A Significant Triumph

Dr. Shashi Tharoor, the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, an eminent personality and a person who is known to be keen about quality education in India, inaugurated Aura Edify Global School, Kodungallur.
Kodungallur echoed with the School Song of Edify Schools and so amidst the shimmering back waters and lovely hill sides of Kerala, began another year of guiding and mentoring of yet another generation of eager learners who will become critical and compassionate thinkers, dedicated learners for life and contributing members of the local and global community.
Dr. Tharoor's presence, as the Chief Guest, added grace to the ceremony. He called it "a significant triumph". His inspiring words that- 'Education is not all about well -filled minds but very much about well- formed minds' left a lasting impression on every body's mind. He planted a Bahunia sapling in the school premises, which would bear the imprint of his message – 'True education is what is left behind in your mind when everything else is forgotten'. The lighting of the lamp of wisdom was a special feature, that evening.

Ashraf, announced with pride, the birth of an International School, which has got as its legacy – a signature school with excellent Infrastructure at the very starting.

After a short break, the parents and guests settled down to watch a lively presentation by the newly admitted students of Kodungallur School, which lasted a dazzling half hour. The Odissi dance performed by the girls of the Primary classes was amazing. The English skit- Aura Shows the Way- gave an inkling into the children's capacity to record their voices after a thorough audition and then act it out on stage. Besides, an Action song by the tiny tots, the primary students performed a breath taking energetic fusion dance by both boys and girls. The entire presentation was a window to fresh talent yet to be explored.
One of the Directors, Mr. Karim, delivered the Vote of Thanks. With all humility, he thanked all dignitaries, guests, parents, staff and students, not forgetting the Almighty, without whose shower of blessings, a new monument of learning wouldn't have been born.
