School kids learns values and morals
Vivekanand English High School, Kurla, recently celebrated Guru Purnima and hosted a programme organised by Sanskruti Samvardhan Pratishthan to enhance student’s moral education, inculcate Indian values and create responsible citizens.
The programme was also aimed at familiarising children with great leaders and mythological heroes.
The program began with the lighting of the lamp followed by students reciting a mantra and a prayer.
Students then performed a song based on Guru Purnima.
The chief guest Mangesh Kudalkar, MLA from Kurla Vidhan Sabha constituency; and guest of honour Mohan Salekar, founder and director of Sanskruti Samvardhan Pratishthan; along with the school’s committee members were given a floral welcome and felicitated by the principal, Dr Asha Binukumar.
Students shared how being associated with moral education activity from the past three years has helped them in inculcating moral and cultural values. They shared their experiences through stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata.
The program then proceeded with the unveiling of books that are based on the epics of Indian culture.
These books codify the dos and don’ts of human behaviour, and form the foundation of character formation and personality development. The guests also shared their views about this project. They stated that students should not only be given excellent education but also provided with moral values so that they can effectively serve their nation.
The program culminated by a vote of thanks proposed by Binukumar.
