Children’s day is celebrated on 14th November all over India to honour Jawaharlal Nehru and commemorate his birthday. He earned the epithet of Chacha Nehru simply because of the love he had for the youngest generation of the country. He knew well that these tiny tots, today’s children are tomorrow’s citizens. Celebrating Children’s Day is to celebrate childhood. This day brings out the child in us too and we get an opportunity to celebrate that innocence and complete involvement with the ‘here and now’ with great zeal. The pre-primary section of Staford School celebrated Children’s Day on Wednesday 13th November and allowed the little ones to have a holiday on 14th.
The teachers of the prep section went all out to celebrate the event with gusto and at the same time ensured that children understand the significance of this day. The day began with the assembly and it was here that the teachers took the opportunity to initiate children into the significance of the day, by showing a PPT on Pandit Jawaharlal Lal Nehru. The children even garlanded Pt. Nehru’s photograph and wished him a happy birthday!
After the assembly it was time for children to have fun. They sang songs with the teachers, danced to music and then watched a movie! Later the children had a ball of a time playing various games and participating in fun-filled activities to keep up the peppy mood. The games while entertaining and fun-filled also helped develop their motor skills. Be it the balance the cushion, gather the balls, hop-skip-jump, frog race, or other games, children not only had fun but in the process practiced balancing, holding, throwing, catching, jumping, walking, running, and skipping in the course of all these activities. Our little ones had a lot of fun playing with balloons and spent quality time with their class teachers inside and outside the classroom.
It was a no-books day, but the Children had ample learning opportunities through fun and games. They were pampered with goodies, cards, balloons and games. It was a day packed with fun and frolic and their happy, cheerful banter added colour to the day. The children looked adorable in their coloured clothes, with the girls turned out in beautiful frocks. Staford School’s prep section stole the hearts of everyone with their bright eyes, cheery voices and energetic activities. Staford wishes its children the very best and a very happy Children’s Day!
