PURNAPRAMATI UTSAVA (ANNUAL FESTIVAL)
Purnapramati celebrates a week longannual festival in the middle of second term. In this event, called “Purnapramati Utsava” the kids at Purnapramati are given an opportunity to showcase their talent in varied fields like Mathematics, Humanities, Arts and Sports. On each day, celebrations will be on a specified field. Dignitaries and experts from respective fields will be invited on every day to interact with the kids. A grand public event, called Purnapramati Mahotsava, will be held on the concluding day.
PURNAPRAMATI VYAKHYA (SEMINARS ON EDUCATION)
Pursuing its special characteristic of “action research” Purnapramati is active in educational research, especially in the field of integrated education. This is a platform which feeds theory to practice, and practice to theory. It grooms the teachers as practicing researchers. In lieu of this, the School conducts regular research seminars in the field of education under the banner “Purnapramati Vyakhya”. It also acts as a knowledge exchange program for researchers in education elsewhere.
As a part of Purnapramati Utsava, the School honors a special individual every year through “Purnapramati Samman”. Purnapramati identifies and honors a person who has done significant work in integrating ancient and modern systems. It is believed that such great individuals would become role models for Purnapramtians. This is an exercise to show our respect to great souls, and is obviously not an award to them.
The first samman was honored on Sri Rajendra Singh, Waterman of India from Rajasthan, Winner of Magsaysay Award, in respect of his efforts to preserve our rivers through traditional methods of water conservation. His efforts demonstrate that a holistic approach, which integrates traditional and modern systems, is better suited to address contemporary challenges.
