In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November, marking the birth centenary of the legendary freedom fighter and independent India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Pandit Nehru used to spend most of his valuable instants with children. He was affectionately called ‘Chacha Nehru’.
Children’s Day infers the fact that there is no conviction more sacred than the one mankind holds about children. There is no calling more important than confirming that their safety and rights are valued, that their welfare is respected, that their lives are free from fear and that they grow in peace.
Indian Educational School, Bhavans Pearl and Jack and Jill Mangaf did not leave any stone unturned when it came to celebrating this glorious occasion. The corridor of the Kindergarten section was gleaming, with the bulletin board adorning the theme of the day.
Teachers were in their highest spirits and revelry to perform and entertain for the tiny tots on this special day with an array of fun-filled programs in the auditorium.
The children were dressed in their finest attire, eagerly waiting to see what their beloved teachers had in store for them.
The teachers showcased programs which included a skit on ‘Chicken Little’, enacting different animals, followed by a Medley of Nursery Rhymes and a peppy cinematic dance.
The tiny tots were enthralled by their teachers’ performance on stage. This was followed by distribution of sweets to the children in their respective classes and an elaborate class party. The children were engaged in making Hand puppets as ‘Take Away’.
As the saying goes, “all good things come to an end”, and it was time for the children to head home. They thoughtfully waved goodbye to their teachers, with a glowing smile that said, “Thank you dear teachers for making our day memorable!”
