Bangalore, October 30, 2023: Kangaroo Kids International Preschool, India’s No. 1 Premium International Pre-school Brand, conducted the Aksharabhyasam ceremony on the auspicious occasion of Vijayadashmi, to symbolize the beginning of a child’s education journey. This significant ritual, also known as “Vidyarambham,” is dedicated to Goddess Saraswati, the embodiment of wisdom.
Kangaroo Kids believes in embracing and honoring cultural traditions from an early age that plays an essential role in the holistic development of students. Kangaroo Kids centres across southern India took part in the celebration. To celebrate the start of a child’s educational journey and emphasize the value of early childhood education, Kangaroo Kids kickstarted admissions on the auspicious occasion of Vijayadashmi festival.
Vijayadashmi is observed to not only celebrate the victory of good over evil, but it also denotes a time for all the positive beginnings for everyone. Vijayadashami is the tenth and final day of the Navaratri celebrations and is considered auspicious for beginning learning in any field. The Vijayadashami celebration served as a platform through which Kangaroo Kids raised cultural awareness and the importance of unity and teamwork in young learners.
During the Aksharabhyasam ceremony, the young learners engaged in a series of heartwarming activities that embraced the spirit of this cherished tradition. The children, dressed in traditional attire, gathered with great enthusiasm to begin their educational journey. As part of the celebration, Kangaroo Kids hosted a puja with the young learners and invited a pandit to do the puja and bless the children, fostering a sense of spirituality and cultural significance, ensuring that toddlers take their first steps in the world of knowledge with profound blessings.
