New Horizons of Career Opportunities: Asia Bridge Program

Std XI & XII is the phase in which students are interested in exploring the various opportunities for their future career. The steady rhythm of Std I to X is over and now the students (& parents) start looking out for newer options for a good career- they long to reach out to the various upcoming fields/dimensions for better success in the current market. Instead of limiting the options to the conventional stream/options, we understand that this is the right time to get introduced to the emerging opportunities on national or international level as well. It is this very thought which gave rise to the idea of providing students insight into various future opportunities with the help of experts/professionals in the respective fields.


The much awaited Career Counseling Session on career opportunities in Japan, held on Friday, dt. 6th November 2017 was a great start for the Career Counseling planned for our students of Std. XI & XII.


Dr. Vipin Deo from Shizuoka University, Japan conducted a very informative session about the career opportunities offered under the ABP (Asia Bridge Program)sponsored by the Japanese Government in an endeavor to open new pathways of higher education in Japan, for deserving students from India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. He was accompanied by Mr. Ulhas Acharya, Director, CEO, Sun and Sands Info Pvt. Ltd.

IMG_9920 IMG_9930

He not only presented a vivid picture of the Shizoaka University and the Japanese culture & lifestyle but also briefed about the various facilities available for the students, once they are accepted as scholars under this program. Dr. Deo presented the entire admission schedule (ABP) for the current year including the important dates for the entrance exam etc. He also distributed the brochures and admission schedule copies to the students. Mr. Acharya assured the students about the security of students in Japan. He expressed confidence in the Japanese security system especially regarding the safety issues of girl-students.


We shared the enthusiasm of the students as they asked questions and got their queries resolved. We felt the message had definitely reached the students when many of them stayed back even after the session to interact with the guests.


So, here’s to a great start for the bright future of our children!!…- until the next session, keep yourselves tuned in…


Young Govindas celebrate Dahi Handi Celebration

Gokul Ashtami was an occasion of fun and frolic, an absolutely exhilarating time for all the dancing and frolicking young Govindas of Std I & II as well as the little ones from the Pre-primary section!
The teachers charmed the children with the stories of the fun-loving Lord Krishna. ‘As Lord Krishna was born on Janmashtami Day in the month of Shravan at midnight, this day is celebrated all over India with much festivity. The devotees observe fasting and pay their obeisance to Lord Krishna.’ They told the kids, as they listened in rapture.

IMG_9920 IMG_9930

The upbeat mood for the Dahi Handi Celebration was all set by feet tapping songs and the festive wear in which the young students were decked up!
In accordance to the custom, when the students made a huge circle by holding their hands and sang with their teachers, the fun had merely begun. Just as Lord Krishna and his poor cowherd friends loved milk, curd and butter kept in high hung ‘Handis’, three beautifully decorated ‘Handis’ were hung in the Kg Sports Area. And weren’t the little prancing ‘Gwalas’ all too thrilled to break these ‘Handis’ with the help of the school staff!! Not only did they dance and sing to the tune with their teachers but also enjoyed the ‘Prasad’ later consisting of puffed rice and sugar burst.
As the child Krishna enjoyed the dance with his friends, our little children also danced joyfully to their heart’s content as they cheerily said, ‘Govinda Ala re Ala’!

Rakhis for the City Rakshaks

Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi Pornima was celebrated in its true spirit by our students of Primary Section. Not only did the young students enjoy making lovely Rakhis for our City Rakshaks- The Soldiers, the Police & the Fire Fighters but also wrote letters full of heartfelt thanks and adoration for them.
Every civilian is indebted to our Indian soldiers who sacrifice their personal comforts for our well being and security. As an acknowledgement to their loyalty, duty, personal courage, selfless service, integrity and honor, colorful Rakhis made by std IV and V as well as the letters written by Std. IV to VII were sent by post to our national heroes- the Indian Soldiers!

On the day of Rakhi Pornima, all the children from Std I, II, III, along with their teachers visited the Police Station at Warje. The cheer and encouragement by the Police Staff was very heartwarming and our young ambassadors responded enthusiastically. As a token of respect and affection towards these persons who protect the civilians through thick and thin, the little ones tied Rakhis and gave them the letters of thanks they had written for the ocassion!

IMG_9920 IMG_9930

Police Inspector, Mr Bajirao Muley appreciated this gesture and engaged with everyone in a friendly interaction. He pointed out the drawbacks in studying only theory or bookish knowledge and expressed the importance of developing practical approach towards life through direct learning. Mr. Muley said that such student visits were a welcome approach towards understanding the facts in life. He added that even if English is a language in demand and a popular medium of education nowadays, the children should also be well versed in their mother tongue.

The Rakhi Celebration continued in great rejoicing at the Fire Station at Erandwane. Mr. Kamble and his team caught the attention of all the young minds as they started demonstrating various fire extinguishers used for extinguishing different types of fire and also the equipments used for the different types of rescue operations. They also shared vital information regarding safety measures with all. Their thrilling demonstrations were complimented by the excited expressions in the kids’ eyes. The celebration reached a special moment when the students tied Rakhis and gave the Bravehearts, their letters of thanks!

These festive moments were the best Rakhi gifts one could think of having as all bonded over the delicate silk thread of affection and appreciation!!
