Founder’s Day & 9th Annual day

Thursday the 26th June 2014

The Lalaji Memorial Omega International School flagged off its Decennial Celebrations with the Founder’s Day  being  commemorated  with great joy, verve and pride and clubbed with the 9th School Annual Function for Classes VI to XII.

 The Founder, Revered Parthasarathy Rajagopalachari, the spiritual head of the Shri Ram Chandra Mission had envisioned the setting up of a school that could inculcate spiritual values at the core of all its activities and named it after the Adi Guru, Pujyashree  Ram Chandraji Maharaj of Fatehgarh, who was affectionately called “Lalaji” by his disciples. So it was apt that the celebration of the school’s tenth birth anniversary for a year-long programme, should  commence  with the Founder’s Day on Thursday the 26th June 2014.
The main anchor for the evening’s events was Roshni of Class XII and the theme was “Let’s endeavour  together.”   After the invocation, the Head girl of the CBSE section,  Kavya Venkataraman  of Class XII welcomed the Chief guest Mr. P. Ravi, Regional Director, NIOS, Chennai as well as all the parents and other invited guests  who made up the august gathering.  Mr. S. Ramakrishnan, the Correspondent of the school  presented  the chief guest with a bouquet as a token of affection.  Next, Bhavana  Bhavani  Shankar and Saloni of Class XII  presented the School’s Annual Report, highlighting  the main activities, moments of pride, challenges  and  upcoming projects.
Mr.S. Ramakrishnan, the Correspondent  of the  School  then addressed the distinguished gathering and spoke of the Chairman, Mr. P.R.Krishna who had been a beacon and had led the school with a vision in tune with the Founder’s vision. He acknowledged the various long strides that the school had taken to reach the present  situation with multifarious facilities. He also mentioned the projects that have been realized and those that are going to be undertaken in the near future. He made special mention of the Sewage treatment plant , the environment supporting activities,  the Solar power utilization and the Special education to children needing extra  attention in learning.

This was followed by the Prize distribution to recognize the achievements of students as well as staff  in various spheres. The prizes were given away by the Chief guest Mr. Ravi.  

Following this, the Chief guest  addressed the gathering .  He said that he considered it a great honour to be in the ‘centre of excellence’ as he termed the school.  He said that the school was indeed imparting quality education which included spiritual as well as natural values. He complimented everyone for having set up a school in a large campus and providing very good  education to nearly 4600 students. He was convinced that the school was doing yeoman service and said that he could see the vision that the authorities had in mind and its efforts to introduce  open school opportunities to the students. He extolled the students to listen to their inner call and respond accordingly and to help in changing the attitudes of their parents and making a difference to the world.

 Following this a video with Master’s message on the occasion of Founder’s day, was played. It was a message that had been recorded  specially  on the previous day. Master conveyed his blessings and remembered how the school had started with Sister Jacquiline’s  efforts to start a Kindergarten and Primary school called “Baal Vatika” He fondly remembered  Sister Nirmala Sundaram and how she had readily accepted to be  Omega school’s first Principal and poured  her experience and effort into the new school. He also reminisced the visits he used to make and the process of acquiring 7 acres and gradually adding on to reach the present 14 or perhaps more acres or so of land for the Lalaji memorial Omega School. He also commended the work of Mr. S. Ramakrishnan, the Correspondent, the Senior Principal, Dr. Bhavani Shankar and Mr. P.R.Krishna, the Chairman, for all their  efforts in providing education for excellence. He congratulated the staff for being able to teach with technical teaching aids and bringing the school to a truly international standard. He conveyed his blessings to all the students, staff and management and said he wished he could have been a student in the school.

Next,  Shivendra Prasad Singh, of Class XII, the Head boy of the CBSE stream of the school, next expressed his gratitude to the Chief guest, the gathered guests and everyone that had helped directly or indirectly to add  lustre to the function and make it a memorable one.

This was followed by a short but meaningful cultural programme.  It  commenced with the newly composed school anthem, written by Vinita Venkataraman, the Music Teacher and set  to music by the students themselves. The song  is about the Vision of the Founder, affectionately called  ‘Master’ and the goals and values that he envisaged. This was followed by a fusion of theatre and dance forms in which the theme of finding out whether it was the heart leading  to education or education leading to the heart , was portrayed. As a finale, the first ten teachers and parents of the first ten students  of the school were invited on stage and honoured.

The memorable evening came to an end with the National Anthem.

World Earth Day, 2013
Posted on 23/04/13




Can humankind survive on a planet with ever-decreasing resources?
The Forest is the most precious resource on Earth.
We at Omega school believe that resources we take from forests such as paper have a huge impact on the environment if we continue obtaining it from trees.
Our school has a paper recycling plant to recycle paper. Omega students of Cambridge stream as well as students of CBSE Class 7th and 8th and a few students of CBSE Class XI have the initiative to make useful recycled products such as paper bags, files,folders, booklets and bookmarks from recycled waste paper.
This is the first major recycling initiative at Omega and we dedicate this to the World Earth Day, 2013.
We invite the management, teachers, students and all staff to come view the products and go forward to participate in initiatives to create and use recycled products at Omega.
Thank you.
