Sixteen students of Walnut School, Fursungi recently participated in the 32nd Pune District Kickboxing Championship. The competition was held at Shivkamal Mangal Karyalay, Fursungi on 29th of July. And, we are extremely delighted and proud, to announce that our kick boxers have delivered a top notch performance yet again. 

Our students won a thumping nineteen medals in different categories.This terrific tally consists of five gold medals, five silver medals and nine bronze medals. Which means that all our students have qualified for the State Championship which will be held at Ahmednagar in September.

Gold Medalists: Nakul Tajne (Std 5), Harsh Jadhav (Std 6), Krishna Ufale (Std 3), Ayush Chavan (Std 1), and Parth Pawar (Sr.Kg).

Silver Medalists: Nakul Tajne (Std 5), Soham Khot (Std 2), Rajveer Kale (Std 3), Atharv Birajdar (Std 2), and Bhargavi Taru (Std 5).

Nakul Tajne, our star performer, has yet again impressed us with his performance. He won a gold medal in Point Form category, a silver medal in Musical Form category, and a bronze medal in Light Contact Form category. 
Harsh Jadhav, too, exhibited an outstanding performance. He bagged two medals; a gold medal in  Point Fight category, and a bronze medal in Musical Form category.

Mr. Tushar Pawar, the sports teacher and coach, is happy with the way his champs have performed. “They have been practicing really hard for the past 7-8 months,” he says. “The regular practice of focused pad workout, body bending, kick balancing, running, meditation and fighting practice has helped to improve their game a lot.”  
He believes that all of them have the potential to represent India at the highest level.

We really hope that happens and can’t wait to see that! But, for now, it’s the next level that all our kick boxers are focusing on. And, for that, we wish them more strength and good luck.

Fursungi Visit - July 17, 2017

Arpita Karkare Madam had gone to visit the peaceful and green Fursungi Campus of Walnut School. As there are hardly any buildings in the immediate vicinity, it’s very breezy, even during the peak summer months. On this monsoon day, it was absolutely beautiful! The kids had just finished their snacks early and had some time before they had to go back to their class. Even though she had meetings lined up in the school ,looking at those kids, she just couldn’t move ahead. She absolutely HAD to chat with them a bit.
