The School Programme of Major Akshay Girish Memorial Trust is an attempt to encourage school students to explore the concept of ‘Service to the Nation. To motivate adolescent children to be inspired by real life heroes in diverse fields while enhancing skills needed to become capable, caring, fit and motivated citizens. The classes are held once a month, usually on a Saturday, for one and half hours. The sessions are interactive with all students encouraged to participate. It is also activity-based learning with use of audio-visual aids and exposure visits.
