    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.

    “Ms. Ratna Reddy is a friend and she has done such a great job. I am very happy to be here. My son had a very good time when I joined him for the first summer camp, when he was two & a half years. Otherwise children will be running in the house all the time, once I put my son, he came back home happy and learnt music and art. During the summer camp, I will be conducting classes for flower arrangement.” -Rekha Reddy, 1st parent of Summer Camp 1989/ Teacher for Ikebana

    “I would like to congratulate the school for completing 30 years. I will be conducting art activities and showing some techniques to create artwork.” -Rangoli Garg, CHIREC Parent and Teacher

    It is an honour for me to be here. The photos and videos that we saw today brought back the memories of 1989. The first CHIREC song was written then. I would encourage the children to make the best use of the camp.” -John Geiles, teacher at 1st Summer camp

    “It is a great honour to be here. I was introduced to the summer camp 30 years back. The camp can really help enhance creativity in the long run.”-Abhishek Agarwal, Student of Summer Camp 1989

    “It has been 30 years, when I was part of the 1st Summer Camp. I was 10 years then. When you have your last exam, you feel happy. The 2 months of vacation, you want to just play cricket and there was no playstation and Netflix at my time. My mother enrolled me in the summer camp, where I could pick any activity. 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. Summer Camp doesn`t just include activities but will help along in life.” -Sandeep, Student, 1st Summer Camp
