Celebrating Festivals

In our multicultural society we need to instill and enforce the universal values of brotherhood, tolerance, peace, compassion, patriotism and solidarity in our children. A celebration in the form of special assemblies is an effort to sensitize students towards living in harmony in a diverse society. They are taught to learn to use their thinking ability and skills to work for a safe and better world and to live in harmony with their fellow beings.

The assembly started with a melodious group song in praise of Lord Krishna, followed by an informative conversation between students to highlight the importance of the festival. An enthralling group dance was performed by the students to celebrate the birth and life of Lord Krishna. A short skit was also enacted by the students of Class II to encapsulate the essence of true friendship through the story of Shri Krishna and Sudama.

Teachers' Day was celebrated with great pomp and show. To mark the occasion, book marks and sweets were given by the Prefectorial board to show reverence to the mentors who toil hard to bring out the best in students.
