and companies for research and implementation of the same. These programs have been successful and well received by one and all.

Daan Utsav - The Joy Of Giving
Daan Utsav” was a weeklong event that culminated into a donation drive on 8th October. The joy of giving, which was emphasized, helped students carry out various acts of kindness and to reflect on their thoughts. Students involvement in these acts deeply touched everyone’s hearts. With the help and the support of the PTA members, the students readily got themselves involved in the donation drive.
For the Diwali celebration, like last year, Utsavali 2014 took place on 8th October 2014, and was visited by all parents. The workforce consisted of students from Grades IX and X. Hand-crafted diyas, postcards, lanterns, torans, etc., which were made by students from all grades, were put on sale. Parents and teachers marveled at the work of the students, and many parents flooded the auditorium to buy these. The collected amount was donated to some NGOs as part of the Daan Utsav project
