Janmashtami
Janmashtami was celebrated on 14th August 2017 to mark the birth of Lord Krishna. Stories of Krishna's birth were narrated and songs sung. Clay pots were decorated and filled with packets of goodies like kurmura (puffed rice), candy sugar, battassa (flat sugar candy), flowers, confetti and smileys. The pots were then hung on decorated strings. Though the pot is broken to  procure the goodies, we tilted the pot and scattered the goodies. It was an enjoyable moment for the young Krishnas and Radhas.

They also spoke about the revolutionary change and progress that we as a nation have seen. A patriotic song was then sung that evoked a plethora of feelings in the audience.

Pet Day

During the Pre-Primary project on Pet animals, one child from Play Group spoke animatedly about his pet dog. This pet was invited to the school to give other children a first-hand experience. The dog being friendly, allowed children to pet him, thereby giving them a “Touch and Feel” experience which is an important sensory activity. This activity also promoted social interaction skills.
