Sakar Celebrates Environment Day
Environment influences and shapes our life. Our entire life support system is dependent on the well being of all the species living on earth. Environment day is an opportunity for all of us to get involved in something which is critical for our shared future and work in a co-ordinated manner to empower us all to play an active role in protecting our environment. Keeping this in mind Sakar took the initiative to celebrate the environment day. Children prepared beautiful placards on “Save Environment” , “Plant more trees”, “Go green “ , “Save our Mother Earth” etc. The trustee members Mr.Ankit Patel and Ms. Deepika Patel planted the first sapling in the school premises.  Many saplings were planted by the students on the divider of New C.G.Road, near Sakar English School. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities especially being in a group and working together for a common goal. The students of class VIII not only planted the saplings but also took the responsibility of taking care of the plants by watering them regularly throughout the year.

 Yoga Day
Yoga is a method of bettering oneself physically, mentally and spiritually. It is a way of life that incorporates ethical practices, a  system of training one’s body, mind and spirit, aimed at achieving a liberated and free state of existence. On the initiative of our honourable Prime Minister shri.
