The Annual Day with the theme ‘Celebrate differences’ unfurled beautiful cultural performances at St. Francis School, Madhurawada, here on Friday.

He also explained the importance of having good communication skills and how the schools help improve the skills in the long run. “True education is beyond literacy and it lies in building the character of the student,” he said.
