DAV , AIROLI- A SILVER LINING
In a snug corner of one of the cities of Navi Mumbai stands tall the structure of one of the most esteemed Public Schools which has been creating positive ripples in society ever since its establishment. D.A.V Public School, Airoli stands proud of its manifold achievements and the ancient Indian Vedic values it upholds. The school walks upon the path of the lofty ideals propagated by the religious and social reformer, Swami Dayanand Saraswati and a committed Arya Samajist Mahatma Hansraj, an eminent Indian educationist who offered his selfless services to the cause of education.
Whenever there's a natural calamity or a crisis in the country, DAV Airoli proves to be a ray of hope, a silver lining in the dark looming clouds. The school displays a strong sense of social responsibility as its top most priority, being a part of Arya Samaj culture which propagates the Vedic values like human compassion and empathy. Under the dynamic leadership of the Principal Mrs. Suruchi Kataria the school emerges as a shining example of how tiny noble gestures can go a long way in making a huge difference in society and bringing out a positive change. D.A.V. Airoli had made a great difference in the recent past too by donating funds and collecting other essential items for the people affected by the floods in Kerela and Maharashtra.
In the wake of ongoing global crisis too in the form of COVID-19 pandemic, the whole DAV Airoli family joined hands together for a nobel purpose. Answering the call of duty, each staff member of DAV Airoli along with the Principal, donated generously for helping the needy and for fighting against the pandemic. Each one of them donated their one day salary to the 'PM Cares Fund' . Also, the school made arrangements for food items to be donated to NMMC for the needy people.
