    The presentation conveyed the story of an island whose inhabitants were feelings, namely, Happiness, Vanity, Sadness, and Love. Upon hearing the news that the island will sink to the bottom of the ocean, all feelings except for Love prepare their boats to leave the island. Love decides to stay back and preserve the island’s paradise until the last moment. When the time arrives for Love to leave the island, none of the feelings were willing to extend a helping hand. An elderly man, however, aids Love and helps it to the land. Love then meets Knowledge to find out it was Time who came to its rescue.

    The moral of the presentation was that time heals everything and can understand how great Love is. When things may look bleak, Time can solve anything. Things may not have a solution today, but tomorrow one will.

Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, the Hon`ble Vice President of India, graced the occasion as the chief guest. He was accompanied by the dignitaries, Home Minister of Telangana, Shri Naini Narshimha Reddy, our Founder Director, Mrs. Ratna Reddy, and the chairman of Shri Shakti Group, Mr. D. V. Manohar.

    The evening began with Swagathanjali, a vibrant invocatory dance ballet by CHIREC students, welcoming the Hon`ble Chief Guest. Swagathanjali wove together four dance forms to depict the essence of CHIREC International School, and was choreographed by National Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee, Ms. Deepika Reddy.

    A short film about CHIREC was unveiled, depicting CHIRECs diverse journey. From its inception to laying the foundation stone, the film showcased the rise of CHIREC as a pioneer in holistic education, with a program that balances academics with extra-curricular activities. The video captured the true essence of CHIREC when it displayed multitude of student`s activities in sports and education.

    Mrs. Ratna Reddy, Founder Director of CHIREC International School, addressed the gathering by talking about her journey and excitement to look forward to CHIREC`s coming decades as the school establishes itself in the hearts of many parents and students as one of the most innovative schools in the country. She discussed some of CHIREC`s plans, including the upcoming 9.5-acre international campus with state-of-the-art sports facilities. To encourage and foster innovation, Mrs. Ratna unveiled CHIREC Innovation Hub (C-Hub), a first-of-its-kind innovation hub in Hyderabad for students to design, experiment, build and invent novel solutions to the world`s problems.

    Mr. D. V. Manohar, Chairman of the Shri Shakti Group, spoke about Mrs. Ratna`s endeavours in curating CHIREC at every step, spanning decades. He invited the Hon`ble Chief Guest to unveil the Veni Rao Foundation, a charitable trust in memory of the late parents of Mrs. Ratna Reddy and Mr. D.V. Manohar. On behalf of the Veni Rao Foundation, the Vice-President distributed scholarships to meritorious candidates to recognize their academic achievements. These students, whose family income is less than Rs. 10000/- and have secured more than 85% in their qualifying examinations, hail from across Hyderabad and Rajahmundry.

    The Vice President, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu took to the stage and said that India is quickly becoming a global leader and lifting millions out of poverty and added that the country requires skilled youth to accelerate the growth process. He addressed the audience and stressed on the need to teach students the diverse culture and heritage of India. He expressed his disappointment when he underscored how students are memorizing and reproducing texts, thus hampering their intellectual growth.

    The Vice President suggested that educational institutions and policy makers must take steps to reduce the burden on students. He said, “I feel that the overall education system from school level to higher education should be completely revamped to ensure our institutions churn out ideal citizens. First and foremost, the syllabus at the school level must be drastically cut to reduce the load on students. The time spent by students in school should be divided equally between the classroom and play field.”

    Shri Venkaiah Naidu talked about how CHIREC grooms its students to be leaders who will change the global landscape in a positive way. He also applauded CHIRECs eco-friendly initiatives incorporated into the routines of the students by integrating the environment and sustainable initiatives throughout the school through academics, management, policies, and community activities.

    The Vice President was presented a pencil sketch of himself by a CHIREC student.

I chose table-tennis and played only that. My coach took me to tournaments and it was super fun. I remember one of the incidents. One day there was no car and my mother asked me to take an auto from Abids to Banjara Hills to get to the summer camp, which was 10-12 kms far. I couldn`t find a single auto. Instead of going back home, I started walking towards Banjara Hills and reached the venue. I later gave back the money of the auto fare to my mother. It shows that where there is a will, there is a way. I can call myself the patent to the `pad yatra` for First Summer Camp.

While games like ‘Build a Tower’ , ‘Roll the Ball’ and ‘ Fun with Hula-Hoops’ put their balancing skills to test, they were given an opportunity to display their histrionics by enacting the evergreen film dialogues in ‘Sabse Bada Kalaakar’. The fitness freaks had an energetic ‘Zumba’ session, while the others tried their luck at games like ‘I am a Gladiator’, ‘ Hit the Coins’ and ‘We are Family,’ organized on the grounds.
