Unhalloween Celebration - 2023

During our childhood, most of us were afraid of something or the other. Some of the most common fears are fear of the dark, fear of creepy crawlies, bats, shadows, and imaginary things etc. At Podar Prep, we want to provide our children the opportunity to understand these fears in a safe environment. Podar Prep provided this wonderful opportunity to our children at our celebration - Unhalloween – Lets conquer our fears.

When children are given the opportunity to confront their fears that they have, they are able to see things in a new perspective. When we face our fears and overcome them, we feel stronger, happier, and more capable of appreciating the excitement of the moment.

Gandhiji and Shashtriji Jayanthi - 2023

Podar Prep is celebrating Gandhiji and Shastriji Jayanti with the theme “Homage to Bapu and Shastriji”. So come with your child to experience the life journey of Bapuji and Shastriji through various activities related to them.

Where Gandhiji promoted truth, non-violence, and equality; Shastriji promoted the White Revolution – a national campaign to increase the production and supply of milk – by supporting the Amul milk co-operative at Anand, Gujarat, and Green revolution- which led to an increase in food grain production, especially in the states of Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh.

Both are heroes that our children must grow up knowing and relating to. Children need good role models during their growing years but we often limit their vision only to celluloid heroes. It’s time to give your child real life heroes, inspiring role models, so let us begin with Bapu and Shastriji as your child’s heroes.
