Humanity is a term that is slowly becoming confined only to the poems and prose. People today are more concerned about their mobile network connections rather than their heart connections and thus in a situation like this it becomes the moral duty of a school to cultivate students who are not only good at mathematics or science but are also good at social welfare.
ODM public school which is one of the best CBSE schools in Bhubaneswar has always tried that community services should be embedded in the lifestyle of students to make them more humans and not robots. This is why students at ODM have always believed in giving back to society and contributing to society.
ODM was chosen as UN Nodal School by Gandhi Global Foundation making it the best school in Odisha. By being chosen as an UN Nodal School, ODM has been endowed with the responsibility to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the welfare of society with the efforts of its students and management in the local community.
