Mother's Day Celebration
Mother's Day celebration at GD Goenka High School was a wonderful opportunity for students to express their love, gratitude and appreciation towards their mothers. It was an occasion when children created beautiful and innovative crafts, cards, songs and performed dances to celebrate the special bond they share with their mom.
Teachers also encouraged students to share stories about their mothers and how much they love them. The idea behind Mother's Day celebration in schools was not just to express that our learners not only love and take care of their Moms but it was also an excellent opportunity for children to develop empathy, emotional intelligence and social values such as kindness, gratitude and compassion which will help molding themselves into a better person in future.
To commemorate the 2585th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, students of GD Goenka High School celebrated Buddha Purnima by preaching the teachings of Lord Buddha.
Let us remember Lord Buddha's teachings and always be on the path of knowledge.
Happy Buddha Purnima

A Health checkup was set up for conditions such as high blood pressure or cholesterol levels so the staff can identify any potential health issues early on.

GD Goenka High School had organised its Investiture Ceremony to appoint the Board of Honours for the academic year 2023-24. The ceremony was held to give recognition and responsibilities to those students who have shown exceptional leadership qualities and abilities.
During the Investiture Ceremony, students who have been selected for leadership positions were given badges, sashes and ranks that signify their positions. These badges are a symbol of trust, responsibility, and accountability.
The ceremony is an opportunity for us to discuss the goals and objectives for the academic year with the new leaders. It inspires the student to become leaders and work towards achieving their goals for their school.
We believe, The Investiture Ceremony is a great way for students to develop their leadership skills and take charge of their school. It not only recognises their accomplishments but also empowers them to make a difference in the learners community. The ceremony can create a sense of unity and pride among the students, who feel a sense of responsibility towards their institution.
