The tiny-tots of pre primary and primary section students dressed up as Radha and Krishna and danced to the beats of Janmashtami songs.

21st June 2022, Chaitanya School, Lekawada, observed a cheerful International Yoga Day in the arena. This was done through a series of “asanas” by the students of classes 5 to 12.
As Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had once said, “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature.”
At Chaitanya School it began with Surya Namaskar and went on to others, with the anchors pointing out the benefits of each.
The unification of India was beautifully integrated through Yoga, because the study of asanas is not just about mastering postures. It is about strengthening mental ability to gain a certain goal, which Shri Sardar Patel had done successfully years back. He had convinced and united the smaller states like Hyderabad, Junagarh, Jammu and Kashmir as part of our country.
Van Mahotsav was celebrated at Chaitanya School, Gandhinagar, from the 1st to 7th July 2022, by the students of classes 1 – 5.

The little ones enjoyed the time spent out of the four walls of the classrooms and amidst nature. Their interest and excitement was unbounded.
Chaitanya school endeavours to make the higher secondary students future ready not only with the in-demand skill set but also with opportunities and exposure.
