The principals applied tilak on young children at the gate and welcomed them into the school by giving them toffees. Teachers made different types of welcome-back posters for the children and put them on the walls. Handprints of children were taken on these posters. After this, teachers said just as the handprints of all the children are together on this poster, in the same way all of them will also stay together in the class. After this, all the students told their teachers and friends what they did during the holidays and learned new things. MD Tarwinder Singh said the children were given such an environment on the first day of school as they do not feel the burden of studies suddenly on their return to schools fter so many days. During the summer vacations, children get away from studies, so that they take some time off to come back to this environment. CEO Monica Mandotra said children were the beauty of the school. The school management always tries to give such an environment to the children so that they can easily adjust themselves in it.

Congratulating the participants on having their own space journey of dreams, LPU Pro-Chancellor Rashmi Mittal wished all to emerge as future space leaders. Space Camp was an experience where participants re-lived their dreams of astronauts’ stardom and deep passions for space science. It focused on the basics of rocketry and learning various means that astronauts used to get to the moon, Mars, and beyond. During various workshops at the camp, participants learnt to design a satellite, fabricate remotely radio-controlled drones, and learned about intrinsic details on planets, stars and space elements.
