Epic of Ramayana
To make the children familiar with our culture, scriptures and national heritage the KG children presented the ‘Epic of Ramayana’ in the dance and drama form (right from birth of Shri Ram to his Rajya Abhishek). Keeping pace with the modern times the story narration was done in the rap form accompanied by melodious background music and The Principal and Heads were welcomed with stoles, which were also worn by all the Pre-Primary teachers. All the KG children took part in the function with great zeal and enthusiasm. While they were on stage it seemed as if each child had got under the skin of the character he/she was portraying.
They had even memorized the rap lines and were heard singing them, along with the narrator. The KG parents and Nursery children watched and enjoyed the show. Everyone was so entranced that there was pin drop silence in the auditorium broken only to the sound of JAI SIA RAM. Diyas were lit and prashad distributed at the end of the show. The after effect of this presented by our tiny tots was such that even after the show ended the Lords name lingered on the lips of the parents and children coming out of the auditorium.
Thanks Giving Day
A Special assembly was organised to celebrate ‘Thanks Giving Day’ in order to teach the children to respect the people who do things for them in everyday life. All the helpers in the school from the Gardener, Ayah, Nurse, Plumber, Driver, Carpenter, Electrician, Security Guard to the people who work in the office were invited and introduced to the children. Nursery children sang a thank you song and presented thank you cards to them. They also performed a skit depicting the importance of thanks giving. This small gesture by the little ones warmed the hearts of all the helpers and there was a smile on their lips and a spring in their steps as they left to carry on with their everyday tasks.
