Keeping in mind the significance of celebration in the lives of the children, Delhi Public School planned a very interesting activity for students of Nursery and Preparatory, ”Carnival Treat “which was unique in its own way. This activity was conducted on 25th October 2018 in school plaza. The ambience was beautifully decorated with buntings, stars, pictures, models, rangolis and the entire venue was embraced by torans of fresh marigold flowers which also gave the ambience a traditional and festive look. Children of Nursery came in party dresses and their class teachers also wore dresses depicting different parties. Children of Preparatory were dressed up in traditional wear along with their class teachers who were also dressed up in outfits depicting different religious festivals. The special assembly constituted several exciting and entertaining performances by the little children. The teachers left no stone unturned in making this activity a success and memorable for children. The program commenced with the prayer song “Praise Him and showers of blessings”. The presentation started with the presentation put up by Nursery children and teachers who sang and danced on a birthday song and on a Christian wedding scene. This was followed by festival celebrations on which teachers and children of Preparatory danced on the traditional tunes of Ganesh Chaturthi and Deepawali. Students of class Prep children also presented an enactment on the topic “Green Diwali” which gave a message to celebrate Eco friendly Diwali. The performance was appropriate and impactful. The performances were supported by the music department who helped in making the program livelier.
Indoor activities were also organized. Nurserians started the day with the discussion about festivals and parties during their circle time. Children also prepared decoration materials for the party like buntings, stars, paper balloons etc. followed by an activity sheet. Children of Preparatory drew pictures related to favourite festival on creative writing sheet. One day prior they prepared invitation cards for carnival party and exchanged among themselves. An exciting outdoor activity “Chase the rabbit game” was organized for Preparatory where the children sat on the floor in a ring with their hands on each other’s shoulders.
After a fun filled day at school on 25th, Children of Nursery and Preparatory had a follow up activity where they drew party Scene and things used for party in their art journal. They also watched informative videos related to festivals and parties.
