Teachers' Day is celebrated each year to commemorate the birth anniversary of a great Educationist, Scholar and the 2nd President of Independent India – Sr. Sarvapali Radhakrishnan.
Goldcrest High invited a few teachers from 'Aarambh' – an NGO that runs centres for educating the under privileged children, in Navi Mumbai . The celebration began with an introduction of the guest teachers from 'Aarambh'. One of the guest teachers shared his experiences and ideas about the work done by them in their organisation. The school staff and students saluted their efforts by presenting hand-made greeting cards to them. The cultural event, compered by the students of Grades 6 - 7, began with a dance performance by the little rock stars of Grade 2. A play titled 'Epic Ramayana 2050' depicting the life of Ram, Sita and Laxman in the year 2050 had everybody in splits. This was followed by a Fashion Show which comprised various professionals paying respect to the teachers who motivated and guided them to excel in their respective fields.
The Principal and the Head of the Primary section thanked the students for putting up such a wonderful show. They sent through the teachers from 'Aarambh' 100 school bags for the children that were purchased with a part of the Auction Day proceeds. Godrej cupboards for housing library books were also donated to Aarambh.
Education is a means to awaken the nation's conscience.
Goldcrest High truly believes in the holistic development of its students.
A school plays an important role in inculcating true values in its students and sensitizing them to society. On 14 February i.e. Valentine's Day, one student representative from each class visited the Mermier Bal Ashram along with their teachers, Mrs. Mamta Sharma and Mrs Sheena Sethi.
They distributed the gifts collected by the students to the orphanage children as a gesture of their love and support.
The orphanage children reciprocated by singing a Welcome song and later a Thank You song for the students and staff of Goldcrest High.
