An Interactive session with Rishabh Mehra our Ex-Student










When I was told that the conference for Pan India Case Study is happening again, I was THRILLED. I was expecting it to be as much fun as it was the last time and I was not disappointed. When we left the school full of enthusiasm and anxiety, we hadn’t thought of the possibility of getting lost- but as it turned out, we did. Initially, my partner and I were extremely worried that till the time we would get there the conference would have already started. However, surprisingly we were the first ones to arrive. As the students started pouring in, the conference commenced with a charged atmosphere. We were all divided into groups and each given a topic to think upon. We started by planning the activities for day one, and as everybody started coming up with unique ideas, I realised the importance of teamwork. Except for the 20 minutes when we broke for lunch, my team-mates and I argued and debated upon every event present in our sheet. At the end of the day, we had turned the original plan upside down and had enhanced it to a better one. The day, for me, was extremely fruitful and I’m looking forward to future meetings.



Van Mahotsava

Delhi is celebrating van mahotsava festival from 3rd August to 14th August. It is celebrated as a festival of life. In India it was started as a crusade to save mother earth. The name Van Mahotsava means “the festival of trees”. Van Mahotsav is an annual tree-planting festival in India, which was initiated in the year 1950 by India’s Union Minister for Agriculture, Kulapati Dr.K M Munshi.

It began in July 1947 after a flourishing tree planting drive was undertaken in Delhi, in which national leaders like Dr Rajendra Prasad and Jawaharlal Nehru participated.

Therefore, our school is also participating in this drive to symbolize the importance of trees and invited Mrs. Afshan Yasmin who is the deputy director of education (South – West A zone), for tree plantation drive.  This festival of trees is a beautiful initiative to save the environment, to which we owe a lot.

Principal Mr D.M. Sharma motivated all  Goenkans to join hands in  saving mother earth by making this small contribution and requested everyone to  try and actively involve themselves in this practice as well.
