The dawn of Sunday, January 7th 2024 brought more than 2100 Ahmedabadis to Udgam Run, the Family Marathon. Mr. Manan Choksi, the Executive Director of Udgam School for Children had a vision to revolutionize “Family Time” and turn it into something thoughtful.
For its maiden season, Udgam Run saw families braving through winter chills and striving towards healthy decisions. We are bringing in a culture of positive change that motivates kids, parents, friends, and peers alike to spend quality time together – away from gadgets, with an agenda to make their bodies healthier.
Udgam Run, the Family Marathon aimed at fostering stronger emotional bonds, informed decisions towards fitness, and better choices when it comes to time management in terms of screen time and gadget dependence.
The Family Marathon consisted of 3km, 5km, and 10km race categories. Invigorating sessions of Zumba kept the energy levels at an all-time high throughout the morning.
We look forward to continuing the culture of family fitness through such events.
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.
Udgamite Harshvi K Shah, studying in 12-C, participated in the Virtual Inter-School ‘Eloquence- Declamation’ Competition arranged by Zydus School, in which she was awarded a certificate and memento for securing 3rd position.
The competition was held on 21st August 2021, where students of secondary and senior secondary participated from around 30 other schools.
Harshvi performed Rose’s Monologue from August Wilson’s Pulitzer Winning Play Fences. The role of Rose has been taken up by Viola Davis in recent years, on and off-broadway. For which she has won both Oscar and Tony. The monologue is about a woman who breaks down upon hearing of her husband’s affair.
Congratulations Harshvi! We are proud of you.
We take immense pride to announce that the students of our school participated in the National Inter-School Debate Competition 2020 and stood to be the Runners-up.

The topic of the debate was ‘Girl empowerment has turned into boy hate’. The debaters of each panel gave a tough competition and made the audience believe both views to be correct. We lost merely by only two points in the finale.

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.
