As we continue our journey through the academic year, it gives me immense pleasure to reflect on the month of July which has been notably eventful with regards to enhancing the student skill sets and preparing them for life beyond school.
I take immense pride in sharing that two of our students Arnav and Ridhi represented our School at NAE-UNICEF Summit at the UNICEF Headquarters, New York. Meanwhile Adventure Leadership Camp focused on fostering leadership qualities among our senior Oakridgers. Also, with the vision of nurturing entrepreneurial spirits among our students, we hosted an enriching Global Entrepreneurship Programme. The experiences gained by our students during these programmes will undoubtedly play a significant role in shaping their personal and academic growth.
This edition of the newsletter captures a comprehensive display of these events and more. I trust you will find it engaging and enjoyable to peruse.
