Independence is Happiness (Primary)

To spread the happiness and celebrate the completion of sixty-nine years of  Independence the teachers and boys of Standard 3 put up a programme on 13th August, 2016 in the School Hall.
The programme began with a prayer and hymn asking God to bind us together. A few boys then began a discussion on what independence really means. Unity- the central theme was clearly brought out throughout the program starting with the play which highlighted the fact that we must be united in order to progress. Amidst the discussion, children dressed in traditional costumes of different states yet again emphasized Unity in diversity in our motherland. The boys then danced to the song Bharat humko Jaan se Pyara Hain.. filling the hall with the spirit of patriotism. This was followed by a fashion show which showcased the numerous Indian Achievers from different fields of life who have made their mark in the World. Last but not the least the choir sang We shall overcome as well as Hum honge kamiyab with the message that as long as we are united we shall overcome all obstacles.
The programme ended with a Vote of Thanks given by our HeadMistress Tr. Jennifer. The entire assembly then sang the National Anthem before dispersing from the Hall in an orderly manner.

Kite flying day (Primary)

Makar Sankranti, the festival of kites and til chikkis was celebrated on the 14th of January. Makar Sankranti literally means the movement of the Sun into Capricorn. It is the festival of til-gul where sesame and jaggery laddoos or chikkis are distributed among all and they are generally accompanied by the saying “ til-gul ghya ani gud gud bola” which means “ Eat these sesame seeds and jaggery and speak sweet words.

The boys from Stds I to IV were asked to bring their own kites and phirkis to fly during the durated time. It was an amazing sight to see the colourful kites in the sky and each little boy trying hard to keep their kite flying high. One could also see that special bonding between the parents and their boys while flying their kites, it was like ‘My Dad is the bestest!!’. Some parents even re-lived their childhood days and kept encouraging their sons by shouting ‘ Come on son, you can do it!’ . The boys thoroughly enjoyed this activity to the fullest and returned to class exhausted.
