Teachers and class 9 students of St. Paul’s English School, J.P. Nagar, visited an orphanage run by Samruddhi Charitable Trust and were accorded a warm welcome.

Students interacted with children in the age group 3 to 7. They presented a cultural programme, beginning with an invocation song by Sunidhi. This was followed by a classical dance and one-act play by Poojitha and Shreyas. Later, the students organised games for the children, and distributed snacks to them. They donated cooking oil to the orphanage.

The visit was an eye-opener for students, who got an insight into the lives of these children, who seemed to find happiness despite the disadvantages they faced.


The SARS march past platoon of Carmel School, Padmanabhanagar, which participated at the Republic Day parade at Manekshaw Parade Grounds, brought laurels to the institution. The platoon won first prize in group IV category and received a trophy from Governor H.R. Bhardwaj.
