It is rightly said that the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

 Aiming for a brighter future, a responsible nation, a beautiful world and a compassionate citizen, Role Play Activity was organized for the students of class I and II wherein, the enthusiastic students of class I dressed up as extinct animals and the students of class II paid homage to our Indian scientists.

The Preliminary Round of the same was held on Friday, 21.07.2017 and the Final Round was on             Friday, 28 .07.2017.
