150th birth year of Swami Vivekanand People in India and across the world are celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.
As part of such celebration, Sri Ramakrishna Mission in Chennai started a Ratha Yatra of Vivekananda.
It started from Coimbatore and travelled many thousand kilometers before reaching Porur.
Our school children along with other nearby school children were invited to welcome the Ratham on 7th Jan 2014. We welcomed with our NCC band, one of our student enthralled public with his Silumbum, Hand written posters made by our children with Vivekananda's quotations were held high, one of our student read Quotations of Swami Vivekananda in public addressing system in Porur,Chennai.
The day will remain etched in the memories of those students who participated in this historical moment.
Omega school's entry for Design for Change School Challenge 2013 has been listed among the 200 most inspiring stories from India. Our story was about avoiding use of plastics in the campus.

Let us join hands and work as a community to make Omega a plastic free zone!
