Dr. A. P. J Abdul Kalam @ Aura Edify Global School

Aura Edify Global School, Perinthalmanna, witnessed the opportunity of a life time – the visit of our former President, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. It was an event that brought in excitement, ecstasy and enthusiasm amongst both children and adults alike. For the first time in Malappuram District, more than 2,500 students from over 80 schools, participated in the event and was definitely a halcyon moment for each one of them. The school provided a platform, for the first time in Malappuram District, for the students of various schools in the district to hear Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.

Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam spoke on the topic “Education Empowers”. He shared with the students his unique experience with the students in a village called Paravur, near Kochi. He spelt out the formula for knowledge which is Creativity + Righteousness + Courage. Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam spoke about the Billion Trees programme and got the children took an oath to plant 10 trees. He concluded his speech administering a 10 point oath to each student present.

After this session, Dr Kalam inaugurated Robotics and Aero modeling activities that will form a part of the school’s curriculum. This is the first time a school in North Kerala, is introducing Aero modeling as a part of its curriculum. Aura Edify was also the first school in North Kerala to introduce Robotics.

As a community initiative, Aura Edify, Perinthalmanna and the new branch of the school in Kodungallur, have identified two government schools, where a team of students and teachers will visit the schools on regular intervals to teacher Robotics and Aero modeling. This is done so as to provide an unique opportunity to students who are differently privileged to have hands on experience in these two areas of science.

During Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam’s the visit students were given an opportunity to ask questions to him. Listening to Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam’s answers and his advice, couldn’t have left them with anything else but awe and admiration for the missile man of our motherland, India.

On the occasion we also had with us the District Collector of Malappuram District, Mr Mohandas who said that It is a cherishing moment for our children and this day will be forever a red-letter day of their lives.

Mr K. K. Ashraf, Chairman and Managing Director of Aura Academic Institutions Pvt. Ltd. gave the welcome address and Mr Joseph David, Principal, Aura Edify Global School, Perinthalmanna, spoke briefly about the school and its unique pedagogy.

Aura Edify Global School desires that when the children leave the portals of this school, they will leave with a set of strong academic qualifications to give them a choice in their future careers, a range of interests to sustain them throughout their lives and a set of attributes which will allow them to take their place as valuable, tolerant members of their society wherever this may be in the world.
