Happy Independence Day INDIA!

It's been 60 years since India won their independence, and our children at Gurukulam sure know how to celebrate this day.

It started with a prayer, followed by hosting our Flag with our Chief Guest - Honorable Mr. Justice K. Sampath.
We also honored our sponsors for all their loving financial support. Mr ShanBhag, who donated the teachers' table and chairs for our school. Mrs. Mythili Ravi Shankar who sponsered Visual Aids, and Mr and Mrs Sunil Asher who donated lunch for our kids.

Our children performed dances, skits and songs.
Parents and Guest enjoyed the event and so did the Staff of Gurukulam!
A big thank you to all! : )
