Shiv Nadar School, Noida - Decennial Celebrations
The Decennial Celebrations on April 9, 2022
Shiv Nadar School completed 10 years of its existence on 9th of April, 2022. It was 10 years ago, on 9th April, 2012, when the first set of parents and teachers gathered at the Circle of Love along with Mr Nadar, planting saplings and singing 'Hamaari hi Mutthi Mein' and the national anthem, symbolising our commitment to be future forward educators and nation-builders of the highest levels of excellence.
The celebrations started with entire community of Shiv Nadar School Noida gathering at the Circle of Love, where the Principal, Mrs. Anju Soni, reiterated our commitment to the values and philosophy that the school stands for.
The occasion was graced by Swami Prem Parivartan, also known as Peepal Baba who conducted an orientation session for the essence of tree plantation. We planted trees around the school, as a commitment to the future of the planet, for cleaner air and water, but most of all, for our own happiness! The plantation drive was carried out by our oldest and latest parents, students and teachers.
Mr. Hitesh Jalgaonkar, Associate Manager – Green Spaces, HCL Harit and Mr. Ravi Sharma from HCL Foundation put up engrossing conversations around the initiatives of HCL Harit and local biodiversity and related aspects.
The school welcomed Shafali Verma, one of our own students, from the Batch of 2023 and member of the Women’s Indian Cricket Team. Shafali not only mingled with her batch mates but also very sportingly participated in the Walk the Talk Series in which she was interviewed by her peers at school, Mariya Abbas, Shafali’s batch mate and a budding footballer and Saatvik Das, a budding sports journalist from Grade 11. Arjuna Bhattacharya, outgoing CGC Prefect 2021-22 felicitated Shafali by presenting a portrait of Shafali made by Diya Gupta of grade 8.
The Parent Partnership Office inaugurated the Decennial Edition of Reflections EKA – a collection of parents’ reflections, experiences and stories. The staff carried back a sapling to mark their commitment towards earth mindedness.
The Decennial Celebrations had a befitting finale to the day by practicing Mindfulness all together in a session conducted by the Ahimsa Trust, a practice so dear to each one at Shiv Nadar School Noida. Mr. Shantum Seth, Founder, Ahimsa Trust initiated a course on Mindfulness across all Shiv Nadar School campuses with an aim to create a mindful community.
