Children’s Academy Group of Schools completed 50 years of excellence in the field of education. They celebrated the golden jubilee event at Fr. Justin Grounds, Malad West recently.
The event commenced with the traditional lighting of the lamp and a group song-a soulful tribute rendered by the students of the Academy.
The golden jubilee logo was unveiled amidst splendid fireworks. Rohit Bhat, CEO, presented the welcome address. He briefed the audience about the series of events planned in the golden jubilee year.
The school’s coffee table book christened ‘Smaranika’ was launched at the time.
Bhat said, “Students are smarter, sharper and well-aware today. This changes the teachers’ role and requires them to be dynamic too. Teachers fulfil the role of an educator, a counsellor, facilitator and a comforter too, in case of crisis. There has been a complete metamorphosis in the past few years and things will further change in the times to come.”
He further added, “It is a moment of joy as well as pride for us to celebrate the Golden Jubilee. In these 50 years we have ensured that growth is not only in volume but also by adding more substance to our schools. This is just the beginning, and I am sure my parents, the founders of the school, are smiling as they see our efforts.”
The main attraction of the occasion - the History of the school was a poignant and stirring song and dance enactment of the life and experiences of the founder Principal, Late VV Bhat.
The act included dance performances, qawwali and malkhamb.
Children indulged in fun rides, played in inflatable castles, they met their favourite movie characters in the form of mascots, and took selfies at the selfie booth. They also played games like ring-toss, high striker, soccer darts, basketball, etc.
The students and guests enjoyed lip-smacking food. Mouthwatering chaat or peppery pasta, pizza or Chinese food, traditional Indian sweets or frozen dessert, everything was savoured during this event.
The parents and students danced to their heart’s content as the glittering evening drew to a close on the power-packed lively beats of DJ Lloyd.
