To mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi, different programs and competitions are being conducted across the country for the school students. The District Science Centre, Tirunelveli organised a Skit contest on August 7 for the school students on the topic ‘Turning points in Gandhi’s Life’.

The students of Sri Jayendra Golden Jubilee School Sankarnagar won the first place in this contest. They enacted beautifully depicting the momentous decision Gandhiji made to change his attire from the elaborate Gujarati attire to a simple dhoti and shawl. Since this significant decision was taken by Gandhiji in Madurai in September 1921.  The Principal and Staff congratulated the students for their wonderful performance. Here we would like to mention that our school students also represented Tamilnadu in the National Level Gandhi Quiz conducted last year in Calcutta and won the third place.
