On 12th February, 2020, we celebrated 16 years of love, learning, joy, togetherness and friendship! Since it’s inception in February of 2004, Buddhi has grown from an early learning center to a full fledged school today, offering education up to secondary and higher secondary years, and all the while maintaining its very special character!
Our principal, Mrs. Rajeshwari Kulkarni took us on a wonderful trip down memory lane and made it a joyous occasion for everyone at school.
The middle and high schoolers baked marble cakes to mark this day and Mrs. Uma Naidu and Ms. Amuda who have both been part of our teaching team since the early days, had the honour of cutting the celebration cake. Anmol and Eshan who started school at our ‘Dollars Colony’ campus as little preschoolers, and remembering their time there well, were thrilled to be given the first bite of the cake.
The Children were all very excited to see a collage of throwback pictures from 16 years ago while older students and teachers alike crowded over these pictures, some reminiscing delightedly and others looking on with great curiousity. Needless to say there were plenty of questions and chatter all around. The highlight was a picture of a teacher carrying a toothless toddler in her arms, and of course there were no scores for guessing who! Yes, it was our very own dear Principal – Raji ma’am, and in her arms was none other than little Yasho with her unmistakable grin!
Slices of the marble cake were served to all and the students and children were thrilled to bits knowing they had baked it themselves! It was a great celebration and one that made us all reflect on what makes Buddhi one of a kind and a great place to learn and grow!
