Udgam School has been shouldering social responsibilities right from its inception. In the latest drive the school participated whole-heartedly in the Charity Walk-2013 organized in Ahmedabad on Sunday, February 17, 2013. There were 374 participants in all from the school which accounted for the highest group of participants from any individual organization to take part in the charity walk. Team Udgam included the Executive Director, Shri Manan Choksi, Joint Director, Smt Bhumi Choksi, the Principal, Ms Radhika Iyer, teachers, staff, parents and students.
The purpose of the walk was to create health awareness and to raise funds for NGOs and Udgam School participants donated generously to the Prabhat Education Foundation, an NGO involved in the upliftment of education. Caps for all participants were sponsored by the school. The Principal, Ms Radhika Iyer, also helped students from other schools to register for the event.
Enthusiasm was high even in the early hours of the morning. Udgam School had their own live music band playing to encourage the supporters. There were four music bands in all in the event, helping to keep the spirits high.
Principal, Ms Radhika Iyer, said “We are overwhelmed by the enthusiastic participation, especially by parents. I am happy to observe that even the morning chill could not keep the people from participating in the charity walk.
