Under the guidance of Pankaj Malhotra, the director of Youth services Rotary club, central Pune and leadership of Radhika, a teacher of the School, a fest was hosted having over 17 food stalls and 12 game stalls.

The game stalls had various games in which innumerable parents and students participated. To boost the enthusiasm of the participants’ small gifts were given away to the winners of each game. The most successful game was the small version of bowling, where each player had to pin all the glasses arranged in the form of a pyramid in one chance using a small tennis ball.

Parents too, contributed significantly in making this fest a huge success.

When asked the principal Jayshree Venkatraman about where is money was going to be used she said that the money will be used for the noble cause of overall development of underprivileged children.
