An Introduction

AN EDUCATIONAL GROUP THAT EXCEEDS BOUNDARIES

  • We are a 30-year-old educational organisation in the heart of Bhubaneswar, The capital city of Odisha.

  • The infrastructure is interspersed with aesthetic figurines, greenery and a place of worship that reminds each one that Education is the sole path to the Omnipresent.

  • ODM has a touch of nature mingled with spiritualism. We believe in lending a child the wings of imagination, but the roots of Indian Values.

  • The existing ODM Public School, sports lush green campus, containing different blocks of state-of-the-art architecture, accommodating technology – driven education, which is at par with the western counterparts, inspiring quality. The symphony of nature and the waves of technology create an environment, conducive to global learning.

  • The campus ambience in itself gives one a feel of inter-cultural exchanges and thereby clear influences of everything appreciable in global cultures. The activities are designed in those divine lines of peace and harmony that prepare global citizens, skilled to take on the world, confidently.

The pandemic COVID-19 has kept us confined in our homes, but it has not succeeded in containing our thirst for achievements. The excitement of adventure, the camaraderie of inching forward neck to neck, the wait for result declaration and the impatience to hear one’s name in the winners list. All these are situations we easily relate to and love to be a part of. The present scenario cannot deprive us of all these experiences. Thus ‘Rendezvous’ was born. I am sure it will provide the stage to sashay your moment of glory under the arc lights.

ACADEMIC COUNSELOR

Human spirit aspires to spread vibes of happiness. A pandemic cannot dampen the spirit of positivity and wellbeing. Against all odds- the love of adventure persists in us to explore, expand, and then express the stimulations that have accrued as experiences.

‘Rendezvous’ gives an opportunity to children to interact in their similarity as artists and above all as human beings. In this event, the thought of global citizenship is reduced to a watermark in the backdrop and encourages you to plunge into a cultural assimilation. I wish success to all the gifted individuals who are participating in this unique online fest.

‘Rendezvous’ is a fest that opens an arena for cultural exchange. It aims to unite participants under the canopy of cultural globalisation, guided through a series of events. This will help establish social relations for transmission of ideas and promotion of peace and harmony. It prepares a string of cross-cultural interactions through dance, music, painting etc. I hope the vision of such an event is achieved through the wholehearted participation and fair play of all concerned.
