Children are the future of our nation and to have a brighter future ahead, it is our responsibility to make the children aware about our environment. To impart the same, Major Co-Curricular Activity, “Season’s Delight” was organised on 19th of July, 2018 for classes Prep and Grade 1. The activity aimed at adding charm and thrill in the lives of the children and enable them to categorize different seasons and to develop love and care for Mother Nature. It also aimed at providing rich experience to the children so that learning becomes significant and fun filled.
On the day of the activity, the foyer was decorated with hanging clouds of raindrops and snowflakes. A rainbow in the cloud added charm to it. Four kiosks were put up to depict the four seasons; Class Prep portrayed Summer and Rainy season and Class 1 depicted Winter and Spring season. Different costumes worn by the children and charts related to the respective seasons added beauty to the kiosks. The stage backdrop comprised of the four seasons – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
