The annual day of the Sri Chaitanya Techno School at its Dilsukhnagar Zone campus was celebrated with pomp, making it unforgettable for students and the audience. The Lalitha Kala Thoranam was full of students, their parents and invited guests.
Indian Police Service officer Gopinatha Reddy, who was present as the chief guest, underscored the need for students to imbibe values taught by elders and in school to grow up as socially-responsible citizens. He urged parents to ensure that their wards learnt to respect elders. He gave away awards to students who registered an outstanding performance.
About 350 students of the Oasis School of Excellence in Raidurg near here participated in a one-day ‘Aero-Modelling’ workshop at the Lake Stadium & Resorts conducted by the Aviators Academy.
Students were divided into groups of five and attached to instructors who took them around an exhibition of aero models where about 50 models were on display, followed by a Ground Taxi session where they had three minutes each at the controls with the help of an instructor. Fifty of the best students were selected for ‘Dual Flying’ for which 10 Ground Taxis were used.
During the model making session, each student made a 12-inch glider using pre-cut foam board pieces with the help of teachers. The students went on to display suspended flying, in which a plane is suspended and rotated in circles for two minutes each. This was followed by simulator lessons where an onscreen projection enabled the students to learn about the history of flights, aeroplane manufacture in the USA and the like. Charan Chabra, Director, Aviators Aero Modelling Academy shared his childhood experiences when he did not even get to see a plane from up close, leave alone being allowed to touch one. He recalled how he had nurtured his ambition of becoming a pilot. He said the students needed to work hard to fulfil their dreams. Each student got a participation certificate. Pavan, Salam and Abhishek bagged the first, second and third prizes in the competitions.
