“A healthy outside starts from healthy inside.”
It is important to inculcate healthy eating habits in students from the beginning, to lead a healthy lifestyle. Healthy Food Fiesta Week was organised online from 20th September, 2021 to 24th September, 2021 to make students aware about the fact that eating right is a key to healthy living and good eating habits go a long way in improving our health and nourishing the body. A fit and active lifestyle demands the right nutrition for the body to function.
Students were given an insight into healthy food and good eating habits through various activities in a fun filled way. Students need the stimulation of being a physical part of their learning, trying out new things and interacting through a hands-on approach.

Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival celebrated with much fervour across India. It is important to remember that Lokmanya Tilak was the architect of this mass celebration. Lord Ganesh or the elephant deity is considered the God of wisdom and new beginnings. Thus, people across the world worship Him before initiating any work. It is believed that he removes obstacles and blesses the course of the believer.
The true essence of Ganesh Chaturthi lies in the fact that the devotees worship Lord Ganesh to rid their lives of all the sins and substitute them with knowledge and wisdom.
