GD Goenka Public School had many reasons to celebrate on 11 August 2017. The birth of Lord Krishna, hoisting of the prestigious flag and a WIN at the SAM music Contest. The school was also lit up with exuberance as it welcomed its chief guest SadhviPragya Ji from DivyaJyotiSansthan and our lovely elders from Shiv Ashray- an Old-age home, who joined the celebrations only to add on to the fervor. The assembly commenced with unfurling the tricolor flag followed by the National Anthem. The scent of patriotism lingered as the choir group sang the song of loyalty and patriotism. The tiny Pre Primary Goenkans enthralled everyone with their performance of Krishna Leela.
The Principal of the school, Ms. RaginiKaul voiced her thoughts by quoting , “ The best classroom for a child is the feet of the elder.” She instilled in the learners the importance of the elderly in the family by saying, “Respect and love is all that they want….shoes and clothes have no meaning.” She also thanked the guests for making their remarkable presence felt.
