February 17, 2019, Pune – The students of C.P. Goenka International School (Pune), a well-known name in the ambit of education, conducted a blood donation drive for the Indian Army on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at their new campus in Wagholi. The event was organised by the students of CPGIS and it garnered an overwhelming contribution of more than 100 parents.
The drive was a distinct initiative for the school as the camp was specially organised for the Nation’s Army. Around 50 blood samples were collected and sent to the Army hospital – Southern command. The camp was a successful event and the immense contribution of the students and the support received by the parents, made it noteworthy. CPGIS Pune has always been quite instrumental in organising activities for the welfare of the society as a gesture of gratitude towards the country and ensuring that we create responsible adults by imbibing in them values to give back to society from an early age.
The Principal of C.P. Goenka International School, Pune, Ms. Rashmi Gupta spoke about this initiative and rightly expressed, “Our aim through this drive was to teach the students about their social responsibilities towards their country. We were really happy with the kind of response we received from the parents. We are proud that we were able to contribute and lend a hand to the Indian army in the smallest way possible. As we truly feel that they are the real heros of India who safeguard us round the clock, sacrificing and selflessly rendering their duties towards our nation”.
This initiative ties up very well with our new venture in school for our learners called “valour”, through this programme we are training our children for the Indian army and also teaching them important life skills.
