The Pre-primary wing of Staford School celebrated yet another Colour Day on 20th Dec. 2013; this time the colour chosen was ‘Pink’. Dressed in pink, the children and teachers celebrated the day with great enthusiasm through fun filled activities.
The colour pink, is associated with childhood, youth, vitality, health, femininity, sensitivity, tenderness, and love. It is also associated with unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. Among all other colours, pink stands out as a light and soft colour that is spontaneously chosen by children given to tenderness and kindness.
The theme of the pre-primary assembly on ‘Pink Day’ focused on rhymes and poems and songs associated with the colour. The children were taught songs related to the colour- which they enjoyed to the fullest. Using pictures and objects in pink such as the lotus, pink flowers, ice-creams, strawberry-candies, pink pigs and flamingoes, the children were made aware of the presence of pink in their surroundings, environment and life. The children also appreciated the various shades of pink in the dresses they wore and had fun spotting pink in their immediate surroundings.
The day was packed with many activities- all of which drew children’s attention to pink. They enjoyed cotton-dabbing the pictures of ice-creams and colouring the ice-cream sticks, making a lotus full of hand prints and pasting cotton on ice-cream cones. The fun game of “spotting the pink objects” in class was something that the children enjoyed all through the day.
Thus the cold winter day was made beautiful and pink with the cheer and sweet innocence of the children that spread much happiness all around.
