At Ekya, children are encouraged to be thinkers, doers and change makers. So in addition to living the lesson in their learning environments, they participate in various co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities. These include representing the Ekya colours at various inter-school competitions – a mix of sports, literary events, theatre, music, and art. Here are some of our success stories from across the calendar.
