July 2022 Update
The month of July began with a very important celebration for students and teachers.

The beautiful and meaningful occasion of Gurupurnima was celebrated on 13th July, 2022, with a Special Assembly performance by the Wood Art and Handicraft Department. The noble role played by teachers and staff members was acknowledged through Guru Vandana, by way of an event called ’Sadhana Parivar Awards'. Here the teachers were felicitated for their hard work and special effort during virtual school from 2020 to 2022. The new staff members were welcomed with the "Naya Sadasya Category Awards'. The volunteers and care workers were also appreciated with gratitude for their selfless service at SPJ Sadhana School.

On the Sports front, our students are preparing intensively for competition at the Special Olympics International level for World Summer Games 2023 in Germany.

We were happy to receive recognition of the achievement of one of our students, Aryaman Kumar, during his internship at Welspun One-Logistics Parks. Aryaman has designed the letterhead as a part of the Graphics Designing Course he is pursuing. He has received a bouquet of chocolates and a letter of appreciation from Welspun, the company where he is enrolled for internship. This appreciation is also an endorsement of the efforts and training he received at SPJ Sadhana School. We reproduce below, the letter of appreciation from his parents. Such recognition is indeed very heart-warming!

Email from parents of Aryaman:
“Today we received a bouquet of chocolates and an appreciation letter from Welspun one, the company where Aryaman Kumar goes for his internship. We as parents were really touched by the gesture. The letter head is designed by Aryaman courtesy the 'Graphics Designing' course he is pursuing. I take this opportunity once again to thank each one of you at SPJ Sadhana School for helping Aryaman reach this milestone. It is because of the efforts your team puts in to train him in various facets of life .The confidence he has today is all because of the opportunities provided to him and also the appreciation he got for every little effort he did. This motivates him to become a better person every day. Words fall short to express our heartfelt gratitude”.

Thank you
