International Earth Day is celebrated to demonstrate support towards a better and sustainable earth. Since children are the upcoming generations of the world, they need to be aware of climatic changes and the importance of nature. Keeping these things in mind, the Udgamites participated with full enthusiasm and witnessed performing rallies, saying slogans loudly, making posters to bring more awareness among all.
Students also learned the importance and value of 3R’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. This encouraged the children to take action and be a part of the global movement and stay dedicated to save the planet which we call our beautiful home – The Mother Earth.
Udgam School for Children is PROUD to announce its 1st POSITION amongst the Top 15 Schools in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar National curriculum.
We wholeheartedly express our gratitude to all our students and our faculties, to set standards as high as the sky.
Without their collective effort, this wouldn’t have been possible.

Poster making has its targeted benefits on young minds. Hence a competition was organized for students of class 3. They were given various topics such as pollution, uses and sources of water etc. to make their posters. Children worked in groups and created awe-inspiring posters in which they included relevant slogans too. It was impressive to see the young learner taking keen interest in the activity and working with full team spirit. The best posters in each section were given a special sticker by the teachers.
Our students of class 7 and teachers cooked up a storm at the IIHM cooking competition. 25 students and 7 teachers participated in the competition, who were asked to bring any one dish from the category of starter, main course and dessert. The array of dishes prepared by our participants ranged from traditional ones like ‘Winter Special: Pend’, ‘Mohanthal’, ‘Shahi Custard Pudding’ to French Dish like “le pain farci au bol with Mint Mojito”, Mexican dish – ‘Burrito bowl’, Italian Pizza . Each dish had a twist of originality by the participant. The judges from Indian Institute of Hotel Management were simply awe-struck looking at the spread and the ones that caught their utmost interest were the layered chocolate cake and the chocolate walnut tart with fresh cream. Overall, it was an enjoyable and a yummy feat!
As a part of Geography subject enrichment activity , our students of class VI were assigned a project on India- our country. They had to make a PowerPoint presentation using various skills that encompassed research, analyzing information, logical planning of the sequence of information etc. Students were required to make a presentation and speak invidually infront of the whole class. Teachers were delighted to see that students spoke with absolute confidence while giving their presentation and some use laser pens etc, adding a professional touch to the whole activity. Also, students smoothly handled the questions from the audience too. This holistic activity was interactive in nature and focused on the importance of public speaking and effective communication skills among students. Like last year, this year too the activity was highly appreciated by students and parents, alike.
