Pune: As part of the Lifeschool Foundation’s Keep Moving Movement, 40 top-scoring students from the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)-run schools were given a long ride in brand new Mercedes-Benz cars.
The event was organised by the Lifeschool Foundation to celebrate the success of the students. It was held at the Mercedes Benz’s BU Bhandari showroom situated on the Pune-Bengaluru Highway. During the event both the parents and the 40 students were felicitated and gifted certificates of merit by personalities from different fields.
The parents, mostly coming from low-income group, but working hard so that their children get good education, were overawed with the kind of reception they received.
Meher Pudamjee, Chairperson of Thermax Global, Chandravadan Bhandari and Devendra Bhandari of BU Bhandari and Sons, Narendra Goidani, Director of Lifeschool Foundation, Vikas Bhandari, Kuldeep Ruchandani, Raj Muchhal and Bharti Goidani were present on the occasion.
“Lifeschool Foundation helps these students to look at other avenues including how to behave in public life and how to look at different day to day challenges,” Goidani said.
The Lifeschool Foundation conducts about seven lectures at various Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) schools during a period of three months that are aimed at confidence building, inspiration, and focusing on life aims.
Speaking on the occasion, Pudamjee said, “It is the teacher, who plays a very important role in generating interests in students about different things. It is not necessary for students to take up medical or engineering profession if only they get good marks. They should be allowed to follow their dreams. Students should earn success through self-confidence, which will help them do well in future,” she said.
