An event eagerly looked forward to, in our annual year book is the Kid’s World Annual Day. It is the culmination of the year’s efforts, filled with a mixed bag of joys, successes, tensions and pains. Through all these situations the teacher stands tall and stoic and brings out every bit of talent, in every child assigned to her. Today’s show was a magical output of Indian dances of various states from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, with a grand finale of patriotic songs set to a lovely pattern of dance. The children of LKG AND NURSERY, who are aged just about 3 to 4 years, put up an amazing show of synchronising their tiny feet and small arms to the beats of the music and it seemed as if the songs too, were on their lips. The colourful costumes and accessories added to the aura of the dances. The chief guest was the Provincial Superior Sr. Mini (Provincial superior), and other guests included Sr.Siji our Principal, Sr.Jiji (Superior of Aradhana Convent), Sr.Shiny (Treasurer), and Sr. Lalitha (Treasurer of the Society). The enthusiasm of the parents was extremely heart warming and they had turned up in large numbers.
The PPT presentations added a special beautiful dimension to the entire show.
The theme was ‘DANCE AND FEEL ALIVE’. The joy, fun and freedom from tensions and worries are maximum achieved through synchronization of body movements to the fascinating beats of music. Young or old, bring cheer and liveliness into your life with music and dance.

A visit to an institution named “Christy Home”-on 14 /12/18- Friday:-
A visit to an orphanage is a life changing experience as it is filled with emotions and sentiments. The Aradhanites were lucky to get an opportunity to visit Christy home in Kolar. There were around 25 girls whose parents are affected with HIV. Students had mixed feelings after seeing those girls. They were well dressed after seeing the staff and students of Aradhana Academy. The contributions and the gifts collected from our School students were given to them. They entertained us by music and dance. The Christmas carols were sung and games were conducted for them. The Christy home campus was massive with big trees, grown with fruits and vegetables. They sheltered some animals like rabbits and birds. Finally we left the campus by evening. On the way back we had yummy lunch.
Big thanks to our beloved Principal Sister Siji for giving an opportunity to serve the girls of Christy Home and taking us to a wonderful place.
