JVBNA Gyanotsav 2021
Under the auspicious guidance of Samani Sanmati Pragyaji and Samani Jayant Pragyaji and with immense effort and planning from Prachi Ji, Shweta Ji, Gyanshala teachers and students, JVBNA celebrated the Gyanotsav - Celebration of Knowledge for the calendar year 2020-2021. For Central Gyanshala, similar to last year, this year also Gyanshala was celebrated virtually and was viewed around the world by extended families.
Gyanotsav 2021 was hosted by Gyanshala chief coordinator Prachi Shah along with Sonia Jain, Shweta Rampuria and Shweta Daftary. With each passing year, Gyanshala has evolved and brought about significant changes in the curriculum and year end projects. This year students were asked to recreate stories they studied using animation tools instead of writing stories for Gyanshala magazines and the output was just mind blowing. This was followed by recognition of all the bright and wonderful Gyanshala students along with individual achievements, Gyanshala teachers and feedback from graduating Gyanshala students, teachers and parents. The Student of the Year award went to Riya Jain and the Teacher of the Year award went to Poonam Bafna for the calendar year 2020-2021.
Samani Sanmati Pragyaji gave her blessing to the students and thanked unconditional support provided by teachers. This was followed by beautifully choreographed performances by kids (a must watch). Shweta ji Daftary provided the details on various JVBNA online studies and education initiatives. The program concluded with vote of thanks from JVBNA chairman Surendra Ji Kankaria and JVBNJ President Ashish Jain followed by mangal path from Samani Ji.
North Gyanshala hosted their Gyanotsav at Siddhachalam Temple on 6th June. Kids really enjoyed seeing each other after a very long time.
