A motivating speech by veteran educationist, Shri Rajabhai Pathak, left an indelible mark on the audience. The speaker of the conference was Swami Sukhabodhananda.He is the founder Chairman of Prasanna Trust. It was a great honour for the school to have him as a speaker. His speech was based on Alacrity to life. He addressed our teachers and explained them as to how they can expand their vision which in turn would help the children for success in life. 
The conference was a platform for knowledge sharing and an opportunity to discuss the successes and failures of 2017-18 and the future plans of 2018-19. Using powerpoint presentations, the Vice-Principals of Udgam School for Children and Zebar School for Children spoke at length about challenges they faced last year and the changes they will bring in their respective sections in the future. Executive Director,Sri Manan Choksi then presented his ideas which inspired the teachers on dealing with day to day challenges in schools with parents and children. He spoke at length on how parents, school and teachers have a common goal and they can unite and give intelligent, hardworking and healthy responsible citizens to the country.
Both schools have an accomplished and dedicated team of teachers and staff and it is quite difficult to decide who is more deserving. Next was Employee Recognition and Motivation through awards to those who had proved themselves to be a shade better than their colleagues this year. Finally, Ms.Reena Kahlon, Vice-Principal of Zebar School for Children, gave the Vote of Thanks.
