To commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr. Abdul Kalam, 15th October was observed as “Reading Day”. Students of Orchids The International School – Koparkhairane, a popular school near Mahape, were asked to get a book of their choice to participate in this activity. The objective of this program was to instill a lifelong reading habit in the young learners. Students enjoyed the reading session where they read their own book and also exchanged books for reading with their friends. An Inter-house Science Quiz based on the life and achievements of Dr. Abdul Kalam was also conducted by the Science Teacher. Students had been informed in advance about the Quiz so they were able to answer well.
