At Deepalaya, we do not believe in the “all study and no play” policy. Rather, we lay immense importance on each child’s art, expression, pattern of development, and latent talent, and always go an extra mile to enrich childhood experience, by organizing periodic co-curricular activities at our schools and learning centers.
On 17th and 18th January, Soubhagya Nirmalam Foundation (SNF) conducted drawing and recitation competitions at Ramditti J R Narang Deepalaya Learning Centre, commemorating the Birth Centenary of their founder-father late Sri Nirmalam (Ajjarapu Venkata Rao). The foundation has been set up to pursue certain social objectives including girl child education, the cause to which late Sri Nirmalam devoted his life from 1918-1991. He advocated that every person should contribute to the society, and authored many books to inculcate moral values among readers.
The drawing competition was held on 17th January in several units (LKG, UKG, Class I, II, VTC computer, Remedial morning and afternoon, ASHA and FADA) of Deepalaya participated. Mrs. Shanta Sastri and Dr. Faye from SNF visited our classes in the morning, while the drawing competition was being conducted. Hereafter, the poem recitation competition was held on the same day in Class I, II and ASHA NFE units. It was extended up to 18th January in other units, in presence of Mrs. Shanta Sastri and others. Mr. Maheswari and Mrs. Sweta were present during recitation competition in the afternoon as judges. Approximately 282 children participated in both the competitions, most of them showing unprecedented enthusiasm. The prize distribution ceremony will be held on 23rd January.
