The Pune City Zone Sports Committee recently organised the Inter School Zilla Parishad matches for the year 2018-19. We are extremely pleased to announce that our students from Walnut School, Shivane have maintained a winning streak!

In Chess, Riya Marathe (Std. 8) and Samiha Kulkarni (Std. 7) have qualified for the Zonals. Riya, who has made it to the Nationals twice, had qualified for the Zonals last year as well. 
Inspired by Judit Polgar, young Riya is now aiming for the Mayor’s Cup along with the Zonals. Samiha, on the other hand, has made it to the Zonals for the first time. She admits to having felt nervous at times, but is now focusing her energy into prepping for the Mayor’s Cup.

In Swimming, Avneesh Nair (Std. 6), Prem Patil (Std. 8), Varad Pathak (Std. 8), Mohit Inamdar (Std. 8) and Arjun Patankar (Std. 7) have made it to the Zonals with their flawless performances. Avneesh, who considers Michael Phelps as his role model, took up this sport on his uncle’s insistence. The decision turned out to be a winner, as within a short span, Avneesh has added a gold medal, a silver medal and a bronze medal to his medal tally.
Prem and Varad had both achieved the third rank in previously held State and club competitions. Mohit has won at the ZP and Zonal levels. Arjun, who started at the tender age of 5, has been consistent in his performance. His latest medal tally is at a whooping 38 gold medals and 20 silver medals!

In Lawn Tennis, Shravani Khawale (Std. 8) has qualified for the Zonals.  When asked whether she bows down to pressure, she was quick to reply, “Not really. I just really enjoy playing tennis.”
Shravani trains every day for two hours. She is now gearing up for the Nationals, which would be held in October.

Our students have really done us proud! 
We wish them luck and more strength for their upcoming matches.

Little Hands, Writing!

Our primary students participated in a handwriting competition on 22 July, 2016. The eagerness and excitement of the students was evident in their preparations for this competition, which had begun almost a week in advance. They were practicing how to hold the pencil correctly and were working on perfecting their strokes. The students were given poems, which they had to neatly copy.

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.
